The Atlas shirt dress video tutorial

The beautiful ATLAS is a shirt dress that you can wear all year round, it can be sewn in a dress version as a blouse with long sleeves or short sleeves.

It is the long-sleeved blouse version with the lovely pleated cuff detail that I have chosen to sew for you in this video tutorial as this version is the most technical.

The step by step will detail in particular:

  • The assembly of the pleats on the front bust
  • The polo-style button placket
  • The laying of the neck bias
  • Making pleated cuffs

When you're done, you'll be the queen of small pleats... Let's go for sewing ATLAS!

For this version, I used a viscose crepe from Cousette.

I have purchased the pattern from Andrea from beyond the pink door. Where would i find the finished garment measurements please?

Kind regards
