The Komodo Triangle Dress is short and swingy, and so easy to make it can become addictive! The real joy of this pattern is that it only has one piece, and a mere three seams: it'll take you longer to choose the fabric than it will to sew it up!
The dress is cut on the bias and fitted through the chest and shoulders, sloping gently out to a flattering fullness at the hem.
Cut shorter for a swingy top or tunic. Or why not try one of our free pattern hacks:

The simple shape is just crying out for some statement fabric - a bold print, a laser cut-out or a striking colour. Any weight of fabric will work to different effect: stiffer fabrics will emphasise the cone-like shape, whilst lighter weights will give you more swish.
You will need 140cm/11/2 yards square of fabric. As this pattern is cut on the bias, take a look at the lay plan before you buy.
