The Suzy dress is a comfortable, elegant and easy to sew garment. Intended for knit fabrics, it is the perfect dress to take you from work to weekend. Easy to style up or down, it would be a comfortable, yet chic alternative to the usual festive dress code.
Suzy comes with two neckline variations: Version 1 features a scoop neckline, while version 2 comes with an elegant boatneck. It includes in-seam pockets and there are two sleeve lengths to choose from, short or 3/4 length, which makes this dress perfect to wear all year round.
The Suzy dress pattern was designed with adventurous beginners in mind. Even if you haven’t sewn with knit fabrics before, you will be able to tackle this project in a few hours.
The Suzy dress is designed for knit fabrics with two-way stretch. We recommend using medium weight knits with at least 20% stretch, such as cotton jersey, cotton spandex or ponte di Roma. It is best to stay away from very thin and very stretchy fabrics, especially if you are making the dress versions, as these fabrics tend to stick to your body and aren’t very flattering. In addition, knits with more weight to them are are much easier to handle and work with, so keep that in mind if you are a beginner in working with these types of fabrics.
Our patterns come in sizes UK 4-28 ((US 0-24, EU 32-56). They are drafted for an approximate height of 1.65 m (5.4 ft) and a B cup. Please check the product photos for the detailed sizing chart.
