006- Adonis dress

Open Source - Zero Waste - Digital Sewing kit



Modular wrap dress with a belt that can be tied at the front or back.

This pattern is not conventional. 

It was designed in 2019 by Mylène L'Orguilloux @milan_avjc with the first intention to provide alternatives for home sewers to better optimize fabric consumption and reduce the waste usually produced when cutting a garment. It therefore results in a rectangle jigsaw-like pattern where all the pieces fit together without producing any fabric scraps.



This sewing pattern is suitable for intermediate sewers and above.

It comes with a sew-along video recorded in English - subtitles available in French and English.

Before downloading the digital kit, you can watch the video tutorial on youtube.



This digital kit is not size inclusive as it only comes in 8 sizes. To choose the one that will fit you best, please refer to the hips measurements below. Lucile (the model) is 171cm tall and wears a size T38.


We aim to revise this pattern and develop a wider size range. Hopefully this will be possible in 2022.

If you're interested in getting involved in pattern or fit testing, please get in touch.




Suggested fabric: This pattern has initially been designed for the use of linen fabric or fluid cotton. 

It is however possible to cut it in lighter fabric such has viscose or Tencel in order to add more fluidity in your silhouette.

Plain and patterned fabric are both possible.

If you want to use a patterned fabric there are a few elements to consider

◼ There are seams on the middle front and the middle back

◼ The pattern layout contains both straight grain and cross grain pieces.

◼ The pattern layout contains head to tail pieces.
