Buy the Hilo Dress sewing pattern from Friday Pattern Company. Hilo is a loose, flowy, boho style dress that is easy to sew. It is designed for knit fabrics with at least 10% stretch. There are two back options: a low, open back, or a bra-friendly version that comes to a slight V. Wear this dress with sandals and a floppy hat and you’ll feel like you’re on a tropical vacation, or layer it over a T-shirt for a great everyday look.

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?

What we think: This easy fitting dress is made with knit fabric, which means you’ll be comfy! The low open back is just gorgeous, and we can imagine ourselves on holiday sipping cocktails by the beach! Plus it comes with a bra-friendly option too – what’s not to love?

Suggested fabrics: Knit fabrics with at least 10% stretch. Knits with a bit of drape will give this dress an elegant look and feel. Jersey knits are also suitable and will give the dress slightly more structure.
