THE DRESS

The Flora Dress is a timeless classic that has already proved will never go out of style! Flora features a lined tank bodice with bust and waist darts and a fabulously full pleated circle skirt for maximum twirlage! Choose from a straight hem knee length skirt or a dipped high low hem, and three different shoulder strap options.

   

Flora is a multi-sized sewing pattern from UK 2-24 / US 00-20 (dressmakers' B cup*) and UK 16-38 / US 12-34 (dressmakers' D cup*).

*Please note - dressmaker's cup sizes have absolutely nothing in common with bra sizes! Dressmaker's cup sizes relate to the ratio between your high bust and full bust measurements, whereas your bra size relates to the ratio between your full bust and under bust measurements. A dressmaker's B cup indicates that the full bust that is 2" larger than the high bust, while a dressmaker's D cup indicates that the full bust that is 4" larger than the high bust.

Copyshop files (B cup): 2x A0 sheets

Copyshop files (D cup): 3x A0 sheets

Print at home files (B cup): Bodice: 9x A4/US letter, Skirt: 30x A4/US letter

Print at home files (D cup): Bodice: 14x A4/US letter, Skirt: 36x A4/US letter

Lightweight woven fabrics with a bit of body are ideal, such as viscose rayon, floaty silks and wool crepe. However, stable fabrics will work beautifully too such as quilting cotton, lawn, batiste, shirting, voile, linen and broderie Anglaise.

For our samples, we used a blue floral Viscose & white Viscose Marocain from Rainbow Fabrics and a green silk from Goldhawk Road (years ago!).
