I am happy to present my Pam Dress. This dress comes with a little story. Pam is my beloved cousin. There is only 6 months on age difference, so we grew up like sisters.
I have not seen her for 4 years and I missed her very much.She was always the pretty one; she was funny and sociable. You know, well-adjusted LOL.
She is one of these women with lots of curves, beautiful shapes. Like women from the 50’s. Something that these days is sooo underestimated.That is why I wanted to try to make a dress to honor her beauty.
I chose the fabric to be modern and funky, so it will give the dress a more contemporary look.
Pam dress adapts great to women figures. It is flattering to the curves and the length of the skirt makes the body looks longer, almost stoic.
I love my dress
As always, please share the link with your friends and family. I would really appreciate it.

This will be the layout of your pattern:
It will print 25 pages. Wait until all the pages are printed before taking them from the printer; it will make it easier to assemble.
When finish printing, place the pages as the layout below. Then use tape to put them together. Now cut the pieces.
Sometimes, there are problems with the printing process and the patterns come in the wrong size (a little bit smaller).
To avoid this, check the 1 inch square inside of the front bodice pattern. It will help you to see if the patterns are the correct size.

Some great ideas for your fabric here:
For 60” wide fabric: 1 3/4 to 2 yards
For 45” wide fabrics: sizes 4 to 12 will use 1 3/4 to 2 yards; for sizes 14 to 22 the total yardage should be 2 1/2 yards.
