Introducing the Winifred dress!

Follow me and let me  introduce you properly to  Winifred:


The Winifred dress is the perfect everyday dress. Easy to sew and comfortable to wear this dress is designed for the beginner sewer. Featuring a front tuck darts that are designed to flatter the waistline as well as create a lovely flowing skirt. An elastic waistline on the back of the dress hug the curves as well eliminating the need for any closures, making it easy to just throw on the dress and get on with your day. Finishing off the Winifred dress is a cute belt design feature on the back of the dress.

Perfect for a range of fabrics and seasons, The Winifred dress will become your go to dress!

 View A - Featuring short kimono sleeves.

Design Features:

The elastic waistline on the back of the dress not only  hugs the curves but eliminates  the need for any closures, making it so easy to just throw on the dress and get on with your day. 
The cutest part about the Winifred dress and what i think really finishes off the dress is the belt design feature on the back of the dress, its super cute. Wrangle up some vintage slide buckles for an added bit of spesh to your Winifred dress.  

The skirt design of the dress also nicely skims over your hips  and the front tucks on the dress front are  flattering  in the way that they nip in at the small of your waist. It also loosely skims just over your hips but still with enough fit that you aren't completely lost in the skirt and have that 'I'm bigger than i actually am look', it actually creates the  maximum amount of  figure flattery for your curves.

Also including a flattering V neck collar to finish off the dress.



Beginners you'll love the Winifred dress with no closures to insert, the  dress sews up quickly and easily. A great pattern to practice your tried and true sewing skills as well possibly learning a few new techniques such as inserting an elastic casing and the elastic or creating the perfect V neck collar.  It is also easy dress to  fit with only your bust and waist measurements needed. A quick muslin of the bodice is all you’ll need before sewing this beauty up.


For both versions of the Winifred dress i recommend fabric's such as cotton and cotton blends, lawn, batiste, shirting, linen voile etc

 Bike friendly dress length 

The Winifred dress has been certifiably tested and has been given the A-OK with riding a bike!  The flowing fit of the  Winifred dress  allows for  little bit more extra flow and movement as well as the  length falling just above the knee not only for a feminine look but will keep your modesty in tact when on you bike, oh and also you want get trapped in your bike chain! 
 Also keep in mind  if you prefer the skirt longer or shorter  then  it's super easy to amend the pattern  to your preferred length.
