    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.

    Nikau Dress

    I loved this pattern and thought the instructions were very easy to follow and with well detailed finishes. I chose the option without a belt and was hoping you might give me a tip on how to fix the bubble it creates at the back.

    Great Summer Dress

    I made a wearable muslin of this pattern (sleeveless version) using a printed fabric. It went together so quickly! The pattern was easy to adjust for petite alteration. I am planning to sew anothe one using a solid linen to show off the nice details like upper back pleat, front V opening and belt more accurately. Perfect for all skill levels!

    Love the Puffed Sleeves

    I love this dress! The versatility of the different sleeve and belt options means I have already made 3 different dresses!
