Sew a gorgeous woven dress for all seasons with the Pippa Dress sewing pattern!
The Pippa Dress features an asymmetrical design with a line of buttons going down the front. These are just for decoration – no buttonholes needed – so you can have fun button-hunting, without worrying too much about the size. Use larger ones for a statement detail, or keep them small for a more delicate look. You could also leave the buttons off completely and catch-stitch the bodice instead.
Shaping is provided by bust darts on the front bodice and waist darts on the back bodice, to create a beautiful fitted silhouette. The dress closes with an invisible zip on the side, and the neckline is finished neatly with binding.
Pick between a mini, midi or maxi length and sew the skirt closed, or leave a sassy slit (perfect for the maxi version!). We’ve also given you three sleeve styles to choose from, so you can sew the Pippa Dress for any season: short, 3/4 length or a full-length bell sleeve with elastic at the hem.
Pippa needs a fabric with plenty of drape, like viscose or crepe, and she looks fabulous in both solids and prints.
