The Pina Colada dress is basically a vacation. If a dress could also be a holiday, this is the one. The sleeves are a celebration, the A-line shape is a banana lounge, and the pockets are for smuggling pastries out of the breakfast buffet.
But it is also a dress. The Pina Colada dress features double-layered flounce sleeves, princess seams with hidden pockets, a back-neck opening, and interior bias binding at the neck.

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate.
Sewers will need a basic sewing vocabulary and a good understanding of their machine. The sleeves have rolled hems and the neckline is finished with bias binding. There are detailed instructions included.

Sizes Included: A-G (US 2-14, AUS/UK 6-18)
Check the 'Sizing Guide' in the pics for measurements.

Materials Required:
Designed for woven fabrics with a bit of crispness and body, like broadcloth, lawn or chambray.

- OR 2.5m (3 yards) of 150cm (58”) width fabric.

Love this! Instructions are so clear and the dress is so much fun. I haven't made the other patterns yet but I've read the instructions and I'm sure they'll be just as good.

Great instructions, easy to follow for a beginner like me. The first try, I accidentally printed the pdf "fit to page" and didn't realise until i'd done all the sewing and tried it on!!! It was huge! Won't make that mistake again! Second time i made it in a beautiful Rayon fabric. I made a size 16, but it was a little big. Third time, I made it in a size 14 in a cotton and i'm really happy with the result! A great, easy to follow pattern!
