2019 BUILD A WARDROBE: THE FRACTAL DRESS PATTERN

2019 marks the fourth time The School of Making welcomes the new year with an inaugural Build a Wardrobe pattern debut.

With its modern style and relaxed, yet tailored fit, The Fractal Dress is flattering to a full range of body types.

Made up of expertly designed panels, The Fractal Dress allows the maker the opportunity to experiment with color and to apply appliqué, stencil, and beading designs in a variety of unique ways that bring modern twists to traditional techniques.

The pattern itself includes three variations: The Fractal Top, The Fractal Dress, and The Fractal Crossover Top. Two sleeve options (short and elbow) carry the pattern through the seasons, while optional side-seam pockets add functionality to the dress. All pattern variations have the option of either a funnel or crew neckline.

    Thank you for showing the garments being worn. Much prefer the dress in the solid colour, it may be the contrast from light to dark in the colour block dress that I don’t care for, might appeal more to me with either light or dark contrast all the way through but thats my preference on my body type. Love the top variations – I can see me making these and using up small leftovers from other projects. Thank you for another fantastic pattern. Im just popping over to download

    I’ve always found the raglan sleeve cut quite unkind to my somewhat large breasts, they make me look like a tank across the chest & shoulders. Wish I could wear these as they look comfortable.

      Thank you for your comment, Corinne! Our pattern-maker, who has a similar body type, found that the seam lines seem to break up the space across the chest in a very flattering way so that the garment doesn’t leave you feeling overly large or like everything is on display. If you do take a chance on the style, please let us know how it fits you and any critiques you may have.
