  • This pattern is not suitable for woven fabrics, including stretch woven fabrics.
  • TRIMS:

  • Bishop & Cropped Bishop Sleeve: 12mm (1/2") elastic. 
  • 6mm clear elastic to stabilise the gathering & waist. I recommend using Lastin - the frosted clear elastic. It is the least noticeable on Tier 1/2 join.
  • Note: you can also gather the traditional way if you prefer. In this case, you'll only need elastic for the waist. Woven elastic, knitted elastic, rubber or clear elastic can be use here (not braided elastic as it stretches out of shape).
  • Empire Line Dress: Take the bodice up for an Empire Line tiered dress. 
  • Peplum Top: Sew a peplum top by adding a shortened tier to the bodice hem.
  • Hoodie Dress: Sew a hoodie tiered dress by using the hood & neckline from one of our other patterns (eg. Yours Truly, the Unwind Jumper or the Lounge Dress)
  • Puff Sleeve Tiered Dress: Sew a puff sleeve tiered dress by using the puff sleeve pattern pieces in the Hello Gorgeous Top pattern.
