140 Flamenco Dress and Practice Skirt


Misses Extra Small to Extra Large.

This is the paper pattern.  For the PDF pattern, go here.

A sensational fashion for dancing or dress-up, with lavish flounces that move with flash. 

The Dress has princess seams for a semi-fitted silhouette; the princess seams start from the shoulders rather than the armholes to facilitate arm movement.  Flounced cap sleeves, V-neck front, scoop back neckline, and four layers of flounces attached to foundation tiers complete the garment.

The Skirt has back waist darts and raised waistline and up to three flounces.  Make it with all three flounces or just one flounce for a salsa-hot mini. Make simple-sew fabric Rose accessory to attached to dress or pin in hair. The skirt with one flounce also makes a great everyday skirt. 

Suggested fabrics: Silk or polyester douppioni, taffeta, faille; other fabrics with body and slight stiffness. For lightweight drapey fabrics, lightly interface flounces. For shorter everyday skirt you can use a rayon challis, wax cotton or even linen. These fabrics are not authentic to the Flamenco dress, but will work.
