Sewing pattern and tutorial drape neck jersey dress

* Jersey (Fabric width: 140 cm)
   - 125 cm (size 04 - 14)  

The sewing pattern is available in my online shop. Sizes range from XS to XXL.

When working with knits, it is important not to stretch or pull the fabric while sewing. Also use a stretch needle and a stretch stitch. In this pattern all seams are sewed with a twin needle.
