A Basic Dress is a dress that has been designed to be worn in its most basic form. It can be made with or without sleeves, it comes in different lengths and necklines, and the skirt may have an optional layer underneath for added volume. The pattern pieces are drafted so you can mix-and-match them however you like. You will find more information about this style of drafting here on my blog post How I Drafted My Patterns (scroll down to see all the info).

Basic Dress: Frequently asked questions

What types of Basic Dress are there and what determines a good product?

There are two types of Basic Dress. The first is the “Basic” dress which can be worn by both men and women, while the second type is called a “Formal” dress which only female characters may wear.

A good Basic Dress should be comfortable, easy to wear and care for. It should fit well without being too tight or too loose. The fabric must have a nice drape and feel soft against the skin but not clingy. And it has to look great on its own as well as with accessories.

Who should use a Basic Dress?

A Basic Dress is for anyone who wants a simple, comfortable dress that can be worn to work or play. It’s perfect for the girl on-the-go.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Basic Dress?

The Basic Dress is a great choice for any woman who wants to look and feel beautiful. It’s also the perfect dress if you want something that will make your body look slimmer, longer or curvier. You can wear it with heels, flats or sandals depending on what kind of event you are attending (or even just going out shopping).

Make sure you check out the fabric. You want something that will last, so going with cotton is always a good idea. Also make sure it fits well and has been sewn together properly. It should also be lined, as this adds to the durability of your dress.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Basic Dress?


The Basic Dress is a great way to get started with sewing. It’s simple, easy and quick to make. You can use it as your first dress or you can add embellishments like pockets, lace trimming etc.


The Basic Dress is very simple, and it’s not designed to be worn with a lot of accessories. It also doesn’t have any pockets or other storage space.
