Wear it long or short with multiple length options to complete a summer, winter or trans-seasonal look. You’ll look effortlessly stylish and chic in this gorgeous, flowy style.

It’s also super adaptable and can be designed for mini, knee, midi and maxi lengths. This makes it ideal to wear to all kinds of occasions – from parties and family gatherings to everyday wear, including a day at the beach, market or just around home.

  • Make a dress or skirt.
  • Fitted bodice.
  • Seam at the natural waist.
  • 3 Banded necklines - high, mid, low.
  • Roll neck option.

To make this even faster & easier, we’ve also included instructions on how to gather with elastic, including my recommendations on the best elastic to use. A video link is included.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN the Dream On Dress & the Every Day's A Weekend Dress (EDAW)?

  • Bodices: Dream On is fully fitted to the body. EDAW is easy fit.
  • Sleeveless: Dream On has a sleeveless option. EDAW doesn't.
  • Skirt: Dream On has skirt option. EDAW doesn't.
  • Maxi: Dream On includes maxi length. EDAW doesn't. Tier 1 is also slightly narrower on the Dream On too.
  • V-neck: EDAW has a v-neck. Dream On doesn't.
  • Size Range 4-30.
  • Includes ALL sizes.
  • Upper Bust Measurement 73-135cm (28.5-53").
  • View size chart here


  • Designed for 4-way stretch knit fabrics.
  • Horizontal stretch 25%+. Vertical stretch 15%+.
  • 2-way stretch knit fabrics with spandex, good recovery & vertical give can be used but please note that as the bodice is fitted, some 2-way stretch fabrics may sit higher on the body, particularly if they don't have spandex.

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: include Viscose or rayon elastane knits, Double brushed poly (DBP), Single brushed poly (SBP), Stretch knit crepe, Poly elastane knits, Cotton Lycra (recommend soft & not over 180gsm), Bamboo & Modal elastane knits, Cupro, ITY, Wool knits, Sweater knit, Hacci, DTY, Liverpool. 

This pattern is not suitable for woven fabrics, nor woven fabrics with stretch.

  • Click here to view maxi length & skirts. 


  • Bishop & Cropped Bishop Sleeve: 12mm (1/2") elastic. 
  • 6mm clear elastic to stabilise the gathering & waist. I recommend using Lastin - the frosted clear elastic. It is the least noticeable on Tier 1/2 join.

Note: you can also gather the traditional way if you prefer. In this case, you'll only need elastic for the waist. Woven elastic, knitted elastic, rubber or clear elastic can be use here (not braided elastic as it stretches out of shape).

I always enjoy your patterns. Great instructions always. I’m making three Easter dresses : )



So many options

I've made almost every length, gotta try a maxi one soon! Fantastic fit, and so many neck and sleeves options.

Go to Pattern throughout the year

The design is great, loads of options, great fit, quick and easy to make, instructions are excellent. This is my go to dress pattern formy daily life. You can make different styles for all seasons of the year. I cannot recommend this pattern enough. It's an absolutely bargain what you pay and what you get. My pattern is definitely payed off from all the times I've used it.
