Buy the Etoile Dress sewing pattern from French Poetry. The Etoile Dress is a flirty little number you can wear every day in the summer. It’s also a great choice for a date: a deep V-neck that shows just the right amount of cleavage and darts in front and back to define your silhouette. Cute details include front buttons and gathered short sleeves adorned with self-fabric ties.

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

– 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: Soft and flowy fabrics, such as silk crepe, viscose, polyester crepe, linen.

Fabric requirements: 60″ (152 cm) or 44″ (112 cm) wide fabric: 3 m for larger sizes (10 – 16); 2 – 2.5 m for smaller sizes. If necessary, you can reduce the fabric needed by cutting the sleeve ties on the straight grain.

Sizing: US 2 – 16 (approx. UK 6 – 16). Please check the size chart.

Notions: Matching thread; interfacing in the right weight for your fabric; buttons (the pattern calls for nine 12 mm buttons, but don’t hesitate to play with the number, position and width of buttons); strips of interfacing or organza to stabilise seams that are on the bias (to prevent any stretching of the neckline).

PDF pattern includes: Illustrated sewing instructions; A4 print-at-home pattern; US letter print-at-home pattern; A0 copy shop pattern.
