Lulu Dress PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £11.50


Inspired by Lisa’s love of 1960’s fashion, Lulu is a loose-fitting, slightly A-line shift dress and top with two sleeve lengths. With two-piece raglan sleeves, a pretty gathered neckline and lovely keyhole detail, Lulu is a quick project encompassing lots of interesting features, perfect for confident beginner sewers wanting to grow their skills. Snug only at the shoulders, Lulu is simple to fit and makes a comfy and very forgiving dress – perfect year-round.

Ever adaptable, Lulu can be made in a range of different fabrics to achieve totally different looks. Sewn in cotton she makes the ideal companion to a summer barbecue or day at the park, whereas in crepe or georgette she can become a slinky party dress. Play around with fabric combinations: try an opaque black rayon for the body with long, sheer sleeves in chiffon for a striking evening look. Lulu could also be worn as a tunic over leggings for an easy everyday ensemble.

Lulu has no zips, and instead closes with a single button at the front neckline. Simple and quick to make, Lulu is sure to become a wardrobe workhorse.

Sewing Level
The Lulu Dress sewing pattern is suitable for a Confident Beginner.

Fabric Suggestions
For the Lulu Dress we recommend lightweight woven fabrics such as cotton poplin, lawn, quilting cotton, chambray, linen, and twill. If you’re feeling more adventurous try a fabric with more drape such as rayon, georgette or light to medium weight crepe.

Fabric Requirements
The Lulu Dress sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
  • fully-photographed printable instruction booklet
  • copyshop permission letter

The Lulu Dress pattern is either 28 A4/US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages.

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.

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.
