The Amelie Dress

The Amelie Dress sewing pattern

Get your spring sewing off to a chic start with The Amélie Dress pattern’s elegant square neckline and pretty fluted sleeve option.

Sure, we might love sewing with cosy jerseys and snuggly knits – but we are so ready for summer frock season! We can’t wait to stock up on drapey viscoses and breezy cottons ready to start on our spring/summer me-made wardrobe. And where better to begin than The Amélie Dress?

With her chic square neckline, vintage-inspired fit-and-flare silhouette and optional fluted sleeve, there’s no sunny occasion we wouldn’t wear this versatile dress to. Weekend barbecue? You’ll find us there in an Amélie made in a ditsy floral cotton. Special occasion? You bet we’ll be bringing out the luxurious crepes for a show-stopping style.
