The Bellini Dress is a downloadable sewing pattern for a modern knit maxi dress, with splits at the sides. The Bellini has baseball-style raglan sleeves, a crew neckline and comes with options for both short and long sleeves.

It’s a great pattern for bold fabrics, colourblocking or neutrals. This easy-to-wear style is trans-seasonal and great for layering.

Skill Level:
These instructions are aimed at people who are beginners to sewing knits. You will need a basic sewing vocabulary and a good understanding of your sewing machine.


• 'Standard' Sizes A-G (US 2-14, AUS & UK 6-16)
See the 'sizing guide' image for measurements.


Sewing Machine Requirements:
• An overlocker (serger) threaded up for stretch knits is required for the main seams.
• A sewing machine with a ballpoint needle and a twin needle for the hems.

Material Requirements:
This pattern is designed for knitted fabrics with a minimum of 5% lycra or elastane. The fabric should have at least 20% stretch to allow the neckline to stretch over your head. Ribbing works especially well, and jersey, double jersey or interlock will also work.
Be sure to pre-shrink your fabrics, especially if you’re combining two fabrics.

You’ll Need...
• 2m (2.2 yards) of fabric with a width of 150cm (60”)
OR 2.5m (2.85 yards) of fabric with a width of 112cm (44”)

I just finished sewing this!!! The photo really isn’t doing it justice, but this is a GREAT pattern. This dress is one of those projects that comes together well and is so flattering that it makes me feel so clever AND beautiful! I can’t tell you how much I needed that. Thanks for the great pattern!

Very easy pattern and the result is flattering. I liked this method of inserting the zipper! It's way easier than others I've tried.
