This pattern is for a beautiful, casual style jersey dress with side pockets. If you follow the instructions you will create a biodegradable compostable garment utilising 100% of your fabric. Yes! You will have no unnecessary fabric scraps left after you’ve completed this project!

This process is called zero waste fashion design – it integrates pattern cutting into the design process. Although it is not really new and has been applied widely in historical garments (such as kimonos, for example) in modern days it was reinvented and pioneered by a group of designers including – Timo Rissanen, Holy McQuillan, Maya Stabel, Juian Roberts and others. With this pattern I am offering you to dive into the world of zero waste fashion at your home and join the growing numbers of sewers who favour this innovative method of making clothes!

IMPORTANT: To create this dress you will need 2 metres of light to medium weight 100% wool or viscose jersey fabric 160/150cm wide. Cotton or other fibres would be ok, but wool or viscose are ideal as they drape really well, you need jersey that drapes well for this dress to look great. (Because it is zero waste pattern where every piece of fabric is used to cut the garment width is important!!! If your fabric is narrower you will not be able to cut all the pattern pieces!)

Originally the pattern was developed for 160cm wide fabric and it works as true zero waste pattern utilising all the fabric without any waste. As 160cm wide fabric is a less common width, the pattern has been adjusted for 150cm wide fabric. With this fabric width, you will have a tiny square of fabric left over for some sizes. You can use it as dishcloth. Wool is excellent for that purpose! 🙂

You can get light to medium weight 100% merino wool jersey 160/150cm wide from this store https://thefabricstoreonline.com They have beautiful range of colours!
