WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. You can print this pattern at home on A4 or US letter-sized paper or take it to a print shop for large scale printing (AO size). *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.

Interesting dress

The instructions are clear and the sizing good as it fits well. I did go to Fed-Ex to get it printed in one piece, rather than tape hundreds together, it was well worth it. Will buy from Sewing Revival again.

Yes, I would definitely buy from you again.

The instructions were great! Really enjoyed sewing this pattern. Do plan to make it a second time. And maybe even a 3rd time. I think that my sister would love one also. Thank you.

Lovely dress

I made this in a linen fabric and it will definitely be a repeat creation. Easy to make, comfortable and accurate fit. I really love it and have received many compliments.

Perfect summer dress

I made this dress as soon as I received the pattern. I challenged myself to make it in 1 day and just managed to do it. Already cut the fabric for another one. So comfortable. Love it

The switchboard dress pattern

This is an easy, comfortable dress that I thought looked nice on me. I have made two dresses that went together easily and sewed up in no time.

stitchbird dress

I am pleased with the dress in the end but made 3 toiles in the process to get FBA and upper trunk shaping just right. Some tips on doing the FBA on this sort of sleeve would have been helpful. I am UK size 20-22, tall and with 38G bust. I also sewed the front pleat down as far as my bra band for a more flattering look on a large bust and also sewed the back pleat down for a few inches - again it gives a more shapely and refined look. I will make it again and do a forward shoulder adjustment. I've learnt a lot about fitting and adjusting patterns in the process.

Sew sew happy!

I don’t often sew for myself. It was a real treat buying this pattern and making the dress. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I have never done darts or pleats and both came out GREAT. I LOVE the dress. The shoulder seams (and thus neckline) shift back when wearing, I am going to do so trouble shooting to fix that. I might enlarge the pockets on the next one. And, yes, there is already fabric waiting for the next one!

Love my Stitchbird Dress

This is my first time using a pattern from The Sewing Revival. I found the whole experience from the pattern download to making the garment easy and very rewarding. I have had several compliments from friends on the new addition to my wardrobe. I most definitely will be purchasing more from The Sewing Revival. Thank you for designing interesting and innervating Patterns.

Love the dress but not the grouped sizings

This was my first dress in memory and I liked the modern styling. I think if I made it again I might make the pockets slightly differently as I prefer ones where you sew the pocket bags together. Plus points for this looking fab on everyone I've seen it in. Negative- why oh why do we have to choose a size range in this day and age? I forgot I would need to grade up for my hips and had to guess. A lot of companies give you all sizes and some even the sizing in both ranges as well if they do a curvy fit.

The Sewing Revival

Hi June, Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Stitchbird dress - and especially for adding photos of your make. It looks great! We sell our patterns in bundles of 4 sizes to minimize printing and paper costs. When all our sizes (NZ6-24)-are on the same print out, the smaller sizes end up wasting a lot of paper which can be avoided with bundling. 4 sizes still allows our customers to grade between sizes and in some cases, require less AO pages which is a significant cost saving. Kind regards, Janine

The stitchbird

The pattern was terrifically easy to follow, the sizing perfect for me. There is a lot of ease but that makes it a bit easier to get a great fit. I would also like to thank Janine for her help getting the correct pattern size in the beginning.Personalised service is hard to beat.

Lovely shape

I enjoyed making this in a white wrinkle linen. It has a lovely, flattering shape and the pleat detail adds interest, making it both an enjoyable sew and a stylish garment.

Lovely dress.

This was an easy make. The pattern instructions were very clear. Will definitely look at other patterns. The hardest part for me was organising to have the AO printing done.....but now I know!

Stitchbird dress

Instructions were great, clear and easy to follow. I would try another pattern from sewing revival, however, this pattern was too big. I chose the size off measurements from the pattern itself but its too big and because its very lose fitting it tends to hang a little like a hospital gown ;)
