Hello Copen… (shift dress/top)

Say hello to Copen, a free dressmaking pattern for a simple shift dress or top. Download here: Copen Top & Dress.

Copen is a simple yet stylish shift dress or top. With a classic neckline, bust darts and optional waist darts, Copen is quick to make and easy to personalise. It is a great pattern for learning or practising essential dressmaking techniques such as how to sew darts and contour darts, insert an invisible zipper, introduce sleeves and attach a professional facing. Watch our YouTube tutorial for detailed step-by-step instructions.

We designed Copen to enable the development of pattern cutting and construction technique tutorials, so stay tuned for lots of fun and informative projects on our YouTube channel. This pattern features 3/4 length sleeves. Should you require a different length or wish to learn pattern cutting with our YouTube playlist, we recommend you purchase the add-on sleeve pattern.

In the meantime I would love to see what you make, please join us and share your makes on our Copen Facebook Group.
