The exclusive free patterns that come with Love Sewing are double stuffed pattern envelopes, so you get the full range of patterns to suit your size. We think this dress pattern will become a fast favourite, it's such a simple style but could be worn from work wear through to something for a special occasion, so flexible, for winter or summer and the long sleeveless version is perfect if you're looking for a sophisticated evening gown.
