The fabulous thing about this pattern is that for many it can be made in a woven or a knit fabric. The Drape Back Tunic sewing pattern is available as a one-size only pattern with instructions to increase the size and length printed on the pattern. These images are for the sewing instructions for woven fabrics but I will make notes regarding the sewing instructions you need for knit fabrics. If you cut this pattern as it is in a woven fabric it’ll fit up to Aus Size 12. If you cut it in a two-way (four-way in the US) stretch knit fabric that has some elastane content it can fit up to a Aus Size 22.
Altogether there are three main steps to sewing this pattern together. As you can see in the diagram below I’ve added a numbered guide to the pattern so you can follow the simple sewing steps. What’s difficult with this pattern is that it ‘s not a shape you’d expect in a sewing pattern, so at first you’ll want to read the instructions so that you are familiar with the different parts of the garment.
The detailed sewing instructions for this pattern are included as a PDF download when you buy the sewing pattern. It’s a very quick make with no more than 5 steps to complete this elegant drape dress.
The major difference you’ll find when constructing a knit version of this garment is that it’s best the finish off the edges of the neckline and armholes first below you sew your seams on the four thread overlocker.
