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.

WOVEN fabrics : Most light to mid weight woven fabrics will suit this dress.
Linen, cotton and linen/cotton blends are highly recommended for this pattern.

*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.


(2/5) This is a perfect beginner pattern or first dress. No closures (zips or buttons). Skill learnt: In seam pockets and neck facings.


Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer last image for size chart and international size comparisons):

Small - (NZ/AU/UK 6-8-10-12  | US 2-4-6-8)                    Pages AO=1 | PAH=19
Medium - NZ/AU/UK 10-12-14-16  | US 6-8-10-12)          Pages AO=1 | PAH=19
Large - (NZ/AU/UK 14-16-18-20  | US 10-12-14-16)         Pages AO=1 | PAH=20
X-Large - (NZ/AU/UK 16-18-20-22  | US 12-14-16-18)     Pages AO=1 | PAH=22

This is a loose fitting garment. If you prefer it to be a little less "roomy" or you are "in between" sizes then we suggest you err on the smaller size. 


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.

    Bonjour j’aimerais que la communication soit aussi en français svp.

    J’aime bien ce patron, mais j’ai dû m’adapter à la façon de faire. Je croyais que je recevrais le patron par la poste.

    First time using PDF pattern. I enjoyed process and easy to print and assemble. Although used size for my measurement I think I would drop down a size next time, neck and s shoulders and sleeves too big. Added a band on bottom and sleeves (but cut most of the sleeve off as only wanted to elbow).
