Free Pattern Hack: Dahlia with an Articulated Shoulder Seam
Sometimes the best hack is the simplest one. Dahlia is such a classic dress, it is hard to add to it without creating something that is too fussy. For this month’s pattern hack we decided to do something a bit different. Instead of showing you how to create a yoke, or change the silhouette of Dahlia, we wanted to offer a hack that would create fit solutions.
Dahlia is a classic dress with a fitted waist yoke and soft gathers that are very feminine. On broad shoulders, Dahlia’s wide vintage inspired neckline is gorgeous, but it can be challenging to fit on narrow shoulders. In this month’s pattern hack, we are showing you how to create an articulated shoulder seam to make your Dahlia super easy to fit. Many vintage garments feature this design detail. Despite the subtlety of this hack, it can add elegance to your Dahlia and help you achieve the perfect fit.
Don’t forget that through the end of the month you can get 20% off Dahlia when you use the code DAHLIAMONTH at check out!
