Has a plain, scooped neckline and set in sleeves with a slight gather at the sleeve head.

Version 2:

Version 3:

Has the same scooped and gathered neckline as Version 2 but the sleeves are ¾ length bishop sleeves that end in a gathered binding.

The pockets are curved patch pockets with a little bit of gather to add some interest and finished off with a bound top edge. The dress finishes about 10cm above the knee.

Patterns in this section are PDF Patterns

PDF patterns are digital downloads of our patterns to print at home or take to your local print shop. The files will be delivered by email and include the instruction booklet. Remember to select your size option if the pattern comes in different size ranges.

Our Printing Service is available for most of our PDF patterns.

What is Printing Service?

When buying a PDF pattern you can opt to add our Printing Service and receive a pattern by post. We print with our large format printer - affectionately named 'Big Bertha' - on 60-80gsm paper, the same weight we use for all our patterns. Nice and sturdy to use but still easy to get a pin through.

Please note: when opting for Print Service you will receive the pattern only. If you would like a printed instruction booklet please buy a Paper Pattern.

A Note From Jules...

When deciding on sizing, we advise you to take the finished garment measurements into consideration (these are detailed at the back of your instruction booklet).

We also recommend creating a toile before cutting into your chosen fabrics for safe measure.

Happy sewing!
