The Sumekko Dress is a collaborative pattern inspired by fadanista.com that we wanted to share with everyone. This is a clever maxi singlet dress that only has a centre back seam. It can be shaped at the waist with optional waist darts.
The Sumekko Dress is a PDF pattern is designed to be hacked and personalised, and has different length suggestions for a singlet or knee length version. It is suitable for knits with a minimum of 20%stretch.
Sizes 8 - 16
The element that makes the pattern unique is also its limitation: it has no side seams, which means the whole pattern must fit onto the width of the fabric. Larger sizes would need wider fabric, and that is not easily available at this stage.
