This relaxed but stunning ladies dress pattern can be made in 4 lengths (maxi, midi, knee and a shorter above knee length) and in either woven or knit fabric.

This is the Ladies version in XXS to 5XL. It is also available in Child sizes newborn to 12 years and an 18 inch dolls version. Or get all sizes in a fantastic value bundle here!

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.

    A relatively straightforward sew.

    Jennifer Anne Reeves (verified owner)

    This is a great sew. It’s quick and gorgeous. It’s comfortable, but super easy to make dressy or casual, depending upon fabric choice. This pattern is a must.

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.
