Whether you’ve RSVP’d to a wedding this fall or you’d just like to update your seasonal wardrobe, the Nyssa Dress free sewing pattern needs to be on your sewing list as summer comes to a close. Its full and flattering drape looks gorgeous in a variety of fabrics, making it the perfect transitional dress. Try a Mood Exclusive crepe for a version that can be easily dressed up or down, or follow our lead with a crushed velour that would look stunning at your next special occasion event!
All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 22.
For this Redux, I didn’t make any changes to the original pattern, but some other options for this project could included removing the sleeves for a more summertime look. You could also do the opposite and draft simple long sleeves to bring this dress into the warmer months.
Let me know in the comments if you have any other ideas for how to alter this pattern!
