Fernbird Dress & Top

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 

Size

A pull on dress or top, the Fernbird is feminine, fun and easy to wear. With bust darts and "grown on" sleeves, the key design features are the deep double frills and scooped rear hem. This is a throw-on-and-look-glam-in-a-second dress, so easily worn with sneakers or heels. 

SUMMER>Beautifully cool in rayon/viscose the dress and top is professionally finished with a simple neck facing.

WINTER> mid weight knits and woven blended wool suitings. This dress will work with almost any fabric, although it's a good idea to keep drape in mind. We recommend you use a light weight fabric for your winter frills (like contrasting rayon, cotton, chiffons & crepes).

>PATTERN FEATURES:

  • Deep double frill (fold under so no frill hem)
  • Scooped rear hem line (dress only) for dramatic effect and emphasized design.
  • V Neck and round neck options
  • Loose fitting and designed to sit mid knee (front) and mid calf (rear) - but easily adjustable
  • Sizes NZ/AU 6-22

>DIFFICULTY LEVEL:  Confident beginner ready for the next step. Easy Intermediate (2/5). No closures (zips or buttons). Skill learnt: Gathering frills.

>RECOMMENDED FABRIC:
Light to mid weight fabrics with a good drape. 
We highly recommended rayon/viscose for this pattern, but tencel, silk, cotton/silk and cotton/poly blends. Have fun contrasting the dress body with the frill fabric. We even had a play with a light weight cotton/metal fabric in  contrasting frill which looks great.

Easy and flattering pattern.

Loved the few pieces. Was easy to fit and sew. And easier to wear. Can’t wait to make it again.

Fun Frock

Once I figured out the length adjustments (I’m 5’3”, and I subtracted an inch at the adjustment line and took another 2 inches off the bottom), this came together quickly. I had one speed bump with the frill measurements, but Janine quickly came to the rescue. Will be back for more!

Fernbird dress

I'm so pleased with this dress - I've made two already and planning many more. The fit and hang of the dress is fantastic and really flattering. It was a very easy make with really clear instructions - and great having photographs to follow. I'm going to try one with straightened hem and no frill now, otherwise I'll be wearing same dress every day!!
