Viola Dress & Blouse PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


Sew a vintage-inspired Dress or Blouse with the Viola PDF Sewing Pattern!

The Viola Dress & Blouse is the latest addition to our vintage collection, featuring a button up front, flat collar, gathers at the waist and shoulder, a lined back yoke, slightly dropped shoulder and a wide waistband. The pièce de résistance is the shirred panel at the back, which makes Viola comfortable to wear whilst giving you a beautiful fitted look.

Make Viola as a high-waist Blouse to pair with high-waisted bottoms like our Peggy Trousers or Ultimate Pencil Skirt, or sew yourself a beautiful Viola Dress. The midi skirt gathers into the waistband to mirror the bodice and closes with buttons down the front. And yes, it has pockets!

You can pick between two sleeve lengths for both versions: a short sleeve with a turn-up or a longer sleeve gathered into a cuff.
Choose fabrics with structure such as cotton poplin or chambray for a crisp Viola, something drapey like viscose or crepe for a softer look.

Sewing Level
The Viola Dress & Blouse is an Intermediate woven sewing pattern.

Fabric Suggestions
Light to medium weight fabric with structure such as cotton, cotton poplin, cotton lawn, cotton sateen, linen or chambray. You can also use viscoses and crepes for a softer version.

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Viola Dress & Blouse 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 (last 4 pictures in the gallery). 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.
