Ep. 3 The Sia Dress by Marsha Style Patterns

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Episode Three of our Sewing Club Podcast. This time around, we're getting into the Sia Dress by Marsha Style Patterns. It's a bit more involved than what we've tackled before, with its invisible zipper and lining, but it's been a fun challenge to sink our teeth into.

 Here's the quick rundown:

Size: Small
Fabric: Collette Lilac checked linen from Sewing Gem
Sewing Label: A mix of Handmade Rainbow and Pink Hand

 

The Sia Dress packs in some really cool details - you can choose between short sleeves with ties or a mid-length puff sleeve, it's got side splits in the skirt, a low V neckline, front bust pleats, and a shaped waistband.

It's labelled as an intermediate pattern, but don't stress – the instructions are super clear. If you want to keep it simpler, there's also an option without the lining.

I decided to make a toile for the bodice, and I'm glad I did as I needed to tweak a few things to get it just right. If you're after a specific fit, taking this extra step is worth it. And if you're worried about the low v-neck, it's easy to adjust to make it higher, either by sewing or adding a hook and eye as per the pattern instructions.

I really like this dress and all its features, though it's a bit different from my usual style. Seeing Taree in hers I can see why the Sia dress is so popular. I definitely need to up my shorts and t-shirt game!
