Digital downoad of my sweetheart strapless bodice pattern to print out and make at home.
This is a really great pattern that forms the base to many cocktail dresses and structured tops. The pattern prints easily on 4 pages with one pattern piece per page so theres no sticking bits together.
Works really well in woven non stretch fabrics like cottons and satins. Simply add a gathered skirt and you have a dress!
The sweetheart bodice is a classic 1950s fitted design with a strapless fitted cut.
The pattern features princess cut panels, a full lining, bound edges and a open ended zip fastening at the back. We provide you with all the instructions to make your top to your size.
Number of pieces to print: 4 pieces over 4 pages, no sticking together pages. This is a digital file containing our graded pattern with colour coded sizing and instructions.
