frau maerz dress sewing pattern and fabrics collection
frau_maerz is one of the most famous content creators in the German-speaking world for sewing, DIY and fashion. Andrea’s style is characterized by simple shapes, bold colors and timeless but modern and hip design.
Now she has developed her first own fabric collection in cooperation with us. The result is a small fabric series that picks up both the color and pattern trends of the year and can be combined in many ways.

Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of the lower collar and onto the two facing pieces.
Fold the facings in half lengthwise, wrong sides together, and iron.
Reinforce the end of the incision in the front piece on the wrong side of the fabric with a small piece of fleece linen to prevent it from tearing.
With right sides together, pin the neckline panels open to the slit – the shorter end facing the armhole and stitch in the width of the sewing foot.
This seam ends 1 cm below the neckline edge. Repeat on the other side.
Cut the front piece diagonally at the lower slit end close to the seam.
Place seam allowances in the facings.
Stitch the facings 0.2 cm wide on top of each other.
Also topstitch the other edge of the facing 0.2 cm wide.
Turn the lower slit end of the facing to the wrong side of the fabric.
Turn the tip of the notch to the wrong side of the fabric and topstitch across the tip and the facings close to the seam.
Place pleat on back piece as marked, pin in place on seam allowance.
Pin this piece to shoulder yoke right sides together, sew.
Topstitch shoulder seams.
Topstitch one collar piece to neckline. Seam allowance overlaps at facing. Topstitch collar to each other. Turn right side out. Topstitch collar along neckline 0.2 cm apart. Topstitch collar 0.2 cm wide.
Pin and sew pocket pouches to side seam edges of front and back.
Make seam allowance-deep incisions in the top and bottom edges of the pocket openings of the back piece and place seam allowances on the side of the back piece and topstitch close to edge.
Work seam allowances of pocket bags of front piece in the same way.
Sleeve and side seams
Sew side seams first from sleeve hem edges to top edge markings of pocket welt and then from bottom edge markings of pocket welt to hem edge.
Turn hem allowance at bottom sleeve edges to the outside, turn in another 1 cm and topstitch in place.
Turn hem allowance inward at bottom edge of dress, topstitch in place.
