Notes

Loose fitting knit mini dress with three quarter length sleeves and scoop neck.

Length from back of the neck to hemline is 32 in. You could easily make the dress longer if needed.

Remember to print without scaling and to match up each page with the corresponding notches.

Also this pattern is made for knit fabrics. Wovens won’t work as well in this application.

And as usual I included the finished garment measurements rather than body measurements for sizing. I always find it easier to pick a good size based on the finished product and you can figure out how much ease you want in your dress.

The dress is meant to be loose fitting but you could easily choose a smaller size for a more fitted garment.

Other ideas for this pattern using easy changes -

  • Shorten the sleeves and make it cap sleeved
  • Lengthen the hem and make it a maxi dress
  • Or shorten the hem and make it a regular t-shirt
  • Change the neckline from scoop neck to boat neck or v-neck
  • Add elastic for an instant cinched waist
  • Make it in a soft fabric and make it a nightgown
  • Make it in a sparkly metallic fabric for a night out on the town dress

And please, let me know if you have any questions, comments, critiques on the pattern. I’m continually trying to improve my patterns and I’d love all feedback!
