Pattern Details

This pattern was my second 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 frocksandfrolics.com for more patterns and inspirational projects. The Angelina sun dress is great for everyone with little time! Its quickly made and its cleverly cut so it doesn't need darts or a zip. It can be made in just an hour which is great news if you want something really quick. Using a complete facing to finish of necklines is probably the quickest way ever to get instant results. The pattern comes in the four sizes as e-book (PDF) as immediate download , so you just have to get yourself some great fabric, use the link to the online lesson below 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! Enjoy making a quick dress which can be endlessly adapted to make different styles and don't forget to leave your comments and projects, can't wait to see which fabulous neckline you come up with.

Sewing has always been my hobby and my profession. I first trained as a tailor as a young girl after which I worked for some fabulous designers. To fit work around my son I became a teacher of Textiles and Product Design. When my son finished school and moved to the USA I decided to start my own business and do what I love best; draft patterns and teach beginners and advanced sewers how to make their projects look professional. I hope you enjoy my patterns and instruction. Now we followed our boy to the US and I get to sew in the beautiful Californian sunshine!
