Imke dress, two versions PDF sewing pattern

European: 158-46 International: Kids M-Womens XL USA: Juniors 5 – size 16 UK: Teens 13 – size 18

The IMKE dress comes with two silhouettes: a long maxi dress and a shorter balloon-hem dress. We have rated this pattern as requiring Intermediate skill levels as the bodice is lined. In our pictured examples, we sewed the maxi dress in viscose jersey and the balloon hem dress in cotton jersey. We had a lot of fun developing these two versions - one is an elegant and restrained, and the other is fresh and fun. As with all of our patterns, you have the chance to create something unique through your choice of fabrics. We hope you have a splendid time with your IMKE project!

Our German branch has developed a project tutorial video for IMKE. Regardless of language, the video includes some great visuals that you may enjoy reviewing as you sew your project.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Recommended Fabric: Cotton or viscose jersey

Notions: The balloon-hem version also requires a length of the elastic band.

Seam Allowance: The pattern includes 1cm (3/8") seam allowance
