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.

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.
