The Phoebe Dress sewing pattern is designed for advanced beginners and anyone new to sewing jersey.
The Phoebe Dress is designed to be colour-blocked, so for this pattern you will need two different weights of knit fabric. For the top you will need a lightweight knit with drape, such as viscose or cotton jersey. For the shoulders and skirt you’ll want something a little heavier, with a good structure. We recommend ponte di Roma, interlock knits and doubleknit. To find the perfect fabric, have a look our specially curated suggestions.
The Phoebe 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 PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
