Nina Lee Mayfair Dress Pattern
Fabric is sold in half metre increments, anything above 0.5 metres will be sent as a continuous length. For example, if you require 1.5 metres you’ll need to add 3 to your cart.
The Mayfair Dress is a jersey dream designed to carry you from office to cocktails, from beach to bar, or from sofa to fridge and back again(!) – it’s comfortable, elegant, supremely flattering and wonderfully versatile. With three sleeve lengths and a knee-length or maxi skirt option, this pattern has got all situations covered. Its relaxed fit and gently flowing lines create a winning combination of easy-to-wear and effortlessly stylish. Pair the maxi with sandals and a broad-brimmed hat in the summer; pair the knee-length with long sleeves and tights and boots to see you through the winter. Mayfair is for all occasions, all year!
The dress features an all-in-one grown-on collar and facing, set-in sleeves and a gathered waist at the centre-front, with an attached waist tie for tying at the back or front of the dress.
Skill level: confident beginner/intermediate. No experience sewing with knits necessary – the pattern includes a section on ‘Tips for Sewing with Knits’.
Knit fabrics with 25% crosswise stretch and with some drape, e.g. viscose jersey, stretch velvet or soft cotton jerseys.
50 cm ( 20 inches) clear elastic, 1cm wide
