The Ready To Party Dress - PREORDER


Our latest pattern, the Ready to Party Dress will soon be available as a paper pattern! Order yours today and it will be sent out to you as soon as it is published. We’re aiming to have everything ready early July.

We’ve designed the Ready to Party Dress to be your go to pattern for all events.  The pattern includes two neckline styles and two skirt options, which can be mix and matched to allow you to sew the party dress of your dreams.  

Both versions feature a low back neckline, princess seams, a fully lined bodice and delicate straps. 

Version one has a sweetheart neckline paired with a full, panelled skirt with darts at the waist, which falls to just below the knee for ultimate elegance.  We’ve also included those all important pockets!

Version two features a scooped neckline, showing of just enough décolletage, and a sexy wrap pencil skirt, with a back vent for walking.

Like all My Handmade Wardrobe Patterns, the Ready to Party Dress is drafted using real women’s modern measurements, and has been tested by women of all shapes and sizes.  

Your pattern pack will include:
- Full multi-size pattern to fit approx. UK size 8-22
- Full-colour instruction booklet with super-simple instructions and step by step photo guides

This pattern is ideal for people with some dressmaking experience who want to build on their skills.

The Ready to Party Dress is avalible in PDF format to download today!

It is vitally important, when sewing your own clothes, to take accurate measurements of your body, and not rely on the sizing you expect to buy on the high street. This is why we’ve switch out the usual sizes (eg, 8-22) for our own system of numbers 1-8. You have to measure yourself to pick your size!
