Corina Bodycon Dress Sewing Pattern Overview
If you're looking for a appreciative, form-fitting bodycon dress sewing pattern that's easy to sew and quick to put together, you've found it!
This bodycon dress is perfect as a casual dress for a summer night out on the town, or just a relaxed date with your favorite person. The boat neckline and midi length make it super flattering and cute, while the side slit adds some sass, allowing you to show off some skin without revealing too much.
If you choose a shinny fabric and make it as a party dress, keep your jewelry to the minimum. Otherwise, you can style a pair of bold and statement earrings to make your look feel grander. Put your hair in a low, sleek ponytail and layer a blazer or semi-formal coat over it.

How much fabric do you need for your diy bodycon dress pattern?
Below is a table listing the amount of fabric needed for each size, considering a standard 140- or 150-centimeter width. If you're making your dress out of a different width or pattern (stripes, plaids, etc.), you may need to adjust the placement of the pieces so they will fit correctly.
It's happened to all of us: you carefully measure and cut your pattern pieces, only to discover that your garment doesn't fit after it's finished. What gives?
Before cutting your pattern pieces, check the contraction of your chosen fabric. Just iron steam the fabric at the highest temperature recommended on its label.
Your garment will stay true to its sewn size and fit exactly as planned!
