Buy the Kew Dress and Skirt sewing pattern from Nina Lee. Kew is a dreamy blend of vintage and contemporary elements inspired by the British summertime. Think picnics and garden parties, strawberries and cream, sometime sunshine and being beside the seaside…

Version 1 has a touch of 1940s tea dress, with ruched sleeves for those cooler days. Version 2 is hot-weather ready, with a strappy bodice and the option of on-trend cold-shoulder sleeves. Version 3 is a skirt adaptation, perfect for dressing up or down all year-round.

The skirt for all three versions features an elegant high-low hem which dips at the back. All three options close with a front button fastening, and are finished on the inside with facings.

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). 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?
