Pattern Puzzle - Triple Twist Jersey Dress

Monday, May 07, 2018

Here we have another re-issue of my very early Pattern Puzzle posts. I've up-dated the images and improved the instructions.  I'm really enjoyed the regular Saturday morning Pattern Puzzles on my facebook page and hope to return to them sometime soon.  Here is the sketch, pattern plan and pattern pieces for the front of the Triple Twist Jersey dress.  Please note this style only works with my knit block and two-way stretch jersey fabric.Triple Twist Jersey Dress


I've drawn up my pattern plan using my knit block and placing in the design lines in the most convenient places. This design is revealing in many ways so the location of the twist and fabric is very important. Also note the overlap of each of the twist sections at the side seam. I believe this should be at least 6cm because it will be under much stress in the final wearing of this garment.


Pattern Plan Triple Twist Jersey

The green areas (in the diagram below) are where the pattern has been slashed and opened up to include extra fabric for the twist and drape.  The amount of fabric you add will vary according to the fabric you are using and size of the dress.  Light fabrics will require more fabric added and heavier fabrics will require less.  If you're working in to a larger size then I suggest you consider adding more fabric n these areas to maintain the proportion in the garment.

If you'd like to learn my method for creating Twist Drape Patterns I have a detailed worksheet for making Jersey Twist Patterns. For just a few dollars you'll get the same training you'd get if you came to the workshop in my studio.  If you're lucky enough to be located in Australia then maybe you'd like to checkout the workshops I run in different locations around the country.

The beauty of this style is that you get to work with single and double twists all in the one pattern.  However this pattern does come with a warning - it is not for the faint hearted as there is a lot of exposed skin!

You'll find more of my pattern puzzle creations in this dedicated Pinterest album.

Hi Carol, I just found the original post and it has only a couple of comments. One person solved it very quickly. https://www.facebook.com/studiofaroau/photos/a.464218726932038.102202.464204903600087/594437983910111/?type=3&permPage=1

SEWING PATTERNS

All My Sewing Patterns
These are the first of my sewing patterns as PDF downloads for you to buy and sew.  The more I sell the more time I have to make new ones.  So if you fancy supporting the work I do here on the well-suited blog, this is your opportunity.  These patterns are based on my size chart listed here on the website.


ALL MY GARMENT BLOCKS

All my garment blocks.
Garment blocks are the basic template we use to make fashion patterns.  They are not patterns in themselves as they have no design detail.  My garment blocks also don't have any seam allowances as they are never sewn together once the fit is perfected.  If you look at any of my Pattern Puzzle posts you'll see that I usually start with a block then modify to achieve my new design idea.  These garment blocks are also based on my size chart as required for the mass production of fashion clothing.
