Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing machine skills

Pattern Description:

The Allie Dress is a vintage inspired dress that plays with contrasting fabrics, patch pockets and a shirred back. This is a 6 page pattern for the bodice and waist band only. Try experimenting with a variety of skirts to adapt the Allie dress to suit your own style. I personally prefer the gathered circle skirt! Due to the elasticated shirred back it is a versatile one size pattern, however the instructions do give directions for altering the fitting further. The pattern for the patch pockets is available separatley. Download full instructions from
