FABRIC

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

This dress will work well in most light to mid weight fabrics. 
A fabric with soft drape will give a more elegant feel (rayon, tencel and viscose), whilst natural fabrics like linen and cotton will give a nice crisp cool dress for warmer months.
A light weight wool blend is a great winter option (refer the Pattern Hacks section of the instructions for how to lengthen the sleeve).

Our black/orange floral fabric sample dress is made up in a polyester. This (or rayon) is easy to sew with great results. The green satin polyester dress looks spectacular but note that this type of fabric is tricky to sew (very slippery) and is only recommended for more experienced sewers.

*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.

DIFFICULTY

Suitable for Confident Beginners/Intermediate sewers. This dress is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams. There are no zips or button holes and the style is a flexible (forgiving) design.

If you are an intermediate sewer you may like to use bias tape to finish the neck and CF edges rather than the neck facing provided.

SIZE & FITTING

The Peacock dress is a very flexible fitting garment. Because it wraps and ties either around your waist or at your waist, you can secure the front wherever it feels comfortable. There are no zips, buttons or darts.

Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer last image for size chart and international size comparisons) or refer the Size Chart for help if you need. 

Small - (NZ/AU/UK 6-8-10-12  | US 2-4-6-8)                   PAH pages=26 | AO pages=2

    WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

    2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)

    Easy peasy Peacock dress

    It was great to give this dress a go. I'm not a great sewer but doing the stitchbird dress gave me confidence to do this one. Comfortable fit, easy instruction for the download and sewing.

    Lovely garment

    A great pattern, easy to understand and very accurate. I haven't made a garment for a long time and this pattern was an easy process. I love the simple lines of the design.

    Peacock Dress

    pretty good. I'm a fairly new sewer and was referred to SR by a friend. dress turned out well (except for the neck but I know what I did wrong!) and I will confidently wear it to a wedding soon. once I got sewing I finished the dress in a day. looking forward to making it again with a perfect neckline

    Really like the final dress.

    Really love the fit of the dress! Turned out perfectly! 2 notes on the instructions. In the instructions the pictures only tell you to cut out 2 pocket pieces instead of four, which is needed for the two pockets. The instructions also say to overlock the edge of the main dress before sewing the dress together I think it’s better to sew the dress together then overlock

    Loved it

    Thanks for such a great website and tutorials. I'm just getting back into sewing and this dress was perfect. Smashed it out in a weekend in between other things. Have already decided on the next pattern to buy! Bring on the weekend.

    Great, easy pattern!

    The instructions were very clear. No problems at all. I love a basic wrap dress and I think I will make this one several times over. Very happy to have found your company I love all your practical, easy styles and I know they will all be staples for years ahead.
