MAKALU is a 2 in 1 model, that is to say that with one pattern it is possible to make a top and/or a dress. It has been created with having in mind kimonos and batwing sleeves but without being any of them. Its style is very refine, simple and gives a minimalist chic.
The dress has elastics at the waist to fit it, as well as in-seam pockets. It stops at the knees, but it is very easy to lengthen or shorten it according to your size and desires.
The top is the short version of the dress, it is even simpler and faster to make since it has neither pockets nor elastic waistband. It doesn't require much fabric, so it is the opportunity to use your fabric stash.
It is a very easy to make model, it has no particular closure or difficulty, which is why it is 1/4 level and is perfect for false beginners.
It is possible to use a multitude of different fabrics for the top as well as for the dress. It must be taken into account that the stiffer the fabric, the straighter the sleeves will remain.
The sewing pattern has to be downloaded and printed at home. It contains one size with clear and easy instructions and illustrations to make it even easier to understand. Once ordered, you will receive a ZIP file with the pattern in English and French.
