Sew Me Something - Cordelia Dress

Description

The Cordelia Jersey Dress or Tunic is simple and elegant with a clever little twist at the front empire seam and gentle gathers that fall gracefully down the front. The back skirt has darts to give a nipped-in shape, so it’s perfect for all shapes and sizes and will take you through all four seasons with ease.

Version 1 is sleeveless so perfect for the hot summer days to come. Alternatively you can layer it over your favourite T-shirt too.

Version 2 has straight, set-in sleeves that are 3/4 length, a little bit more covered up for cooler days. 

Version 3 has pretty flared short set-in sleeves that give a softness to the overall feel of the dress.

All versions can be made to the shorter length to create a versatile tunic.

SKILL LEVEL - Advanced Beginner 

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Light to medium weight Jersey Fabrics such as Single Jersey, Double Jersey or even a French Terry Jersey.

SUPPLIES

  • You will also need narrow 1/4 wide elastic and the correct needle for your fabric.
  • A twin needle on your machine gives a great finish to the hems too.
