Lou draped/asymmetric top and dress sewing pattern - PDF


Asymmetric draped top and dress sewing pattern. Four variations. 

Style description:

Minimum effort maximum results. Lou dress/top is so easy to make, but looks stylish and is so comfortable. The dress/top  features a boat neck, short or long dolman sleeves  and asymmetrically draped bodice that is fitted on the hip.
The bodice part is loose and roomy thanks to the asymmetric drapes that form diagonally from shoulder to waist and also on one side of the waist. There is no fixed place for these drapes. They are meant to drape naturally depending on the body type, fabric, sleeve position and how you like to wear.
The bodice extends to become an elbow length dolman sleeve on the versions A and C, while the B and D versions have long sleeves that are fitted below the elbow.

Lou dress must be the most versatile piece you can add to your wardrobe. You can dress it down with trainers for a casual look. Add some accessories and elegant shoes to make it a perfect work or evening wear.
The same goes for the top, which works great both with jeans and elegant culottes as an example.

Fabric recommendation:
Light to medium weight FOUR way stretch fabrics is ideal for this pattern. The fabric should stretch at least on the cross-grain. It is ideal if the fabric stretches both ways and also has a fluid drape. We recommend fabrics like single jersey, polyester, rayon, viscose and modal jersey fabrics or similar weight knit fabrics.
While solid colours show the beauty of the drapes, geometric prints and stripes create striking effect changing direction with each fold and twist of the Lou top and dress.

Skill level:
Beginner. It can't get easier than this. This is easier than a T-shirt!

Measurements and Seam allowances:
This pattern includes measurements in Metric and Imperial systems in all files. Seam allowances are 1cm (3/8") for all seams unless marked otherwise on the pattern for the particular seam or hem.
