This took awhile, right? The Tai Dress is one of the first SBCC patterns, but one of the few, that up until this point, was only available as a hard copy. It was just a lot of pages to print. No one likes to cut and tape a bajillion pages. We have better things to do.
But this was in need of an upgrade and with a little creative thinking I cut down on the pages necessary. The optional skirt lining took a lot of space. But maybe you need it maybe you don't. Now it is it's own separate file to download and print if needed.
Here are the final page counts:
XXS-L- 30 Pages
XXS-L Lining - 12 Pages
XL-3X- 36 Pages
XL-3X Lining- 18 Pages
The most exciting to me are the pockets. How do we live without pockets? These had to be part of the new addition.
Additionally, I wanted a different take on the neckline and have offered a scoop neck variation. Scoop necks seem to be the bane of petite fitting problems, but no worries here! This one is just right.
I really wished I could have added a sleeve. However, the shape of the bodice/armhole was just not conducive to this addition. A sleeveless dress has a different armhole shape then one with. Sure, I could do it, but it was not up to my fit standards.
Already own the Tai Dress pattern?
I don't want to leave anyone out. The new neckline version, pocket, and sewing directions are available as a separate download or hard copy. You can get access to the pieces you are missing without having to purchase a completely new pattern. From the product dropdown menu, just select the "Add On" that applies to you.
Of course we need to celebrate this finally happening. From June 9th- June 17th get 15% off (discount applied to product already. No code necessary). Get your today!
