    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.

    Sizes: • '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.
