This is a digital PDF pattern. You will receive a link to download the files in your confirmation email after purchase; please note you will also need to purchase the Zadie Jumpsuit pattern for the additional bodice pieces. 
Available in sizes 6 - 28

The Zadie Dress is a relaxed and easy to wear one piece that comes with the option of 3/4 length sleeves, or sleeveless with a dropped shoulder. It wraps around the body and fastens with a tie so there is no need for buttons or a zip - making it quick and to easy sew, and quick and easy to get on and off.

There are inseam pockets on the skirt and small pleats at the waist on the front and back of the bodice. The neck edge is finished with a bias binding.

Please note that this is only the skirt element of the pattern. In order to use this pattern fully you will need to have purchased the Zadie Jumpsuit

You will learn to make your own bias binding and apply it to the neckline. You will also learn how to create an inseam pocket. The rest of the techniques are standard straight stitching and hemming.

This pattern was designed especially for woven, medium weight fabrics like cotton and linen and would look great in fabric that has a draped quality like crepe, viscose twill or satin. It would also make up well in some heavier fabrics like drill and light weight denim. It is possible to make this in Knit or stretch fabrics like Jersey but the binding technique around the neck is tricky in a stretch fabric so be warned that would take the difficulty degree up a few notches.

The pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner.

The files are separated into two size ranges 6-20 and 16-28. Both size ranges are included with your purchase.

Sizes 16/18/20 overlap between both size ranges so you can still grade up or down easily if you are on the edge of a size range.

Refer to sizing information for more details.
