1) Download the sewing pattern for free
This pattern is drawn on an A4 sheet in real size, but be careful, it does not include margins for the seams. You must therefore add 1cm of margins (surplus) on the side seams and shoulders. At the bottom of the dress, for a hem you need 1.5 – 2cm. As you are going to braid the neckline and the armholes, there is no need for surpluses at this level.
