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.
- 3.5m (4 yards) of 115cm (44”) width fabric,
- OR 2.5m (3 yards) of 150cm (58”) width fabric.
- 1 x hook-and-eye clasp,
- a rolled hem foot (or 2m length of Ban-Rol).

Immediately after checkout you will be able to download the zipped pattern. This file includes:

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.

I'm so pleased with how this turned out. The instructions were so clear and easy to follow. I did need to take it in quite a lot because the skirt was far too big. I also took a shortcut with the straps because they were impossible to turn inside out. Great for beginners!
