Sew Over It - Ultimate Shift Dress


Want to start dressmaking but don’t know where to begin? The Ultimate Shift Dress would make an ideal first project!

The pattern is designed with beginners in mind, and will guide you through the basics of dressmaking. Learn how to create bust darts and attach all-in-one facings like a pro. With no tricky zips or buttonholes to master, simply pop the dress on over your head and fasten with a hook and eye.

But don’t forget, with loads of options for customisation, including adding sleeves, sleeve frills and turning the dress into a top, there is plenty of scope for a more advanced dressmaker to play around and have fun!

Sewing Level

The Ultimate Shift Dress is a beginner level sewing pattern. No prior dressmaking is required.

Fabric Suggestions
The Ultimate Shift Dress is an extremely versatile pattern when it comes to fabric. Most light or medium weight woven fabrics, such as cotton, linen, rayon, viscose, wool, crepe or even silk (if you’re feeling adventurous!) will work. Just remember that slippery fabrics are harder to sew!

Fabric Requirements
The Ultimate Shift Dress sewing pattern comes in UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

The sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
