The blazer dress is everywhere and it’s been catching on like wildfire! It’s been spotted on all your favorite celebrities and now you can download The Setaria Dress pattern for free! This double-breasted blazer dress is complete with a notched collar, flap pockets, and a sleek tailored fit. It’s the perfect garment to achieve a day to night look. I love the idea of wearing this dress as an actual blazer, but when worn as a dress you’re not left feeling pantless. It’s definitely a fashion-forward look worth attempting this Spring, and you can easily bring it into Summer by using a bright cotton twill or floral printed sateen. I can’t wait to hear how you plan to style your Setaria Dress!

For my Setaria dress, I used muslin as a base. I wanted to give my dress a little bit more structure. Muslin is normally used for draping and drafting patterns but it makes a really good underlining as well.
I like to work on my lining simultaneously so it’s ready to go!
As always, sew in your darts first and press them nicely. Then attach your backs together. Next, sew your back and fronts together with the side panels.
Before adding your facings, you can sew in your welt pockets. For a quick tips on sewing welt pockets, you can check out this helpful post as well!
Attach your facings and collar to the neck opening matching the shoulder seams. Make sure to press your notched collar nice and crisp.
Pin your undersleeve and upper sleeve together and stitch. Set in your sleeves and press for a nice finish.
With right sides of the fabric together, insert your lining pining along the facing and stitch all the way around. Make sure to leave a small opening on the bottom edge to turn the lining right side out.
Press the inside of the lining where your facing meet and press along the edge of the sleeve opening.
The last thing to do is align your buttons and sew in your buttonholes. And that’s it!
