April's pattern of the month is the Alisson dress, perfect if you're looking to add some movement and lightness to your wardrobe! This dress features ruffles that float all around you.
The cut is distinguished by its V-neckline in the back and front, its long shoulders that create like little sleeves and its trapeze skirt that can be embellished with ruffles. The Alisson dress is one sewing pattern but three possibilities! Lightweight, flowing fabrics work well for ruffled dresses, such as viscose crepe, chambray or a lightweight cotton. Be sure to choose a fabric with enough movement for even more of a floating effect. While sewing, you can use the guide and our YouTube videos for invisible closures and darts.
Inspired by the bohemian chic universe, this sewing pattern takes the key elements of this unique style such as the ruffles or the casual and elegant look. The moodboard shows the main inspirations for this pattern.
For the creation of your Alisson dress we can recommend colors such as off-white, beige or powder pink. Floral patterns are also a key element for a bohemian chic dress. You can sew the Alisson dress in a long or short version with embroidered or printed flowers.
We imagine it worn with flat sandals for a casual look or with heels for a dressier evening. You can also add a belt to mark your waist and give structure to the dress such as the Daphnée belt and the Delphine belt.
In short, the Alisson dress is perfect for hot summer days or for a romantic evening.
