The Betty Dress Sewing Pattern by Sew Over It

Regular price £16.00

Tax included.

Make yourself a beautiful 1950’s inspired dress based on the style of Betty Draper!

With a fitted bodice and full circle skirt, Betty is super flattering for all figures, nipping you in at the waist and flaring out to create a beautiful silhouette. The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back, has facings around the neckline and armholes and a machine finished hem.

The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.

Sewing Level
The Betty Dress is an advanced beginner pattern. We recommend you’ve made a couple of garments before and had a go at inserting an invisible zip.

 

Fabric Suggestions
The Betty Dress works beautifully in a variety of different fabrics, including light to medium weight cotton and cotton lawn, rayon, crepe and even lightweight wools. Because of the nature of the circle skirt, we recommend avoiding any strong one-way directional prints.

 

Fabric Requirements
The Betty Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements in the images.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

Testimonials

Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
