Slip on three tired sleeveless midi dress.

Pattern format info

Product Description

The Nova Midi Dress is a slip on sleeveless tiered dress that has a Boho inspired look. This pattern works well in a print or plain fabric that’s perfect for spring and summer months.

We love this easy slip on dress that can be paired with a heel or slide or styled for everyday with a classic sneaker. The double bodice with no fasteners makes this an easy and quick make. If you prefer a shorter style just leave off the lower tier, but do check your personal length.

Fabric Suggestion

Silk, crepe, rayon, washed linen.

    Loved this pattern, I just did 2 tiers and added 10cm to each tier. Beautiful dress, I can’t wait to sew another one. Sizing is perfect (size 10) true to size.

    Made with a lovely cotton voile, so light and floaty. Used the size based on my upper bust measurement then did a full bust adjustment. The top is a tiny bit roomy, I may have been able to size down one size but might have struggled to incorporate enough with the FBA. I’m 5’4″ so I left the length per the pattern and it turned out to hit at my ankles.

    I also love the dress is maxi length. I made it out of linen. Had to go 2 sizes smaller though, it runs rather large.

    Love this dress! I love the boho look and it’s very comfortable. I made it in a beautiful knit and it worked out great.

    Lovely pattern, well drafted, good level of instruction, unfortunately for me a 5’9” size 20 not a good look !

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
