I had the idea to make a few tweaks and turn it into a dress perfect for the impending summer which I know is just around the corner.
So today is the day that I can finally release it as a FREE PDF download for you to print off and use for yourself.

So a few details about the pattern:
This is a 6 page pattern for the bodice and waistband sections of the Allie Dress. Try experimenting with a range of skirts to complete this dress to suit your own style from gathered to circle, pleated or a-line.
The sketch shows the original plans for the pattern, without the center front bodice loop. You can see where this loop has been used on the photographs. This piece of the pattern is optional but recommended.
There are no fastenings to worry about as this dress uses elastic and shirring to stretch to the desired fitting. The garment modeled shows this dress comfortably fitting a bust of 39 and a waist of 32, with plenty of room to expand still. there are suggestions within the downloadable instructions for increasing or reducing the size of this pattern if required.
