Buy the Diana Playsuit and Dress sewing pattern from I AM Patterns. I am Diana, a playsuit or pleated dress. You can make me with short sleeves or sleeveless. In each of my versions, I feature a shawl collar and a double-breasted closure that finishes at the hip. The narrow bodice panels lengthen my silhouette. In the playsuit version, I have in-seam pockets. In the dress version, my pleated skirt starts from the hip. Depending on the fabrics used I can accompany you on relaxed outings or at dressed up parties.

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