Inspired by Lisa’s love of 1960’s fashion, Lulu is a loose-fitting, slightly A-line shift dress and top with two sleeve lengths. With two-piece raglan sleeves, a pretty gathered neckline and lovely keyhole detail, Lulu is a quick project encompassing lots of interesting features, perfect for confident beginner sewers wanting to grow their skills. Snug only at the shoulders, Lulu is simple to fit and makes a comfy and very forgiving dress – perfect year-round.

Ever adaptable, Lulu can be made in a range of different fabrics to achieve totally different looks. Sewn in cotton she makes the ideal companion to a summer barbecue or day at the park, whereas in crepe or georgette she can become a slinky party dress. Play around with fabric combinations: try an opaque black rayon for the body with long, sheer sleeves in chiffon for a striking evening look. Lulu could also be worn as a tunic over leggings for an easy everyday ensemble.

Lulu has no zips, and instead closes with a single button at the front neckline. Simple and quick to make, Lulu is sure to become a wardrobe workhorse.

Fabric Suggestions

For the Lulu Dress we recommend lightweight woven fabrics such as cotton poplin, lawn, quilting cotton, chambray, linen, and twill. If you’re feeling more adventurous try a fabric with more drape such as rayon, georgette or light to medium weight crepe.

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.
