Buy the Cléopâtre Dress and Top sewing pattern from I AM Patterns. I am Cléopâtre, a pleated dress and top. I am very comfortable to wear thanks to the pleated fabric which gives me a lot of ease. My neckline is inspired by Cleopatra’s neckpieces. The pleated fabric swings delicately from my neckline, and I feature American armholes. I am both very chic and easy to wear.

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

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50). Note for the PAPER pattern: The pattern pieces overlap, so you will need to trace the pattern. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the PDF version as the pieces do not overlap. 

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). 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). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics

Neckline yoke: Medium weight fabrics like poplin, wax, chambray.

Body: Pleated fabric. Pleated fabric is sold either in panels with vertical pleats (running parallel to the selvedge) or by the metre with horizontal pleats (running perpendicular to the selvedge). Fabric requirements and layouts are included for both types. Note this pattern is only suitable for pleated fabric – it doesn’t have enough ease for non-pleated fabric.
