Aida Dress PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


Meet the Aida Dress, a beautiful woven dress pattern with a touch of vintage!

With a really interesting cut, Aida features a curved empire waist with gathers under the bust and a panelled skirt for a really flattering fit that skims the figure. The dress is finished with facings and an invisible zip at the back.

Choose between a simple sleeve or a gentle puff sleeve with a pretty faux cuff effect created with the shirring technique.

Aida looks really cute in the shorter length, just above the knee, and elegant and sophisticated in the longer length, below the knee. Great to wear with or without tights, she will carry you through winter into spring.

Use a light to medium weight fabric with plenty of drape. She looks fantastic in a print and a bright solid colour will really show off the style lines.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
