The Shawl Collar Dress
PDF sewing pattern


A flattering, fluid dress with shawl collar and folded, pleat front detail. 

This pull-on style has no zips or fastenings but handy in-seam pockets. The grown-on sleeves with underarm inserts skim the body and allow freedom of movement.

Due to the minimal seam allowance at the underarm, the fabric edges need to be finished with an overlock stitch. This is to prevent fraying and avoid bulk.

There is an additional step-by-step instruction of how the pleat is constructed HERE and a step-by-step to the underarm insert HERE
