Pattern Details

This is my interpretation of the 60s 3 armhole dress. I drafted it from looking at the various patterns for it and then made it up from an old tablecloth!!! The dress itself is cut in one piece and its a full front, full back and then another piece that wraps around and is held in place by '3rd' armhole, you can also belt it and you can wear the wrap to the front or back. Original Blog post for the dress is at on my blog ( Its a very useful little dress, and can be used as nightwear/loungewear, dressy dress, or beach dress. The pattern is very basic, its drafted for a size 12 (88cm bust) and you will have to 'square' down to get the desired length. If you have any comments or questions on the pattern, please email me

I make clothes from charity shop and thrifted buys. I prefer to recut and remake, and try and restyle these clothes using simple cuts and patterns. I also blog at I am sharing patterns I have drafted from my upcycle makes. These patterns are designed to be simple sews and are all a size 12. The patterns are all free hand drawn.
