Diana — Button Down Linen Pleated Dress
This cute little dress has it all: inferfaced neckline, button down front, sleeve cuffs, pleats and inseam pockets. Perfect for a warm day out at the park or beach. Visit the article on The Thread for step by step instructions for sewing.
Hi, When I opened this one, the PDF pattern was there but no instruction were. I don't always use the instructions but I like to have them just in case. Did I do something wrong when I downloaded it? Thank you
Hi! This pattern is in conjunction with a tutorial so that's where you will find the step by step sewing instructions. There should be a link on the 2nd page of the PDF to the tutorial, but just in case - here it is: https://blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/10/07/linen-button-down-pleated-dress-tutorial/
This pattern was accurate and easy to sew. I made it with a medium weight linen and I love how it turned out. Thank you for a great pattern!
This dress looks so comfortable! I couldn't find the fabric requirements though.
Good afternoon - some of the patterns are in conjunction with tutorials. There you will find fabric yardage and sewing instructions. The links to the tutorial are going to be on the 2nd page of the PDFs - just in case here is the link as well for this specific pattern - https://blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/10/07/linen-button-down-pleated-dress-tutorial/. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have other questions.
This is my favorite pattern! I've made it up in several colors and weights of linen, patterned and solid, and also in African wax cloth :). If you cut the length of the skirt piece in half, it's also a great swing blouse - I've made a few in lightweight linen and Liberty cotton. For a slightly more fitted version, tuck a little vertical dart under the bust, not from the side.
I didnt see a place where they tell how much fabric you might need for a particular size. since this is not cheap fabric i dont want to buy more than i need.
Made this today--it was lovely linen to work with and the pattern was super easy. We have super hot summers here in Arizona so this dress will be perfect.
Fun dress to make great for knocking about in the Texas Heat!
