Check out the description below for fabric type suggestions & how to print a PDF pattern



Fabric suggestions:

Any light/medium weight woven fabric.

Use rayon, viscose or crepe for a very floaty dress or for a more formal version, you could use a satin/silk material. Another option is cotton lawn for a breathable summer dress that will be a bit easier to sew up than the drapey fabrics but still give you nice movement in the skirt.

Fabric requirements for 1.4m (55″) wide fabric:
Size Knee Length Maxi Length
Ava – Cara 2.5m
Dee – Gia 2.8m
Hana 3.9m
Ivy – Jane 3.9m
Kay – Mia 3.9m

Other materials:
40cm (16″) invisible (concealed) zip

High Bust: 31″ – 55″ (approx. UK 6 – 30)

Use your High Bust to get the best fit across your neckline and shoulders.

To get your High Bust measurement, measure around your body, directly under your underarms.

Fitting tips for larger busts/cup sizes: You would then do a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) only if your full bust measurement is in a higher size category to your high bust.

  • A4 (print at home) PDF – 36 pages
  • US Letter (print at home) PDF – 35 pages
  • A0 (copy shop) PDF – 2 pages
  • Pattern Instructions PDF

As soon as you’ve purchased the PDF pattern you will receive an email with the link to your PDFs and the instructions.

Please note: You will not receive any paper materials with this option, however, if you would prefer a physical copy click here to view the paper version.

A PDF pattern lets you print the pattern yourself (use A4/US Letter for this) or send to a copy shop(A0 size).

First of all, for print at home options, print only page 1 and check the box measures 10cm x 10cm. When you print the pattern, print at 100% (make sure it isn’t scaling). If this measurement is correct you can print the remaining pages. Assemble by cutting along the dotted lines & tape the pages together.

You can send (email or upload) your A0 file to a copy shop and they will print it for you on a large piece of paper similar to if you had bought the paper pattern.

Or, you can just buy a copyshop version from here and we will do the printing and posting for you.
