Tax included.

The Pōhutukawa Dress is a classic shift with clean, sophisticated design lines. This pattern includes short, mid, or long sleeves, a ruffled sleeve and hem, inseam pockets, and a waist tie. This style's versatility shines through in its variations. In the summer, go floaty and casual, and in the winter, sew long sleeves. Use woven cotton for a more structured look, or rayon for a more drapey silhouette.

This pattern includes a full color photo tutorial to walk you through the process of making sleeves, pockets, a waist tie, and ruffles. It will produce a professional finish while being suitable for beginners and sewists of all levels of experience. A pattern adjustment guide is included to help you make common adjustments.
