Although very Parisian-inspired, wrap top VONDEL is named after the Vondelpark in Amsterdam - a park where I have spent countless, blissful hours biking, playing with my kids and relaxing on picnic blankets.
Wrap top + dress VONDEL is a feminine, easy-to-wear true wrap with a deep V neck and a long waist tie to close. VONDEL features a one-piece shoulder yoke with a curved center back and front and back gathers for shaping. With three sleeve length options - cuff, half-sleeve and 7/8-sleeve - as well as three lengths - top, short dress or midi dress - you can make a different VONDEL for every occasion. This pattern includes French seams, the burrito method and other creative techniques to achieve a beautiful clean finish. Thanks to detailed illustrated instruction, this is the perfect pattern to learn French seams or to up your sewing game!
This pattern was drafted for a B cup and approx. 168 cm or 5ft.6in. Step-by-step illustrated instructions guide you from start to finish on a standard sewing machine using French seams.
GENERAL INFO This is a computer drafted, print and cut, layered PDF pattern, printable in black/white or color. Both A0 and copyshop files are included in your purchase. The pattern includes all sizes, but the size views can be easily toggled on or off in order to print either all sizes or only the size(s) you want to make. Sizes are nested to facilitate grading between sizes.
SIZING halfmoon ATELIER patterns do not follow standard sizing charts. It is therefore important to choose your size based on your own measurements and the chart below rather than according to a typical ready-to-wear size. Final garment measurements of the top and dress are included in the pattern.
FABRIC Wrap top VONDEL has been designed for light- to mid-weight woven fabric with drape, such as double gauze, crepe, silk, Tencel, rayon, linen, shirting, voile, etc.
Because of all the different options between a top, short dress and midi dress, as well as different sleeve lengths, fabric requirements vary widely. A detailed list of fabric requirements for three different fabric widths is included in the pattern. The tables below are for 137 cm, or 54", wide fabric and assume that you will be making your own bias tape.
