*** 2015 UPDATE – this updated version of the KISS Dress includes extra sizes (now includes size 6-8 as well as size 1-5), trim lines to make it as a tunic as well as a dress, no centre back seam and illustrations rather than photographs.

If you have previously purchased the KISS Dress as either a stand alone pattern or as part of One Thimble Issue 1 you can get this update for $2. Please contact me for details.

After purchase you will receive links to download both the old and the new version of this pattern. The old version has photographs for those who prefer them.


All through testing this dress was “The Modern Pillowcase Dress”, because that’s what it is, my take on an old favourite. But MPD is hardly a good name for a dress. Mr Fox renamed it the K.I.S.S dress and I like that much better! Once you’ve learnt to make bias binding your friend, this dress, like the original, will be a quick addition to your sewing repertoire.

This pattern was first included in (& is still available in) the first issue of One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine. This pattern includes both metric and imperial measurements.

This is a confident beginner level PDF pattern. After purchase you will receive an auto-sent email to your PayPal email address with a link to download the pattern. If you have any questions please send me an email ainsleefox [!at]

With much thanks to Katie for letting me use the image of her daughter on the cover. And to Kellie and Shelley from And Me Designs for letting me use these images of their daughters.

Made this for my granddaughters Christmas dress this year as it was a little different. The fit was great and she loved the twirl factor.

I absolutely love this pattern! I am a complete beginner and this is the first thing I have sewn. The instructions are so easy to follow - I just had to look up a couple of terms. My stitching is not great but despite that it looks fantastic and is much better quality than the nappy purses I’ve bought in the past.
