Pattern Details

This relaxed but stunning dress pattern can be made in 4 lengths (maxi, midi, knee and a shorter above knee length), with 2 different back options (full open or partially closed), has an optional lining and can be made in either woven or knit fabric. The instructions are beginner friendly and the fit, beautiful.

This is the bundle with all sizes (Ladies XXS to 5XLChild sizes newborn to 12 years and a bonus FREE 18 inch dolls version).

The knit and woven versions each have slightly different instructions and pattern pieces. The knit version is more form fitting in its cut and just pulls on over the head. The woven version has more ease in the cut and has an invisible zipper in the side seam.

There are two styles to the back. You can either have it so the back is completely open to the waist, or stitched half way up the back and then open to the neck. The back then fastens with either a ribbon or a thread loop around a single button.

There is a lining option which is suitable for both knit and woven fabric. It lends itself perfectly to sheer fabrics, and lace or beaded overlays for that special look!

The ladies version is designed for a height of 5 foot 6 inches, with a C cup bust. There are lengthen/shorten lines on the pattern and detailed fitting advice is included. Our testers tried the pattern successfully from a B cup through to a J cup in 4 way knit fabric with no adjustments. For woven fabric we have tested a B cup through to a D cup with no adjustments. However as much of getting a good fit is dependent on body shape, please measure against the size chart, and make sure to read the fitting advice in the pattern and sew a muslin of the top portion to ensure you get a perfect for your specific body shape. You will find a size chart, finished garment measurements and yardage in the tabs above.

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.

Suitable for both knit or woven fabrics. Serger/overlocker optional but NOT required.

    I love the dress! I think it is a universally flattering silhouette. This will be lovely for a breezy summer dress as well in different fabrics. The fit is excellent, fitted without being clingy and smooths over problem areas.

    I don’t usually wear V neck due to my body shape. But the V neck of this dress completely changed my mind! It’s unbelievable that with just a few simple pattern pieces and I can make a flattering party dress! Love it so much.

    This dress is beautiful and works perfectly in a soft draped knit, and would work equally well in a drapey woven fabric. It can be dressed up or down and will be a wardrobe staple. It is easy to put together with very clear concise instructions.

    This dress hugs the curves and makes me feel like a goddess. The flow of the sleeves and the swing of the skirt make me feel amazing. I made a knit version and it went together so quickly. I think it is pretty neat that there are woven and knit options.

    This dress is a very quick sew, with minimal pattern pieces and seams. The results are quick, and really effective, for a no fuss, but still impressive outfit, you can’t look any further than this party dress.

    The Party Dress is a versatile, clean pattern that was easy to assemble. I love the drama of the open back. The design of this pattern allows you to take it from laid back to dazzling with a simple change in fabric choice! I made mine using a lightweight ghost crepe and modified to have a lace back and it is the perfect boho love affair.

    The party dress will make you feel like twirling! I made my party dress out of knit, but I love that wovens can be used as well. The open back adds a beautiful look and I love the flowy sleeves! Another beautiful pattern that I will use again!
