Supplies
Fabric - You can use nearly any light or medium weight woven fabric for this dress. However, your fabric choice will be critical in how the garments fits and moves so please choose with the end look you are wanting in mind. Recommended fabrics include:
  • A light to mid weight woven such as silk, rayon, silk crepe, crepe de chine or silk satin will drape and swish about you as you move more.
  • A woven with structure such as linen, poly cotton, or quilting cotton won't drape or follow the contours of the body as much, so it will give a boxier look. A garment with this type of fabric won't drape much and will stick out more.
  • A woven heavyweight fabric such as denim.
  • Knit fabric is also a good choice.
OPTIONAL Lining - If you are doing the pocket and/or neck facing options, you can cut these from either a lining fabric or your main fabric. If you choose to use a lining fabric, 1/4 yard of lining will suffice for all sizes. Suitable fabrics include Habotai (silk or polyester), poly anti-static lining, cotton, quilting cotton, and satin.
You will also need:
  • OPTIONAL - Iron on interfacing - You will need for the front and back facings if you are doing the facing option (not the binding option). 1/4 yard will be more than sufficient for sizes 1-10 and 1/2 yard for sizes 6C-15C. If you are using knit/stretch fabric, make sure to use knit/stretch-specific interfacing. If you are using woven fabric, use a medium weight woven interfacing.
  • OPTIONAL - If you are doing the neck binding option, you will need 1/2 inch wide single fold bias tape. You can use ready-made bias tape or you can make your own. If you are using ready-made bias tape, you will need stretch bias tape if you are using a knit fabric, and regular/normal woven bias tape if you are using woven fabrics.
  • Thread to match.

How do PDF/ digital patterns work? 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, tape or glue them together. You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the pattern instructions, plus support in our Facebook group.

The 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/ need.
