This is our classic signature dress suitable for all seasons in a range of fabrics. We have now updated our most popular pattern to give you more variations.

You have the option of making this 3/4 sleeved, sleeveless and short sleeved, all with a button back opening. There is also a lengthen/shorten line so you can make it into a top.

We have also updated our instructions for better clarity.

This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 8 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm, unless otherwise stated. You will need 0.35M of fusible interfacing for the sleeveless version and 0.25M of fusible interfacing for the sleeved version both views.
