Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class, I’m going to teach you how to make an Amazon dress.
The Amazon dress is characterized by its silhouette, at the top, it is a fitted dress and at the bottom, it has volume creating this very romantic silhouette.
This pattern is really interesting because it seems that this dress is made up of 8 pieces but in reality, there are 2 patterns and thanks to the seams we can create this structure.
I already taught you how to do the box pleat in the Pleated Circle Skirt class, so I recommend you look at that one first.
Today’s class begins by making the front pattern, for this, we are going to use the front bodice block up to the hip.
Where we will transform the length, and the neckline and we will add these folds so that when sewing the seams is fitted at the top.
For today’s class, we are going to imagine that this design has a sleeve so I am not going to do the facing of the armhole.
Remember that in today’s class, I am going to give you all the necessary measurements so that you can make the same sample that I do, but you already know that you can change them to your personal taste or your client’s taste.
As always, if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your account, in the support section.
