Here it is, girl! The Margarita Dress is pure glamour! This is a stunning off-the-shoulder cocktail dress, perfect for parties, events and super hot dates. Make it in bright prints or metallics when you want some attention, or dark and bold colours when you want to accentuate your shape.

The Margarita has a flattering wrap around the bust and a firm-fitting princess cut. The dress closes with an invisible zipper, and features a slit at centre-back for ease of movement. Fit it to your body and it will give you a "spanx" effect, exaggerating your natural curves.

Skill Level: Intermediate.
This pattern is aimed at intermediate sewers. The construction is quite straightforward, and the instructions are very detailed, but beginners may find the invisible zipper, and working with knits a little challenging.
NOTE-- You do not need a serger or overlocker, as all main seams are straight stitched. Overlocking instructions are included for seam finishing only.

Material Requirements:
This pattern is designed for heavy knit fabrics with a medium level of stretch. Scuba Knit or Neoprene is ideal, but ponte or bonded/fused double knits are also suitable. It is important to use a thick fabric to achieve the flattering “spanx” effect of this garment.
You will need:
• 2m (2.2 yards) of knit fabric with a 144cm (55”) width.
• A 50cm invisible zipper and an invisible zipper foot.


• Sizes A-G (US 2-14, AUS & UK 6-16)
See the 'sizing guide' image for measurements.
(Plus sizes are not currently available for this garment but might be added if there is demand)


Immediately after checkout you will be able to download the zipped pattern. This file includes:

• A Copy Shop PDF: 1 x A0 pages to print at your local print shop (ie. Kinkos, Officeworks)

I made this for a wedding and felt like a million bucks! You have to use a decently thick fabric, but if you do, the result is spectacular. I will be back! Thanks Lady of Leisure (LOL?)

I used this cape pattern as a base for making myself a period cloak. I lengthened the back and left the slits open.

Great pattern for a beginner. This was my first apparel project and I found the instructions very easy to follow. The only reason this project ended up hard for me was because I tried to add a lining, which isn't part of the pattern.
