Buy the Daphne Maxi Dress sewing pattern from Sewing Patterns by Masin. Inspired by the glamorous Regency dresses in the Netflix series Bridgerton, Daphne has a high empire waistline, is fitted over the bust, and features short puff sleeves and a long flowy skirt. This pattern is perfect for pattern hacking, as you can easily exchange the puff sleeves for straps or lengthen the puff sleeves to ¾ sleeves. It is also very easy to shorten the skirt to a midi or mini length or even to a peplum for a top. The options are endless.

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: To save paper, the pattern does not include pieces for the front and back skirt (simple rectangles). Instructions are provided for drawing the pieces directly onto your fabric.

Suggested fabrics: Light to midweight woven fabrics such as cotton, linen, viscose, silk.

Fabric requirements: If you work with patterned fabric, you might need more fabric to pattern match.

Main: 140 cm (55″) wide fabric: 2.15 – 2.9 m (2.35 – 3.2 yd).

Lining: 140 cm (55″) wide fabric: 0.65 m (0.7 yd).

Sizing: A – J with A/B/C, D/E/F and G/H/I cups (approx. UK 8 – 28, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

A note from the designer about bust cup options: Measure your bust and your underbust. The difference between the two numbers will tell which size is best suited for you (see chart in image gallery). If you are between cup sizes, the designer recommends sizing down as there is an elasticated panel at the back of the dress.

This pattern was drafted for a height of 160 – 170 cm (5’2″ – 5’6″).
