As many of you have found, getting your dress just right depends on having a great pattern that is easy to adapt to the dancer, is easy to understand and is specialized for these dresses. The FeisDress Designs™ pattern has been designed by Susan Gowin to make construction easy.

Features include:

  • The sleeve/armhole provides a wider range of movement.
  • Full pattern pieces are accurately marked with seam allowances and notches.
  • Skirt and styling options include back reversed pleats, darted bodice, offset side seams.
  • Illustrated, 20-page instruction guide and a 4 page FAQ and tips insert.
  • Box pleat and knife pleat skirt options.
The detailed instructions cover everything from marking your pieces through how to set an industrial style zipper into the bodice as well as shaping as skirt hem and making pleats.
 

The purchaser is automatically granted unlimited use of the pattern. It isn’t intended for resale, but the purchaser can use it for multiple dancers without paying additional fees. This means that a school can invest in a set of patterns, available for use by all their dressmakers, customized to the school’s needs.

Susan says “The more time and effort spent preparing to sew pays off in easier, less frustrating and time-consuming sewing.” Well, now you can take advantage of the preparation that Susan (the perfectionist) has put into the perfect pattern.
