Pattern Description:

This pattern was my first PDF pattern. Its still drawn by hand; you could call it Marina's 'Vintage Pattern'. :)
The fit is great and I shall be making quite a few for my impending summer holiday.

Every pattern I sell or offer for free has step by step video instructions, my newer ones also include photo instructions, which makes sewing so much easier.

Please visit for more patterns and inspirational projects.

This dress is high cut with the shoulder exposed which is a great look for the holidays.

The pattern comes as e-book (PDF) , so you just have to get yourself some great fabric,click on the link to the online lesson, which is free on You Tube and you are ready to go. I show you exactly how you can achieve this professional look.

The PDF is true to size, just cut the pattern out, attach the pattern pieces together, and you are good to go!

Have fun and keep and share your finished here on Craftsy.
