Pippa Dress PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


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.

Sizing & Fabric Requirements

The Pippa Dress is sized between UK sizes 6-30 and 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.

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.
