Heather Dress PDF Sewing Pattern


If you live in knits, the Heather Dress sewing pattern is for you!

Versatile and super comfy, the Heather Dress is sure to be a wardrobe staple. A gorgeously chic jersey dress, Heather can be smart as well as casual and will keep you looking put-together and fab wherever you are; at work, for dinner out or just at home.

The Heather Dress has cleverly concealed in-seam pockets (always a winner!) and a panelled bodice which makes fitting a dream. With opportunities for colour blocking you can really make Heather your own. Stay subtle in a solid fabric, go jazzy in a print, or go bold and mix the two to make a feature of the lines. There are three sleeve options to suit the seasons – choose from a short capped sleeve, 3/4 length or full length.

Sewing Level
The Heather Dress sewing pattern is designed for advanced beginner to intermediate jersey sewers, and those looking to progress from the Cowl Neck Dress or Ultimate Wrap Dress. With interesting details and construction the Heather Dress is a step up in your jersey-sewing adventure, but with fully-photographed, step-by-step instructions there’s no danger of getting stuck.

Fabric Suggestions
For the Heather Dress sewing pattern we recommend a medium weight knit fabric with a low stretch percentage, such as a ponte di roma, double knit jersey or interlock knits. Check out our specially curated fabrics on our online shop. Stable and substantial, these fabrics don’t wriggle around like lightweight jersey and are easy to sew. We recommend you use a ballpoint needle with jersey fabrics to avoid snagging your dress.

Fabric Requirements
The Heather Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a print-at-home PDF pattern? A print-at-home pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on your home printer. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, make sure you print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, and check that the square measures 10cm x 10cm. If you have never used a print-at-home sewing pattern before and would like some help, check out our Guide to Assembling PDF Patterns.

PLEASE NOTE the Heather Dress is a downloadable sewing pattern which you have to print at home or send to a copyshop. At the end of the checkout process you will receive an email with the link to your pattern and instructions. The files can be downloaded a maximum of three times, so please save them to your computer.

Happy sewing!
