Buy the Kinjarling Dress sewing pattern from Waves & Wild. Kinjarling is a relaxed, pull-on woven dress. There are three lengths, two necklines, two neck finishes, two pocket choices and optional waist ties. There are no fiddly darts, zips or buttons. Its breezy, floaty feel makes Kinjarling perfect for casual summer days, or use a special fabric and team Kinjarling with a smart belt and heels for a night out!

Suggested fabricsLight/medium weight woven fabric. Fabrics with a good balance of structure and drape are ideal. Examples include cotton poplin, cotton lawn and linen. Fabrics with more drape such as rayon and some silks are beautiful but the end fit will be a little more relaxed. Stiffer/thicker fabrics will result in a more structured dress which can look fabulous. Soft fabrics such as double gauze or muslin will create a very relaxed, comfortable, casual dress.

Fabric requirements140 cm (55″) wide fabric: Below the knee length, 240 – 460 cm (2 5/8 – 5 yd) // Calf length, 270 – 460 cm (3 – 5 yd) // Maxi length, 300 – 460 cm (3 1/4 – 5 yd).

Sizes XXS – XL: The tie is not included in the yardage. If you are making a tie, you will need up to 100 cm (1 yd) extra.

Sizes XXL – 7XL: The yardage is the same for the tie and no-tie options. But the skirt for these sizes is wider than 140 cm (55″) so you will need to 1) source wider fabric, 2) turn your pattern piece 90 degrees (the yardage above is based on this option, but it may not be suitable for some fabrics), 3) create your skirt front and skirt back from two pieces, or 4) use a smaller skirt (as the skirt is very full with a lot of gathered fabric).

Sizing: XXS – 7XL (approx. UK 6 – 34/36, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart.

Notions: Scrap of lightweight interfacing for the pockets and neck facing.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4/legal/letter print-at-home pattern (48 pages); A0 copy shop pattern (3 sheets); projector pattern. This pattern has layers so you can print just the sizes(s) you need.
