Description

What is a pattern add-on?
A ‘pattern add-on’ is an extra feature that is not included in the Solo Dress Pattern.  The Embroidery Bodice is compatible with 3rd Edition patterns only (contact us for older versions).  Add-ons are not included in the Solo Dress Pattern.

The Embroidery Bodice
With the increasing popularity of all-over embroidery, bodice darts can become a hinderance when they cut through beautiful designs.  Many dressmakers are turning to this style of shaping, which moves darts to more discrete locations while maintaining a fitted shape.

Front darts are horizontal instead of vertical, traveling slightly upwards into the lower armhole (only 3-5″ in length).  Back darts have been moved to the side, away from the center-back.  Pattern includes two pattern pieces and instructions.

Fit
The embroidery bodice has the same width measurements (bust waist, etc) as the standard bodice.  Compared to the standard bodice, it has a slightly more upright/chest-forward posture.  Bodice and dress lengths differ slightly from original pattern (1″ or less).
