Customer Questions and Answers


Hi, Is there any way to print the pattern in A0? I am a bit intimidated at the thought of joining all those pages!I would happily pay for an A0 version!

Can I use bias tape for neck and arm holes? If so, what adjustment to the pattern would be needed?

Amy • January 17, 2024

Yes, you can use bias tape to make a bias tape facing. Just remove any excess seam allowance from these areas.

Greetings! I'm assembling my pattern. I would love to blend a 4/6 top to fit my chest and shoulders with an 8/10 skirt to fit my hips. But it looks like there are no gathers on the skirt when it attaches to the bodice (they're matching). Should I gradually widen the bodice from the armpit down until it meets the 8/10 line at the bottom where it meets the skirt? Is there a better way? I have never tried to mix sizes before and I usually get a passable garment that is just a little too big on top. Thanks for your help.

Hello! Yes, when blending sizes it should be gradual and so that any matching pattern pieces are going to be the same size when seamed. So you will need to widen your pattern at the point where the bodice matches the skirt to ensure they fit together.

When i cut the paper pattern, i have to leave some centimeters more ?

Carolina • July 10, 2023

I'm not sure what you are referring to? If you are thinking seam allowance, then the seam allowances are all included in the pattern so you can cut the pattern along your desired size line.

Cute! What weight of linen was used in the featured photos of the dress?

Fawn • May 29, 2023

This is a now sold-out medium weight yarn dye linen. Unfortunately we don't have plans to restock this fabric, but our IL019 medium weight fabric is the weight match and comes in a very wide variety of colors.

is there a wide format version for professional printing?

I love this pattern

I started making this dress, but underestimated the amount of fabric needed if using a patterned fabric. That being said, I ended up making a top from the top to dress. I added a band (the belt) to the bottom to finish it. It is so cute and comfortable. I will post a picture of the top. I love the free patterns here and have purchased the Riva Pattern, but haven't used it yet. I will update my review when I finish the dress.

Nice, but cut the front edge on straight of grain

I made this dress from some nice linen and it's a lovely easy to wear summer dress. Generally the pattern went together very nicely. But I would recommend cutting the front bodice pieces so the front wrap edge is on the straight of grain (which is actually how the sample in the picture is cut), rather than on the bias. Cutting it as directed in the pattern ends up with the front edge on the bias and it stretches out significantly over time. If i made it again, I would also make it with in-seam pockets instead of patch pockets as they aren't that attractive if you have a plain fabric.

Penny • December 29, 2020

I ran out of material. My fault, but ended up with a cute top. Looking forward to making the dress soon.

Shelley • July 9, 2021

Love the dress a lot! Gracias! Thank you for the free pattern!

Belén • February 26, 2021

I added cuffed ( borrowed from the Augustina top) sleeves, and ditch the belt and belt loops. Thank you for the free pattern, and all the useful tutorials you share.
