The Shift Dress Sewing Pattern


The added panel feature on the front skirt gives you the opportunity to get your creativity flowing with the multiple combination options of colour-blocking or mixing textiles.

For Summer, why not make the bottom out of a sheer panel for flirty fun? Or plan ahead for Winter and make The Shift Dress out of light-weight wool adding a contrasting pleather panel at the bottom. The options are endless, giving you a unique dress every time.

The other feature we’re totally in love with is the optional pockets! Who doesn’t need or love pockets in their favourite dress? The pockets on the shift dress are useful for making a more casual, daytime dress when you want to quickly stash your keys or phone away while on the go.

Look out for our Shift Dress Competition – To celebrate the launch of The Shift Dress we’re offering you the chance to win a bundle of Avid Seamstress patterns. We’ll be sharing all the juicy info on how to enter soon!
