ALISSA is a simple dress with magical ruffles at the armholes, loose fitting and cute details . That’s what a girl’s dress should be like!
For the dress we have used our double gauze Item No: 134757
You can sew this pattern using practically any material, jeans, poplin, sweatshirt or jersey, let your creativity run wild!
If using stretchy fabrics a lining is not needed and you can use cuffing at the neckline instead of the facing.
For heavy fabrics such as jeans or wool, we recommend that you choose a lighter fabric in a similar colour for the lining.
Are you a fabric dealer? In our shop you will find a large selection of new, printed muslin fabrics!
If you haven’t sewn muslin yet and are wondering if you should iron the fabric then follow this guide:
To prevent it from shrinking later, the fabric should be washed before being cut, lightly dried in the tumble dryer and ironed smooth.
Since the muslin has a slightly crinkled structure, cutting the pattern without ironing is almost impossible.
To get the crushed fabric look again, you can wet the dress under running water after sewing, wring it out well and let it dry.
