  • Description: Vintage Skipper-inspired A-line dress with collar & cuffs.
  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Tips: Use a patterned fabric for the bodice/sleeves and a solid color for the collar/cuffs for a classy look. Attaching the cuffs could be a bit tricky, so you might want to make a practice one first. Press before attaching the pieces.

    I’m a little confused. When making the dress, do I cut two of the large pieces? That seems the logical thing to do, but I thought I’d check. I don’t see a seam line through the front of the dress.

    I think I see what you mean, Linda… I was under the impression that the “front center (fold here)” was referring to folding the fabric, somehow, and I didn’t see how that long V fabric could possibly be a dress, haha. I think I’ve folded it the right way now, and I’ll be testing it very shortly. Thanks for the clarification!

    This pattern doesn’t make sense to me!

    Do you cut 4 of those sleeves? And two of the large pieces?!

    I’m so confused!

    Hi Rebecca – The dress is not lined, so no. Two sleeves and just one large piece that make up the body.

      I still don’t understand how you get the y shape though!

      I only seem to have half a dress!

      1. linda

        Hi Rebecca – if you don’t fold the fabric, then yep, you only get half a dress. Cut the paper out as is, fold your fabric in half, and line up the center front of the paper pattern to the edge of the fold, pin & cut out the “half-Y” shape. When you’re done, unfold it and you should have a Y-shape. Hope that helps!

    […] that Jan is wearing is gorgeous, I think I could achieve this dress by editing the collar on the All Spruced Up […]
