Ideal for evening wear, the sheath dress is a timeless must. Creating it yourself will ensure that it is the perfect model for you and that is why we have complied the technical file of the sheath dress with displaced princess seams and open neckline. Its precise written instructions and clear sketches for each step make it an easy process to follow. The starting point for the construction of the sheath dress with displaced princess seams (seams going from the armhole to the hem without passing through bust point) and open neckline (rounded neckline at the front for this example) is the bodice base pattern in a set of measurements predefined by you. The skirt part of the dress in this example is made narrower as it travels down to the hemline, pencil-skirt style. Using this base, other transformations are possible. A large selection of files can be used with this one: The technical file of the short sleeve base pattern The technical file of the glove sleeve The technical file of the leg-of-mutton sleeve.
