Hi everyone,

I’m thrilled to share with you my latest video tutorial on how to sew a stunning midi dress with side pockets and corset back. This is a beautiful and versatile dress that you can wear for any occasion.

What is a Midi Dress?

A midi dress is a type of dress that rises above the ankles but falls below the knees, otherwise known as the mid-calf. There are various patterns and styles to choose from to fit your body shape and fashion preference. A midi dress is not the same as a maxi dress, which falls all the way down to the floor or the ankle.

How to Sew a Midi Dress with Pockets and Corset Back

In this video, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create your own pattern from scratch or adjust the existing one
  • Cut and sew the fabric pieces together
  • Add side pockets and a corset back to your dress
  • Style your dress with different shoes and accessories

Plus, I have a special bonus for you: a free PDF printable pattern that you can download and print at home. This pattern is designed to fit most body types and sizes, and it’s super easy to use.

French Curved Rulers

In this video, I’ll show you how to use French curved rulers to make this dress. French curved rulers are curved rulers used in sewing, fashion design and pattern making. They are used to make sewing patterns and to adapt existing curved lines on patterns such as armhole, neckline, waistline, and hip line.

French curved rulers help you create smooth and natural curves that fit your body shape and style. They also help you mark seam allowance and grading on your patterns.

I have a whole post on French curved rulers on my blog, where I explain what they are, how to use them, and what types of curves they have.

Plus, as a bonus for my readers and viewers, I have created 6 different French curved rulers that you can download and print for free. These rulers are based on the most common and useful curves for sewing and pattern making.

Styling Your Dress for Any Occasion

Now that you have your dress ready, you can have fun styling it for any occasion. Here are some ideas on how to accessorize your dress and create different looks:


  • For a casual day look, pair your dress with flats or sneakers, a denim jacket or a cardigan, and a tote bag or a backpack.
  • For a romantic date night look, pair your dress with heels or wedges, a leather jacket or a blazer, and a clutch or a crossbody bag.
  • For a formal event look, pair your dress with pumps or sandals, a faux fur coat or a shawl, and a statement necklace or earrings.

The possibilities are endless! You can mix and match different shoes, jackets, bags, and jewelry to create your own style.
