Sewing Tutorial: Linen Off Shoulder Dress

MOCHNI.COM teamed up with PFAFF!

I created our first sewing tutorial – an Off-Shouder dress, made out of eco-friendly linen fabric, perfect for summer days. It was so much fun and super easy to sew this dress. I sew the dress with the PFAFF expression 3.5. This machine gives you so many opportunities as it is very simple to use. You can read the Tutorial in German on pfaffblog.de! If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments below.

Step 1:

  • Drape the fabric casually around your yourself and decide how long and wide you want your dress to be. Pay attantion to the straight grain. The straight grain should be in the lenght. Wrap the elastic around yourself over your bust and stretch it a little.

Step 11:

  • Repeat all steps with a smaller piece of fabric, which fits around your shoulders. As soon as you are finished with the second fabric, you can fix both center back points and center front points together with a pin and sew along with some stitchings.
