Dress PDF Sewing Pattern (50ies Style)

Please note that the initial PDF file includes only the instructions and the zip file the patterns in both A4 and Letter size format.

The Vivienne is an absolute staple dress with plenty of options for creating stunning party dress and an every day dress. The bodice has princess seams for a snug fit. The sleeves have the option of sleeveless, cap and 3/4 length. The cuff comes either as integrated or separate cuff. The neckline is sweeping and beautifully cut with a Peter Pan collar or asymmetrical collar which completes the coveted 50's look. The back is fastened with a concealed zip.

The teen sizes are 14-20 with a slender and regular option. You can find your size by looking at the chart above. You may have noticed that the model in this listing is no teenager! This pattern fits ladies up to bust 99 cm /39" and waist 80 cm / 31.5", which is excellent news as I love this dress to bits and can wear it too! Its basically an XS-L too.

I am hoping this dress will help you finally get the perfect fit!

Each variation on the pattern also comes with video instructions which you can access any time on You Tube before you decide to purchase this pattern. Watch the introduction to the 'Vivienne Teen Dress' and get excited too.


Take your pick from all the options and enjoy making a fashionable dress for yourself. The detailed size chart for measurements and also finished dimensions makes it easy to find the right fit for you. And best of all all the kiddo videos and instructions work here too, so there is an abundance of options and fabric combinations.

Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit.
