Sewing Level
The Ultimate Shift Dress pattern and Add-on Pack are aimed at Confident Beginners.

Fabric Suggestions
The Ultimate Shift Dress sewing pattern is extremely versatile when it comes to fabric. Most light or medium weight woven fabrics, such as cotton, linen, rayon, viscose, wool, crepe or even silk (if you’re feeling adventurous!) will work. Just remember that slippery fabrics are harder to sew!

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Ultimate Shift Dress and Add-on Pack are 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 pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format) in all sizes
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
  • copyshop permission letter

The Ultimate Shift Dress Add-on Pack pattern is either 21 A4/US letter pages or 1 A0 copyshop page (sizes 6-20), or 24 A4 pages, 26 US letter pages, or 2 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 Copyshop 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.

Layered PDF pattern
The Ultimate Shift Dress PDF pattern and Add-on Pack files are layered, meaning you can choose to print only the size(s) you need when printing at home. Find out more here.
