The Lexi dress sewing pattern has the right balance of relaxed and fitted elements. This lined dress has a sleek A-line fit, long set-in sleeves, and a boat neck.

The waistline is dropped, and the skirt of the dress has small, subtle pleats at the front. The dress has an invisible zip fastening at the back and is lined.

Suggested Fabrics

Choose a light to medium-weight, non-stretch woven fabric. A medium drapey fabric is ideal, but depending on the desired result, you can also select either a low-drape fabric or a fabric with a little more drape. A dress-weight rayon or Tencel are recommended. For the lining, choose a light and slippery satin, preferably one made of rayon, as it’s more durable than silk, and more breathable than polyester.

Fabric Requirements

Outer Fabric: 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 155 – 245 cm (1 3/4 – 2 5/8 yd) // 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 235 – 295 cm (2 5/8 – 3 1/4 yd).

Lining: 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 110 – 165 cm (1 1/4 – 1 3/4 yd) // 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 110 – 230 cm (1 1/4 – 2 1/2 yd).

Sizing

UK 6 - 28 (approx. EU 32 – 56). Please check the size chart in the images and finished garment measurements. The pattern is drafted for a 172 cm (5’8″) tall person, so if like me you're on the shorter side of life you may need to take some off the bottom.

Notions

  • Fusible interfacing, 25 cm (1/4 yd)
  • 60 cm (24”) invisible zipper
  • A hook and an eye
