Sonia Estepe’s newest release is fire!
Jessica is such a fun pattern, it has plenty of options, from cutie next door to va-va-voom.
It’s two dress options that can also be split into separates to mix and match to our heart’s content.
Jessica is a sophisticated and stylish bodycon dress, skirt, and top sewing pattern that offers the perfect balance of sexy and chic.
View A is the fancier, more sexy version, and View B is the more basic one. Both are great in their own right!
I opted to make View A top paired with the View B skirt.
I’m not gonna lie… this one has me feeling pretty good.
I put it on and was like: Wow, check me out! LOL
It’s an easy sew and depending on what options you choose, it’s lightning-fast to go from fabric to fab!
The wrap neckline fits so well, I love it so much!
I need to clarify that, that little wrinkle on the neckline is absolutely a user error. I added too much tension to the clear elastic and the fabric is too delicate to withstand it.
Talking about fabrics… I used bamboo and mesh for the top and scuba crepe for the skirt.
Another great feature of the pattern is that the back pieces are not on fold, but have a center seam for shaping for an even better bodycon fit.
As I said, Jessica is very versatile and allows us to make multiple different outfits, but you know me… I can’t help myself and my hacking ways. lol
So, here is a sleeveless version of the View A top:
I just folded and stitched the armscye because my fabric (ponte) is stable enough to hold its shape, but there are multiple ways you can choose to finish it:
- Add a band
- Add a lining to the back and do the burrito roll method.
I really really love this top as a tank!
I use the scraps I had left from my Pizzazz Cosplay to make the top and it’s perfect to wear with the Valerie skirt hack I made for it.
This skirt can also be easily done but just cutting a straight hemline on the View B skirt. Easy peasy!
Jessica is FREE at the moment with the purchase of any other pattern at Sonia Estep Designs, or for half off. It’s up to you! 😉
