The Everyday Dress + Top is our idea of the perfect everyday dress and top. Pick between long or short puff sleeves and either a peplum for the top or a tiered midi skirt for the dress. Fitted on the shoulders then loose through the waist, this pattern is the ultimate comfortable, stylish everyday style.
The Everyday Dress + Top is suitable for intermediate sewists or ambitious beginners.
Every purchase comes with the full size range of UK sizes 6-34 with a chest measurement range of 79-149cm.
We will be holding another shoot for this pattern to include a range of body sizes, we just wanted to be able to launch the pattern quickly for you!

Upon purchase you will receive a download link with the pattern in both A4 (print at home) and A0 (copyshop) format, along with a PDF of the instruction booklet. Please note, we have separated the bodice/sleeves and the skirt/peplum into separate files, if you do not wish to print the skirt/peplum we have included a measurement chart for them instead. They are simple rectangles.
