How to build a pattern-base Dresses

To sew a dress that would be perfect sitting on your figure, you must have a good a pattern.

Build a pattern-based, with which you can create a variety of models can be your own.

You will need

  • - vatman-
  • - tape measure-
  • - lineyka-
  • - karandash-
  • - Scissors.



To build a good base pattern dressadjacent silhouette, you will need to remove and record the measurements: putting neck, putting his chest, putting the waist, putting the hips, back, waist-length, shoulder width, the height of the armhole back, shoulder height and the length of the trailing product. All values ​​are recorded in centimeters.


Draw back the pattern.

On the left side of the drawing paper to draw a right angle. Mark the top corner point A. From this point aside down: the height of the armhole bushel rear minus one centimeter (point D), the length of the yardstick of the back to the waist minus one centimeter (point T), Product measurements of length (H-point). Put down from the height of the point T the hips (20 cm for all sizes). Mark the point B. After point G, T, D and H draw horizontal lines. And aside from the point down 2.5 cm for all sizes (neck depth in the back). Mark point A1, and to the right of A set aside one-third of measurements putting the neck plus 5 mm (A2 point). Connect the dots A1 and A2 smooth line.

To make shoulders aside the right of the linepoint A yardstick shoulder width minus 5 mm (A3 point). From A3 lower it perpendicular to the length of the chest line (G1 point). From the point T perform an arc with a radius equal measure - shoulder height oblique. A point at the intersection with the segment A3G1 label letter P. Connect A3 and the point P.

To make an armhole aside to the right of point Ddivided by the value of the two measurements putting breast minus one centimeter (point T2). In order to draw the line armholes get a few more points. Put 0.15 segment G1P up from G1 (P1 point). Next 0.4 G1P segment (P2 point). From left aside P2 1.2 cm (point P3). Connect the P1, P2 and P3 smooth line.

To make the back side of the line aside fromT point to the right divided by the value of the two measurements putting the waist plus one centimeter (point T1). Then, to the right of point B, do the building divided into two value measurements putting the hips minus one centimeter (B1 point). Spend a perpendicular from the point B1 down. The point of intersection with the line of the bottom of the label H1. Now Apply for the sideline. Connect the dots T1 and T2 by a straight line, the point T1 and E1 - a smooth, and the points B1 and H1 - line.


Build a pattern forehand.
At the same sheet with the right side swipevertical line. Label the point of intersection with the horizontal lines. The top name in point, the intersection with the breast line - point T3, a waistline - T2, with the line of hips - B2 and the bottom line - H2.

Put the left of the point in width measurementsputting the neck, adding thereto 5 mm (B1 point). Aside from point B down to 7 cm (depth of the neck in front for all sizes), mark the point B2. Connect the dots B1 and B2, smooth line, processing neck forehand.

To set aside the shoulder line to the left of the point in the value equal to the segment AA3 (P4 point). From this point lower down the perpendicular segment equal to the segment A3P (point P5). Connect the dots and B1 P5.

For armhole left aside from the point T3 dividedtwo value measurements putting breast minus one centimeter (point mark T5). Further, aside from the top point of the segment T4 0.07 G4P5 (P6 point). Put the point T4 again 0.35 G4P5 segment (point mark P7). Put the right from this point of 2 cm and complete the armhole line connecting point T5, P6, P7 and P5 smooth line.

Side line shelves build in the same way as for the back.


Pattern-base dress ready. On it you can make a variety of dresses of thin or thick knitwear, knitted fabrics or stretch fabrics.
