Pattern Fantastique - Ether Dress
The Ether Dress has been designed with simple construction, maximising volume and texture, the Ether will make you feel like you are from another world!
The structure is anchored by a rope (or you can use contrast fabric) that ties off at the centre front split. The rope crosses at the centre back into a loop radiating gathers. The loop detail lowers the centre back volume for an elegant silhouette. The pattern includes two views, one with sleeves and one without. And yes it has pockets!
The Ether dress is drafted two sizes to a grade with the flexible gathering to be used to adjust the fit.
The mid-centre front and back are adjustable for width, the armholes ungathered sitting smoothly against the body. The centre back neckline sits approximately
11-14 cm below the centre front neckline. The necklines can be raised and lowered to your preference but keeping the depth ratio will maintain balance and keep the side seam and hem straight. The body and sleeve lengths are graded for each size. The centre front neckline to finished hem lengths are written on the pattern for each size.
The construction of the Ether is simplified for textured and speciality fabrics. If you are concerned about rope casings or binding pieces being difficult to handle, use a plainer contrast fabric for these parts.
Sizes: Size 6-30 included (see last image for body measurements)
Recommended Fabrics: Works well in light to mid weight fabrics that gather well including silk, cotton and linen. Fabric weights that are generally below
200 GSM and compress well are advised.
