MiY Collection Easy Pull-on Shift Dress Pattern

We have run out of stock for this item.

You're going to love this dress; it's so versatile and can be made in lots of different versions and fabrics. It is basically a loose fitting pull-on shift dress with no fastenings making it a brilliant first dressmaking project. There are 2 different finishes for the neck - a roll-over collar or simple bound boat neck, optional side seam pockets and optional tie belt. You can customise it further by making it with the optional pleats or just using the bodice to make a simple boxy top. It's cool worn on its own for summer and makes a great layering piece worn with long sleeved t-shirts and leggings for winter.

The pattern is multi-sized and printed on 80gsm white paper (not flimsy tracing paper). This is NOT a downloadable pdf pattern that you have to print and stick together yourself.

All 3 sizes are included in the pattern, see sizing for detailed measurements.

This pattern is suitable for almost any fabric, woven or knitted. It makes a more structured dress with a heavier fabric such as denim, or a summery more drapey version in single jersey or lightweight woven linen. You can even mix fabrics and make the bodice and skirt from different fabrics.

3 sizes are included in the pattern (S, M, L), see sizing for detailed measurements.

The finished dress turns out these measurements for each size:
BUST 96cm
WAIST 96cm
HIPS 98cm
