The Comino Cap dress and top sewing pattern (for teens and women)- PDF
The Comino Cap Top and Dress offers four versatile views: a single piece cap sleeve top, a sweetheart-seamed two piece bodice top, a single pieced A-line dress with waist seam, and a sweetheart-seamed A-line dress. All options have a gentle scooped neckline with band and banded cap sleeves. Both Comino Cap Tops have a fitted upper bodice and bust before gently skimming over the waist and hips. The Comino Cap Dresses have a slightly more fitted waist, and a moderate A-line skirt that hits just at the knee. The sweetheart-seam options are really fun and playful- you can vamp it up with swanky prints for an evening look or have fun colour-blocking for a more casual affair. One of the best things about the Comino Cap Tops and Dresses (beyond how stylish they are obviously) is how little fabric they require! You can whip up a top in less than .75m ( .85yds), and a dress in only 1.25m (1.4yds ). The upper bodice panels for the sweetheart seams offer an even greater potential for precious fabric preservation- go ahead and use that uber-special fabric you’ve been hoarding for these bits as you only need a piece that’s roughly 25cm (.3yds) tall!
There are eight sizes included in the pattern, ranging from a 30” to 44” high bust, and a 24” to 38” high waist. You can find this information (as well as essential details such as line drawings and fabric requirements) in the third picture.
For a visual representation of swagger by my testers, see the fourth picture.
The pattern itself prints over 36 pages (for all four options- as much as possible I have grouped the pattern pieces for each View close together if you want to print just that) and the tutorial takes two streams: a full photo tutorial with hints and tips for visual learners and a shorter crib sheet for more experienced garment sewers.
This pattern is a PDF and not a paper pattern, you will need to print and assemble the pieces. An email is automatically generated and sent to your Paypal email after checkout.
