This is the Ladies FREE VERSION of the Portia Party Dress. It includes ONE length option (knee length), and pattern pieces & instructions for KNIT fabrics only. It’s a quick, easy and beautiful sew!

Note – This free version is not suitable for woven fabrics. If you wish you use woven fabrics, you will need to purchase the full version of the pattern.

The full version of the Portia Party Dress is available here (in Ladies, Childs, Dolls sizes or as a fantastic value bundle with all of them) and can be made in 4 lengths (maxi, midi, knee and a shorter above knee length) and in either woven or knit fabric. The full version also includes 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! It’s a fantastic sew with options galore and stunning results!

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.

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 the full version woven fabric option 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.

This Free version is suitable for one layer of knit fabrics only. Not suitable for woven fabrics. You will need to purchase the Full version if you would like to use woven fabrics and/or attach a lining. Serger/overlocker optional but NOT required.

PATTERN TESTING

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.
