Buy the Carnaby Dress sewing pattern from Nina Lee. A simple shift dress with in-seam pockets, Carnaby comes in two variations: with or without short sleeves. With separate skirt and bodice pieces, you can easily create a striking colour block effect, or keep it subtle with just a pop of contrast in the pockets. The dress is finished with neck facings and closes with an exposed zip at the centre back, complete with a simple zip guard. The instructions are comprehensive, so it doesn’t matter if you’ve never tackled an exposed zip before – you’ll enjoy it!

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50). This option is only available for sizes 6 – 20 (because the designer currently only prints this pattern in paper format for sizes 6 – 20). If you would like to purchase sizes 16 – 28, please select the copy shop option.

 – PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). Choose sizes 6 – 20 or sizes 16 – 28. What is a PDF?

 – PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). Choose sizes 6 – 20 or sizes 16 – 28. What is Copy Shop?
