Mashup:  Sweet as Pie and Well Rounded

Tie strap summer dresses are always a favorite.  Their wearing ease and simplicity lend a charm to any wardrobe.   I have two such styles, Sweet as Pie, and Love Pattern #9, but I’ve seen a few requests for a bit of a different style like this one from Well Dressed Wolf


This yoke is similar to Sweet as Pie, but overall, it’s taller and has a rounder bottom.  It turns out, it’s almost exactly the same as Well Rounded!

Here’s my version.

To get this look, you’ll need a straight edge, a drawing tool like a marker and both the Sweet as Pie and Well Rounded patterns from Duchess & Hare.  I’m offering them in a bundle to make it a bit cheaper for you.

To get this look, you’ll need to make some modifications to Well Rounded.  They’re fairly simple but I’ll walk you through them.

You want to start by drawing a straight line across the top of the yoke.  Make sure it’s perpendicular to the fold line.

Next, draw a line from the armscye up to the first line.  You’ll just eyeball this, but you want to try to follow the arm curve as best as you can.  You can see that I lined up my line so that it touched the armscye without going into it.  If this isn’t perfect, don’t sweat it.

Well Rounded has a lot of ease, so we’re going to take a bit out of of the bodice.  Draw a line to the left of the fold line 1/2″ away.  This will help keep the neckline from buckling when worn.

Trace out the new yoke and transfer your notch.  Since you’ve moved in on a curve, you’ll want to true the bottom corner.  To do this, draw a straight line out about 1/2″ and then draw the new curve in.  If you don’t true this corner, you’ll end up with a V shape in your yoke instead of a smooth curve.
Now that you have your new yoke piece, sew it up using the tutorial from Sweet as Pie!

I told you it was easy!
