Taika is a timeless midi-length blouse dress with half sleeves and gathered sleeve openings. This lightly fitted shirt dress sewing pattern features a V-neck and a button closure.

The curved waist seam runs below the bust at the front, and the gathers at the bust and center back give volume and shape to the bodice, while the vertical seams of the skirt flatter and contour the body.

Suggested Fabrics

Choose a light or medium weight non-stretch shirting. Depending on the desired result, you can either opt for a drapey fabric, such as rayon or Tencel, or a less drapey one, for example lightweight cotton or linen shirting. This will result in less or more structured dresses.

Fabric Requirements

150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 240 – 320 cm (2 5/8 – 3 1/2 yd) // 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 295 – 455 cm (3 1/4 – 5 yd).

Sizing

UK 6 - 28 (approx. EU 32 – 56). Please check the size chart in the images and finished garment measurements. The pattern is drafted for a 172 cm (5’8″) tall person, so if like me you're on the shorter side of life you may need to take some off the bottom.

Notions

  • Fusible interfacing, 155 cm (1 5/8 yd)
  • 7 mm (1/4”) elastic, 55 cm (22”)
  • Small buttons, 9 pcs
