Here it is, girl! The Margarita Dress is pure glamour! This is a stunning off-the-shoulder cocktail dress, perfect for parties, events and super hot dates. Make it in bright prints or metallics when you want some attention, or dark and bold colours when you want to accentuate your shape.
The Margarita has a flattering wrap around the bust and a firm-fitting princess cut. The dress closes with an invisible zipper, and features a slit at centre-back for ease of movement. Fit it to your body and it will give you a "spanx" effect, exaggerating your natural curves.
Skill Level: Intermediate
This pattern is aimed at intermediate sewers. The construction is quite straightforward, and the instructions are very detailed, but beginners may find the invisible zipper, and working with knits a little challenging.
Note: You do not need a serger or overlocker, as all main seams are straight stitched. Overlocking instructions are included for seam finishing only.
