Buy the Ether Dress sewing pattern from Pattern Fantastique. The design of the Ether Dress was inspired by a light, puffy, cloud-like seersucker fabric. With its simple construction, maximising volume and texture, the Ether will make you feel like you are from another world.

The structure is anchored by a rope that ties off at the centre front split. The rope crosses at the centre back into a loop radiating gathers. The loop detail lowers the centre back volume for an elegant silhouette. The pattern includes two views, one with sleeves and one without. And yes, it has pockets!

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?

Note if purchasing copy shop printing: Some of the pattern pieces have been split (to fit on the A0 sheets) and will need to be joined together.

Suggested fabrics: The construction of the Ether is simplified for textured and speciality fabrics. If you are concerned about the rope casings or binding pieces being difficult to handle, use a plainer contrast fabric for these parts. The Ether works well in light to mid weight fabrics that gather well including silk, cotton and linen. Fabrics with a weight below 200 gsm and that compress well are advised.
