Selkie Patterns London Dress, Blouse And Skirt Sewing Pattern

Selkie Patterns’ debut pattern, London, reflects their love for the capital and combined tastes of vintage inspiration and clean lines. 

Available in sizes 6-20 (UK) the London has raglan sleeves, a knee length skirt, a keyhole neckline, loose bodice pleats, gorgeous shaping around the waist and a shaped waistband for the skirt. 

The blouse version has playful gathers around the waist and makes a versatile, feminine wardrobe staple. 

Inspired by British fashion of the late 1950s the London’s clean shape features simple but flattering shapes, and suits itself to many different fabrics and many different occasions. You can choose to leave the darts unstitched or stitch them fully for a more fitted look. The neck tie is also optional. Both options are provided on the pattern.

The London pattern comes beautifully packaged with two A0 full scale sewing pattern sheets on high quality paper. A step by step, fully colour illustrated instruction booklet with tips and tricks (including a zip guide) to sew your own garments. The paper pattern is printed in the UK, with FSC-certified paper and by a printing company who is a member of the Woodland Trust.
