Named is a family business started by sisters Saara and Laura in 2013 and remains a small, three-person company run by the founding pair, employing one person. “We started our own pattern brand out of a simple passion for making clothes and sustainable fashion. We wanted to create patterns that encourage and excite more people to try sewing their own clothes and challenge them to think about their own relationship to fashion and consuming fashion.”

The dress has a neck band, and a vent at the back hem to add room for movement. The armholes of a sleeveless dress are finished with a bias binding.

INSTRUCTIONS AND PATTERN INFORMATION
In addition to sewing instructions with diagrams, the instruction booklet also contains a size chart with measurement instructions, basic information on how to prepare your materials, mark your pieces and sew, as well as cutting plans for different sizes and fabric widths. The required amounts of fabric and other materials as well as the finished garment measurements are printed on the back cover of the package.
For all variations, use a drapey but sturdy jersey that stretches about 30 – 50%. The garment has quite a bit of volume, so make sure your jersey isn’t too stretchy and heavy, as it can lose its shape and change the proportions of the garment.
This pattern comes with plenty of ease. Choose your size according to the full bust measurement. The pattern is drafted for a 172 cm (5’8”) tall person.
