The Meredith Dress is a Confident Beginner sewing pattern.
For the Meredith Dress we recommend choosing a light to medium weight knit fabric with lots of drape, such as viscose jersey, cotton jersey and lighter ponte di Roma. You’ll also need a length of clear elastic or stay tape, and a small piece of stretch interfacing. Depending on the weight of your fabric, you may want to stabilise the entire neckband with stretch interfacing.
The Meredith Dress comes in UK sizes 6-30. 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.
Size Chart 6-20
Size Chart 18-30
The downloadable pattern file contains:
- printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
- illustrated printable instruction booklet
- copyshop permission letter
The Meredith Dress pattern is either 45 A4 or US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages for sizes 6-20 and 52 A4 or US letter pages, or 3 A0 copyshop pages for sizes 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.
