Crosby bias dress

Bias cut midi length dress sewing pattern in US sizes 00-18


Crosby dartless bias dress is equally chic, effortless, and timeless. It’s suspended from thin spaghetti straps and gently skims your figure, falling to about mid-shin. Its simplicity makes it highly versatile with endless styling options: wear it with strappy sandals and a bold red lip for the evening, or keep it casual with sneakers and an oversized sweater. 

This style is designed to be slightly fitted at the bust, with ease at the waist and hip. The sample shown is made from a viscose acetate blend and is half lined. Model is 5’9” and is wearing size 4. Size up one size if you prefer a looser fit.

This pattern can be easily adjusted in length to suit your body proportions and preferences by following the notes on the pattern, made into a mini dress, a floor-length gown, or luxurious sleepwear. Designed to be interchangeable with Wooster Bias top necklines. All seam allowances are included.

Suggested fabrics: medium weight fabrics with very good drape without stretch, such as crepe, charmeuse, satin, and crepe de chine in silk, viscose/rayon, acetate blends as well as synthetic blends.
