If you want to make a dress out of the dove hack dress pattern, you’ll need to modify the front and also back pieces, and also make new underside hem facings if you don’t want a wrapped hem. The costume will be stitched up exactly as described in the instructions once they have created their new pattern pieces.
The costume will look good if the steps below are followed-
Step 1: Take a piece of paper, trace the front as well as the back pieces of a Dove shirt layout in the appropriate size, leaving 1-2 feet of space further to stretch the pattern. If you usually the top shapes, do just that using help extend or short line just on the pattern as usual.
Step 2: We can now start making changes. Let’s begin only with the back pattern. 1′′ above the long or short line, mark the “waistline” on the new pattern. If a shirt pattern was cut short, you might want to increase this line marginally higher. Draw a perpendicular line to the fold line. This line will decide in which the side of the dress the seams will flare so it can fit over the hips appropriately if required.
Step 3: For the hip line, draw a further line parallel to the waistline. The widest part of the hips should be this point. Try on the outfit to find the widest point on the hip, and put the pin along the side of the seam. To determine how much further down the hip line is measured first from armscye down the length. Please remember that the top part of the side seam on the pattern piece has a 5/8′′ seam.
Step 4: Extend the folded line of the pattern with line A.
Step 5: We’ll now determine in which line B will cross through all along the hip line. They will add 5.5′′ to have enough ease for free movement so that you can sit comfortably. Add 5.5 inches to the hip measurement. Divide the total by four to get the answer. The seam stipend is then added at 5/8′′.
Step 6: Draw a line till the hip point from the point that was intersected on the waistline till the shirt pattern. Carry the line to the ground of the page.
Step 7: We’ll try to keep the shirt’s curved hem as much as possible. We would first recognize the side point all alongside seams in sequence to get that curve.
Step 8: From the slight aside to the fold line, trace a straight line “C” parallel to the midsection as well as the hip line.
Step9: Sketch a point 7.75′′ beneath line C along with line A. It will be the dress’s center bottom point.
Step 10: Using the classic Dove pattern throughout your size, match up the center bottom points and line up the lowest back curve on the fold line.
Step 11: Match the side points both on patterns and move the initial bottom curve to the outside seam edge.
Step 12: To create a standard curve on the new pattern, connect the initial hemlines.
Step 13: Marking the back pattern portion will be used to create a new side rim for the dress pattern.
