Sewing Pattern Tutorial: The Cuba Libre Dress

Light and dancing, impossible to resist the Cuba Libre dress! The pattern is available in an fiery open back version and a more demure closed back and bra compatible version. This dress pattern is as pretty as it is accessible when it comes to sewing. The waist is supported with a blousy effect on the front bust, while the back of the dress is elasticated, so no zip or buttonholes are required.

The front bust has a scooped neckline with a very feminine V neckline, and the butterfly sleeves are very comfortable to wear in summer.

The technical points covered in this video sewing tutorial are:

  • Sewing gathers
  • Placement of an elasticated waistband
  • Fitting sleeves
  • Sew a facing onto a V-neckline

Happy sewing!
