You’ll need a medium-weight woven fabric for your Marilyn. A stiffer fabric will give you more structure, while a flowier one will give you drape. Some great suggestions are duchess satin, crepe satin, cotton drill, cotton lawn, taffeta, velvet.  (full fabric requirements in the gallery). You can sew this on a regular sewing machine or with an overlocker/ serger (overlocker/ serger optional). Your fabric choices will take you from sweet sundress to va-va-voom formal styling.

This dress is beautiful and flattering and surprisingly easy to construct. The hardest part is the pleats and there was a super helpful video! Would definitely recommend this pattern to anyone wanting to try out a woven pattern. – Alexandria Phillip

FAQs

I’ve never used a PDF pattern. How do they work? PDF patterns are super easy and you get them instantly! Once you’ve tried one, you’ll never go back. You 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, you then tape or glue the pages together like a super easy jigsaw! You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the PDF, plus support in our Facebook group.

This 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.

When will I get my patterns? You’ll receive a link to download your patterns immediately after purchase. If you haven’t received it, please check your spam/ junk folder. You can also access your patterns at any time via your ‘My Account’ area on the website.
