Closet Case Patterns - Nettie Dress and Bodysuit


The Nettie is a quick and easy to make wardrobe staple. Close fitting with high cut arms, she can be made into a knit dress OR a bodysuit. This pattern is infinitely customisable with a choice of 3 sleeve lengths, 2 neckline and 3 back variations.

Go modest with a bateau neckline or show off some skin with a scoop neck and low back version. The bodysuit variation has a low cut bum to prevent annoying panty lines, along with an optional snap crotch so you don't have to get naked to use the ladies' room. The leg and neck openings are finished with the same stretch fabric you'll use to make the bodice, so this is a budget conscious project you don't need any extra notions unless you're adding crotch snaps or a shelf bra.
