Make yourself a beautiful 1950’s inspired dress based on the style of Betty Draper!

With a fitted bodice and full circle skirt, Betty is super flattering for all figures, nipping you in at the waist and flaring out to create a beautiful silhouette. The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back, has facings around the neckline and armholes and a machine finished hem.

The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.

EXTRA! Make Bettys of all varieties with our Betty Dress Add-on Pack! The pack includes a 3/4 length sleeve plus v-neck and scoop neck variations. Buy the pattern and add-on together and save 10% with the Betty Dress Bundle.

Sewing Level

The Betty Dress is a confident beginner sewing pattern. We recommend you’ve made a couple of garments before and had a go at inserting an invisible zip.

Fabric Suggestions

The Betty Dress works beautifully in a variety of different fabrics, including light to medium weight cotton and cotton lawn, rayon, crepe and even lightweight wools.

Because of the nature of the circle skirt, we recommend avoiding any strong one-way directional prints.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

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.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
