New Pattern Release: The Bomdia Dress

Posted by Melanie Burns on

Summer is upon most of us in the northern hemisphere, and Greenstyle has officially released the hottest pattern of the season: The Bomdia Dress!

This dress is a super trendy side tie ruched dress that can go from day to evening in the pull of a string! Tie it up tighter for a shorter hem, or looser for a knee length dress. It has 3 different necklines and 3 different sleeve options, so you can make whatever look you want!

This pattern works best with a knit fabric with approximately 75% horizontal stretch and 25% vertical stretch, and it takes anywhere between 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 yards of fabric depending on what size and option you make. 

This dress comes in our B-M size chart, and covers from 30-61" bust, 22-57" waist, and 33-62" hip. If you're between sizes or want a tighter fit, size down. If your measurements fall into multiple sizes, grade between sizes, and of course, if you need any help or have any questions, come on over to our Facebook group and some incredibly helpful sewists will be more than happy to help you! 


This dress looks good on every single one of our testers, and we think you'll agree!
