Luana — Apron Dress Pattern

Luana is a vintage-inspired apron dress that screams summer! Reminiscent of country living, picnics and sea outings. With its bare back, soft pleats and gathers, it is both relaxed and feminine, showing just the right amount of skin. For this project, we chose our bestselling medium weight linen in this gorgeous clay color. Named after the red rocks of Sedona, it is true to its name!

Luana features adjustable straps that cross at the back, lined bib bodice, two large inseam pockets and softly gathered midi skirt. This pattern falls into the intermediate level category due to its complicated pocket construction. But this should not scare beginner sewists as we really go through every step with detailed explanations and lots of pictures.

I'm sure this a lovely dress but the download doesn't include the pattern. Just the first 5 pages?

Reviewer: Isabelle

I made this out of plaid wool and lined the bib, waistbands and straps with satin, to wear as a pinafore dress. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I only made one adjustment: I turned the pleats into darts. It turned out amazing!

Reviewer: sophia

I was able to make this in a day and it came out stunning! I'm so grateful for these patterns, I'm able to recreate my wardrobe slowly but surely. The only adjustment I made was making the skirt A-line but otherwise the fit is perfect. I also gave the bib a sating lining for comfort.
