FABRIC

Light weight WOVEN fabrics with fluid DRAPE (the fabric falls nicely downward against the body as opposed to voluminous drape which billows out).
We highly recommend rayon, viscose, satin, chiffons & tencel. Silk chiffon, georgette or crepe works beautifully for occasion dressing.

Stay away from stiff tightly woven fabrics that do not drape (like denim, silk taffeta & suitings)

Refer product images for examples of fabric we've used.
Refer last product image for detailed fabric & haberdashery requirements.

DIFFICULTY

INTERMEDIATE

Learn how to sew a concave and convex curve (neck facing) and an innovative technique sewing the armholes.

The neck facing is finished with a curved "stitch-in-the-ditch" which is a llittle fiddly, however, hand sewing this will produce a professional finish and simplify the process.

SIZE & FITTING

The Flow dress & top have excessive ease as part of the core design. If you measure between the sizes on our size chart we recommend you size down.

The most relevant sizing consideration is the underarm. If you are large in the bust but slim in the arms we recommend you grade to a smaller size under the arm.

Our models measure as follows:
Lynley (red & green maxi lengths & top)- size UK/NZ10 (US6) - 179cm tall - A cup
Rachel (blue & white floral maxi)- size UK/NZ14 (US10) - 174cm tall - E cup
Inez (grey circle print maxi) - size UK/NZ22 (US18) - 174cm tall - E cup  

You can view our size chart here.

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 plus links to 2 online video tutorials

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. Further information for printing in large scale can be found in our Resources section here. 

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.

Love at first sight!!

As a beginner sewist, I am easily intimidated. However, when I saw how beautiful this dress is and how many ways it fits into my life, I was ready for any challenges. Thing is, there weren’t any!! An easy and satisfying sew. I’m already two blouses and two full length dresses in! You’re gonna love it

perfect for hot weather

Great summer dress- easy to sew and to wear. I made it mid length (not maxi) and I love that. I'm going to make this one again.

Feminine and Flowy

I love this simple feminine dress it feels like I’m not wearing anything and on hot summer days it’s fabulous. The fact I can throw it over my bikini after surfing, or dress it up to head out for the evening makes it a wonderful asset when I pack to head away for the weekend. Already have 2 in my wardrobe.

Fantastic Design; Perfect Flow

I loved sewing this dress. It truly went together seamlessly. The drape is perfect! The neckline finishes the dress beautifully. I love a maxi dress that feels elegant- this is it!!
