The "BRUMER" dress is the result of a desire for everyday comfort. It is the ability of being well dressed and feminin, and yet having complete freedom of your movements. Adjusted at the waist thanks to a removable belt, this wrap dress drapes around your body in a structured way.
With a v neckline, the hemline falling above the knees and a lined back, the relaxed aspect of this dress is embellished by two round pockets, sewn onto the front.

what you'll need ?

To make the "BRUMER" dress, you will need the following things :
- a computer
- an A4 printer
- blank A4 paper
- scissors, - cellotape 
- a sewing machine
- an iron
- pins
- a measuring tape

which fabric ?

The "BRUMER" dress can be cut in many different fabrics (cotton, linen, viscose, polyester, tencel). Viscose and tencel will make a more fluid and confortable dress, whereas cotton will add a slight stiffness (this is better for beginners).
Before buying your fabric, refer to the chart underneath to know the length and width needed to cut out your pattern.
(The model measures 1m77 and is wearing a size 38)

*Minimum width : This measure is the minimum width of fabric that you will need to cut out your pattern. Unlike more conventionnel patterns, the zero waste patterns are designed for a specific width, covering all of the fabric. You will need to take in to account this factor when buying your fabric.
For example : If you are a 36, the fabric width should be at least 140cm. If you are a 42, it should be at least 148cm.

**Minimum length : This measure is the length of fabric you will need to cut out the dress. Depending on your height, or what you fancy day to day,
you can choose to add 5, 10 or 15cm to this length to make your dress longer than the original pattern (used for the photos)

supplies needed

To make the "BRUMER" dress, you will need the following supplies:
- cotton or polyester thread in the colour of your choice
- fusible interfacing to stiffen the belt (optional)
