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'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!

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!
