    I’ve made 2 Belle dresses in quick succession. 1 as a toile and the second for my daughters wedding as mother of the bride.
    Both were relatively easy to make but I did need to use you tube as the instructions were not clear. They have some beautiful details to make the dress fit and feel comfortable to wear. Compliments have been plentiful. I do plan more.

    Love this dress. I cut a size 6 and it fit without alterations. It was very quick to sew and I will make more!

    (verified owner):

    The cut of the dress is fantastic and allows well for a larger bust, however, the instructions are poor. As an intermediate sewist, for such a complicated dress, two pages of instructions is insufficient and pictures would help so much with construction. It would also be nice to know how much to gather/shirr the fabric, even a mention of “gather this so that it is the same width as x”. Overall, I love my dress and will use the pattern again but disappointed with the rest.

    I have made 2 of these dresses and struggle with the same parts every time. On my third dress I realised that changing the order of the steps created a much better result.

    Love this pattern, though and the dresses are so comfy to wear.

    Dress is stunning. Pattern is exceptionally hard to read. Be prepared to read between the lines at every step.

    Loved the look of this dress and the pattern worked really well. Have made it in a muted yellow and white spot pattern and it looks good with a light blue denim jacket.

    I’m really happy with this lovely dress. I made it in a rayon print and used mother of pearl buttons. The V neck sits really well and does not gape, although the V looks low in the line drawings the overlap keeps everything covered. I joined the back bodice and skirt to the midriff piece before shirring and that was much easier. Thanks Style Arc, I love it

    Just finished a Belle in a Rayon. Came together well. The methods shown gave a very professional finish and I was very happy with the finished article. What I did have difficulties with was the shirring – my machine was not easy to adjust -is there a standard amount of gathering? 1eg: 12 inch fabric equals 6 gathered.

    I just finished my second Belle and want to make a third:). It’s both fun to sew and gorgeous to wear. Made zero alterations to the fit, which rarely happens. Worth every penny.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
