Description

This simply lovely party dress is everything the name promises: prettiness for days! It has many options allowing you to dress it up for party season, or dress it down for more casual wearing (it does make a rather delightful sun dress!). The curved neckband, fitted bodice, and full skirt are a beautiful combination of style and comfort.

Closures are buttons or snaps at the shoulders and an invisible side zip. You have three length options (short, knee, and tea length), optional layers of netting or tulle to make it extra fancy, and an optional sash with bow for waist details.

All the cleverly-designed self-finishing seams means the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight.

Skill Level – Beginner to intermediate

Sizes – Pattern includes sizes XXS to 5XL.  See the size chart in the gallery above.

Options – Closures are buttons or snaps at the shoulders and an invisible side zip. You have three length options (short, knee, and tea length), optional layers of netting or tulle to make it extra fancy, and an optional sash with bow for waist details.

Fabrics – You will achieve best results with light- to medium-weight wovens for your main fabrics. Good examples are cotton, linen, and satin. If you use a very heavy fabric you may find some seams bulky and/or the fit a bit tighter than expected.

Lining:

Use a lightweight woven fabric for your lining.

Interfacing:

Your interfacing should be a lightweight interfacing.

Netting:

The netting layer is optional. There are two versions of the netting. Either ‘regular’ netting (the skirt will have a slight puff), or the full netting (very full and the skirt will look like there is a petticoat underneath). Both have a 2 inch overhang under the skirt and will be seen. You can use any type of netting or tulle.

Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. 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.

Support – Please join the Rebecca Page Sewing group should you require any assistance at any point throughout your RP sewing experience. This wonderful community of sewistas is friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to help!

    Not to be intimidated! It may seem extreme because of the gorgeous outcome, but the tutorial is fantastic and the each part of every step has multiple explanations. It is possible for a beginner to be pleased with the outcome of their dress when using this pattern.

  2. Rachel Pooch (verified owner)

    There are so many options, from skirt length, to fullness, to colour way options -with sash, contrast neckband, different bodice/skirt colour. Extremely versatile and suitable for many occasions. Perfect party dress for mummys and daughters.

    If you want casual/formal mommy & me dresses-this is the pattern to sew!

  4. Leanne Miller (verified owner)

    The instructions are very clear and easily understood. There are lots of options, contrast yokes, bodice, skirt, which I like. Everyone wants to get more for their money so having options for tulle and different options for layers of tulle is good. Not everyone wants to have layers that makes the dress more poofy. The finish is great which is often neglected.

    This is such a great pattern for matching mommy and me dresses! I’ve never made myself a dress and it was so much fun. I really loved the whole process. The tulle was fun. It can be as fancy or as casual as you want it to be depending on your fabric and underlining choice and the end result is so professional and beautiful.

    You will not be disappointed! It is the perfect go-to party dress. I loved how the inside is just as great as the outside. It makes me feel feminine and pretty.

  7. Nicole Remig (verified owner)

    This dress is so versatile. Dress it up with the netting and fabric choices or dress it down with a light floral in cotton. The modest and classy lines will make this a staple for years to come!

    Do it! You wont regret it!

    The tutorial is fabulous as usual full of details and I love that it appeals to the most advanced sewer with the cheat sheet and to every beguinner with the extensive tutorial. But by reading the whole tutorial I think everyone will learn something because it is filled with tips and tricks and everyone loves that! I think that sewing a party dress can be a little intimidating but the pattern is so well drafted and instructions so detailed I think everyone can succeed. Plus they can practice a few techniques by trying the child version before commiting to the adult one.
