Effie Shirt Dress Sewing Pattern
The hidden button placket on this chic, stylish and contemporary shirt dress gives Effie a clean, streamlined look which really lets your fabric do the talking.
No more stressing over your button choice, instead choose a fabulous print or a luscious plain fabric, and let it take centre stage!
|Recommended fabric||Medium/dress weight viscose/rayon, crepe, linen, cotton and chambray. Choose a lightweight or medium weight fusible interfacing suitable for your chosen fabric|
|Notions||All views: Small buttons (3/8″ – 1/2″ / 1-1.2cm). 10 buttons for the 6-20 size range, 11 for the 16-30 size range.|
View B: One pair of 1 1/2″ (3.8 cm) D-rings for the belt.
|Available pattern formats||PDF (Sizes 6-20 and 16-30).|
The PDF pattern files are available in Copyshop/A0 format (3x A0 pages for the 6-20 size range, 4x A0 pages for the 16-30 size range) or print at home/ A4/US letter format (40 pages for the 6-20 size range; 64 pages for the 16-30 size range).
This pattern is available in our 6-20 and 16-30 size ranges. Our size ranges are based on different body proportions and bust cup sizes, so if you fall into sizes 16-20, do compare the body measurements in each size range to find the best match for your measurements. Both size ranges are drafted for the same height of 5’6″ / 167cm.
Choose the pattern size for which the Bust measurement in the table is closest to your full bust measurement, then grade up or down between sizes to suit your waist and hip measurements.
PDF Sewing patterns
PDF sewing patterns are a convenient alternative to more traditional paper patterns. When you purchase a PDF file, you will be given access to download a set of PDF files including an instructions booklet and the pattern files. You can print the files at home, on A4 or US Letter sized paper, or you can send the Copyshop/A0 files to a printer (a “copyshop”). The printer will print out the files on large sheets and post them to you.
The pattern files are nested, so you can easily grade between sizes, and layered, so you can choose which size(s) you want to print.
