Mayfair Dress

Nina Lee



Buy the Mayfair Dress sewing pattern from Nina Lee. The Mayfair Dress is a jersey dream designed to carry you from office to cocktails, from beach to bar, or from sofa to fridge and back again (!) – it’s comfortable, elegant, supremely flattering and wonderfully versatile. With three sleeve lengths and a knee-length or maxi skirt option, this pattern has got all situations covered. Its relaxed fit and gently flowing lines create a winning combination of easy-to-wear and effortlessly stylish. Pair the maxi with sandals and a broad-brimmed hat in the summer; pair the knee-length with long sleeves and tights and boots to see you through the winter. Mayfair is for all occasions, all year!

The dress features an all-in-one grown-on collar and facing, set-in sleeves and a gathered waist at the centre-front, with an attached waist tie for tying at the back or front of the dress.

    I really love this pattern – I’ve made two now and find them perfect for summer. I think the construction and pattern drafting is very well designed because it only requires a few pieces to some together. The collar and waist ties give you all the shaping you need as well as creating a very elegant drape. All together, this makes for quite a quick and relaxing sew – not too many seams and no hassle with fit. I haven’t yet tried a maxi version with longer sleeves, but think that you could definitely use this for an evening dress.
    There are also a further two benefits, in that it is quite quick to sew (less than a day) and it doesn’t use a lot of fabric – Mine only used 1.5m. I would really recommend this pattern, because I think there’s a lot of potential with the various options and I wear mine a lot!

    This is my first Nina Lee pattern and I was really impressed by the instructions and options in this pattern. A lovely neckline, pleat details and tie make this a lovely make that is great to wear.
