Our lovely Fiona is a fitted button-up sundress with shoulder straps, princess seams, a straight cut skirt and fetching topstitched details. Wear it on its own during warm weather months, or layer it over tees and turtlenecks as the weather cools.

View A features a bra-friendly bodice and midi-length skirt with side slits. View B features crossed straps and a low back, with a mini or below knee-length skirt. All skirts and bodices are completely interchangeable so you can mix and match the Fiona of your dreams.

Sizes: Currently available in sizes 0-20 only (print and PDF)

Love this pattern

I have made this pattern three times now. Once in linen, once in a lightweight cotton and once in a designer fabric that is more dressy. All three are beautiful and fit well. It took a little tweaking to get it to fit well under my arm, but that is probably personal to my body. It is a quick make, the instructions are clear, and enjoyable. I do recommend this pattern.

Super patron!

Je n'ai utilisé que le buste de la robe et je l'ai mixé avec un autre patron pour faire une combinaison. Les explications sont claires et le patron tombe très bien. Je le referai en version robe pour l'été prochain !

Such a great pattern

I've made this twice for my daughter who is currently 1000 miles away: the first one in a nice, medium weight cotton for fit; the second time in peacock raw silk for an event. Her comment: I could live in this dress. The low back bodice construction takes a little practice but goes together as advertised. This is the silk dress, right out of the box I mailed it in, so unpressed. 😊

Best Sundress Ever

I absolutely love my Fiona Sundress. I have made it twice now and get so many compliments. I had to adjust the pattern to fit but the fit guides that are available made this easy. And now I have the perfectly fitting Fiona Sundress. I’ve been giving this pattern a massive thumbs up in my social media and blog page!
