This is the Ladies FREE VERSION of the Portia Party Dress. It’s a quick, easy and beautiful sew!

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 and in either woven or knit fabric with many more options.

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.

    Made my own for Christmas. Less 4″ in skirt, less 3″ in sleeves. Adjustment for a big bust and butt shelf rack. So easy, so nice. Loved it.
