Our latest pattern – The Bondi Dress
Meet our first pattern for the new year – the Bondi Dress. If she looks a little familiar that’s because she is! Back in March 2016, we published this blog post showing you how to modify our Ruby Dress pattern. Since then, we’ve had SO many requests to release it as a stand-alone dress pattern that we finally decided to do just that but with further improvements.
The Bondi Dress is sleeveless and features a high neckline, cut-away armholes, bust darts and side pockets. There is a centre front and back seam and back yoke with neck opening. The gently flared hem is finished with a facing, as well as an optional fringe edging, and comes in two length options (longer length A and shorter length B).
Gabby’s yellow version (above – shortened by an extra 5 inches to suit her preference) is made up in our Golden Wheat Leon. The white one (below) is made up in our popular Pebble Wash linen with fringing in Linford White.
Named after Australia’s iconic Bondi Beach, this dress really is the perfect summer style. Think hot days, balmy nights and the perfect go-to wardrobe item for comfort and cool.
Suitable fabrics include medium weight linen or linen blends, cotton, medium weight silk or silk blends. The Bondi Dress is now available in Australian sizes 6-16. She’s currently available in PDF (print-at-home/print copy shop version) or, if you prefer, you can purchase the hard copy (for a limited time) online.
