Meet our New Pattern, the Kitty Dress!

Released as a London class a couple of years ago, now with a fresh new look Kitty has finally made it onto our PDF pattern shelves!

Newly updated to be simpler to sew and more versatile to wear, the Kitty Dress is a button-down shirt dress with a huge variety of options. (Last time we counted there were ten!) With a vintage nod, all versions are feminine, fitted through the waist and oh so flattering.

Versions 2 and 4 feature a darted bodice with set-in sleeves and choice of beautiful shawl collar or notched collar. The darted bodice is finished neatly at the front with facings.

Versions 1 and 3 are fitted with princess seams and feature a sleeveless bodice with scooped shoulders. Choose between the shawl collar or notched collar, and between finishing the bodice with facings or a lining.

You can pair all bodices with a choice of panelled skirt or gathered skirt, with both options featuring in-seam pockets. All versions are cinched in at the waist with a waistband.

With buttons and two lovely collar options, the Kitty Dress is an intermediate level sewing pattern, perfect for those interested in learning new skills and techniques.
