Make a fun and swishy summer dress with a full skirt and princess seams.

Swishy Princess Seamed Dresses

The dress features an easy fit that skims the figure, two skirt lengths, two pocket options (side inseam, or patch pockets set into the side and side-front seams), two sleeve options (cap and flutter), a deep scooped neck, and front buttons.  The pattern is designed for woven fabrics.

Swishy Princess Seamed Dresses

Working with Leimomi’s princess seamed dress pattern you’ll learn how to:

  • do fit-as-you-sew adjustments on princess seamed bodices to suit your individual curves
  • sew princess seams that sit smoothly over your bust
  • sew pockets that sit neatly and invisibly in the side seams
  • set in sleeves
  • make your own bias tape
  • work with bias facings to get the perfect finish
  • sew curved necklines so they sit flat, and are perfectly symmetrical
  • sew front buttons
