Martha Dress PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


We’re willing the sun to appear with the Martha Dress!

Designed for wovens, Martha is perfect for summer fabrics like linen and cotton. She looks fabulous in ginghams, spots, plains, just about anything really! Depending on the fabric that you use, the Martha Dress could also double up for a stunning evening dress. She’d look effortlessly glam in a luxurious or bold print.

Fitted with darts, the Martha Dress bodice is designed to be a snug fit, with pleats leading into a dramatic long sash. The wrap over bodice allows you to cinch the waist in or leave it a little loose – whatever you prefer, and perfect for after picnic comfort! When sewing up Martha, you’ll have the choice of two skirt lengths; just below the knee or midi. Both work perfectly whether you’re throwing on your trusty white pumps, or dressing up in heels. The bias cut skirts also give you plenty of swishing potential.

The Martha Dress is finished with a centre back concealed zip, and pocket fans – this is one for you! The Martha Dress has in seam pockets to make her as functional as she is gorgeous.

Sewing Level
The Martha Dress is an Intermediate sewing pattern.

Why not sew your Martha along with us? Watch our sewalongs for the Martha Dress (Martha part 1 and Martha part 2) over on our YouTube channel.

Fabric Suggestions
We recommend medium weight woven fabrics for Martha, such as cotton poplin, sateen, linen, viscose linen blends, heavier viscose/viscose twills, stable seersuckers, chambray, stable crepes and brocade. Due to the bias cut skirt, we advise against choosing fabric with a strong directional print.

Fabric Requirements
The Martha Dress sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 6-30. The pattern is split into two different blocks, sizes 6-20 (B cup) and sizes 18-30 (D cup). 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, layered pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet

The Martha Dress pattern is either 44 A4/US letter pages or 3 A0 copyshop page (sizes 6-20), or 54 A4 pages, 55 US letter pages, or 3 A0 copyshop page (size 18-30).

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.
