This reversible a-line dress sewing pattern is suitable from beginner sewing level. It’s completely reversible with buttons on both sides of the shoulders so it can be worn either way. You can also substitute snaps for the buttons if you’d rather not do the buttonholes. It also has plenty of room for embroidery, appliqué or decoration on the front or back.
With colour step-by-step photographs and detailed instructions it is suitable for every sewer from beginner to advanced. The sewing pattern can be printed as many times as you like so you can make a whole range of dresses in different fabrics if you wish to.
All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required… and no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at!
The PDF tutorial includes clear descriptive photos for every step, computer drawn printable pattern pieces for sizes newborn to 12 years, instructions on how to cut the pattern out and simple, step by step instructions to complete your dress.
The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want. There is also an A0 format (pattern pieces only) in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.
We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.
