THE FRACTAL DRESS PATTERN: BUNDLE + DESIGN CHOICES

The Fractal Dress Pattern was developed exclusively for our 2019 Build a Wardrobe program. When we were developing the pattern, we were drawn to the modern lines the pattern pieces create; they allow the endless opportunity to experiment with colors. Launching last month, the pattern has been popular with The School of Making community and many of you have already completed a basic garment.

Find details below for our “color block” designs to use as more project inspiration.

To make it easy, we’ve put together a bundle of pre-selected fabric colors to make the Fractal Crossover Top or Fractal Dress as imaged. Each bundle comes with enough fabric to make a single layer garment. Choose to add matching thread to complete your garment as shown. (Please note you will have plenty of thread left over to keep on hand in your studio for other projects.) If you have your own thread or want to use different colors, you can purchase Button Craft Thread here. We also offer free Resource downloads showing the cutting guides for the dress and the crossover top.

Below you will find a guide to match the fabric colors to your pattern pieces and the design choices for our Fractal Crossover Top and Fractal Dress.
