See ‘Size Chart’ tab above for fitting information.  We now also offer Custom-Fit Patterns.

Fitted bodice has dropped waistline, center-back zipper, and either front and back darts or princess seams. Sleeves have a slight puff at shoulder. A stiff under-skirt provides structure to create the solo dress’s distinctive skirt shape.

The 3rd Edition of the Guna Rince Solo Dress pattern is our most fashion-forward yet.  Improvements to sizing and proportions give the desired shape while creating a garment that moves and sits well on the dancer.  Our comprehensive instructions cover construction, pattern modification, and more.  Check out the Sewing Blog for more tips and tricks.

Each pattern comes with:
• Two bodice options (darts or princess seam)
• Seven skirt options
• Two necklines and and two optional collars (inc. the Rounded Collar, an Add-on in previous editions)
• Bloomers
• Instructions for creating a stiff cape in your desired shape
• Full instructions plus directions for drafting more design elements.
• Patterns include 4 sizes.
• Four ‘add-on’ patterns are sold separately:
The Embroidery Bodice
The Soft Capes
The Seven-Panel Skirts
The Slim Sleeve

We now sell dress stiffener!
