Main Fabric – The exterior of the dress can be made from nearly any medium-weight woven fabric. If you use a fabric that is stiffer, it will give the dress more structure.
OPTIONAL Lining Fabric – If you are lining the inside of the bodice, you will need a light to medium-weight woven fabric. If your main fabric is not too thick, you could also use this for the lining.
OPTIONAL Skirt Overlay Fabric – The overlay sits over the main skirt and should be sheer.

How do PDF/ digital patterns work? Simply download, print, and sew. You’ll need a free Adobe Acrobat reader program and any home printer (or a nearby copy shop for A0 printing). Once you’ve printed the pieces, tape or glue them together. You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the pattern instructions, plus support in our Facebook group.
The trim-free pattern comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes and includes full pattern pieces and a detailed tutorial to guide you every step of the way. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want/ need.
