The Alba Skirt is a fun-to-sew wrap skirt that sits on the waist, and features a high-low hem look. Fastening with ties, there are no tricky closures to contend with. Go high drama with a sassy ruffle frill around the hem, or keep it simple and classic - great for when you want your fabric to do the talking!

Style your Alba Skirt with wedges and the Siena or Ravello Tops, and you've got a summer look sorted! Choose a fabric with lots of drape to ensure maximum swish.

Ravello Top & Dress


Sew Over It - Ravello Dress

As easy to wear as it is to sew, Ravello is a wrap dress and top with four variations! Choose from maxi or knee-length for the dress, or hip-height or waisted for the top.

Ravello wraps across the front and features comfortable grown-on sleeves with cuffs, ties at the waist, and a gently curved hem.

Porto Jumpsuit & Trousers


Sew Over It - Porto Jumpsuit


Casual, cool and incredibly easy to wear, the Porto Jumpsuit is a holiday essential. An outfit-in-one, the loose-fitting bodice and trousers ensure you stay comfortable in the heat, whilst the elasticated channel nips you in at the waist without feeling restrictive. The bodice buttons to the waist, making the Porto Jumpsuit easy to pull on without the need for a zip!

If you're a pocket lover, Porto is right up your street, with patch pockets on the bodice, and in-seam ones in the trousers. The short sleeves are folded up and held in place with tabs, and the full collar and collar stand give a lovely finish to the neckline.

Love separates? The trousers variations features an on-the-waist waistband and same super comfy fit. Sew Porto in a lightweight woven fabric like viscose for ultimate breeziness!

Siena Dress, Top & Skirt

Sew Over It - Siena Dress

Possibly our favourite pattern in the eBook, Siena is a feminine sundress. Siena features a princess-seamed fitted bodice with a sweetheart neckline, your choice of skinny rouleaux or slightly wider straps, a button-up front with gathered skirt, patch pockets, and a shirred back panel on the bodice for easy fitting and comfort.

Siena also comes with the option to make it as a top and a skirt, perfect for pairing with your other Summer Dreaming makes! Sew your Siena in a cotton, or viscose, perfect to wear in the heat.

Sorrento Jacket

Sew Over It - Sorrento Jacket & Ravello Dress

The quintessential denim jacket, Sorrento is the classic workhorse piece. Sew this once and you'll love it for years to come! Designed to team beautifully with the rest of the collection, it's the ultimate throw-on when the evenings turn chilly.


Sew Over It - Sorrento Jacket & Siena Dress

With tonnes of classic details and a clever construction, Sorrento features a front and back yoke, chest pockets, collar, cuffs and waistband tabs, all finished with lines of topstitching which you can do in a contrasting or matching thread.

Stick to tradition with blue denim - or try something different with a canvas or a twill!

What is an eBook and who is it for?

An eBook is a digital book, designed to be viewed on a computer, laptop or tablet or mobile. Much like a PDF pattern, once your order is placed you will automatically receive your eBook, and all the patterns, by email. No waiting for the postman!

Level-wise, there's something for everyone in this collection, though most patterns fall in the intermediate range. However, with loads of variations, most of the patterns can be made simpler or more challenging depending on which version you choose. No matter what your level, all patterns come with with clear instructions and step-by-step illustrations, guiding you every inch of the way.

Can I buy a printed copy of the eBook?

The eBook itself is a digital-only product, but we can print the patterns for you on large A0 sheets.

Sew Over It - A0 Printing

If you don't like assembling your PDF patterns at home, choose to have the whole pattern collection printed in your size range (or both size ranges 6-20 and 18-30) from the Summer Dreaming eBook page, or order your choice of patterns separately using our A0 printing service.
