Item details

This listing is for the PDF PATTERN & TUTORIAL for making the Bells Beach Dress. You will be able to INSTANT DOWNLOAD the pattern after purchase.

*** This pattern was first included in the One Thimble Issue 5 Digital Sewing Magazine and was available to purchase on the One Thimble etsy store and website. The tutorial has been reformatted to match the new Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns branding and layout. The pattern pieces remain the same. ***


This is an CONFIDENT BEGINNER level pattern.

The Bells Beach Dress features:
- size 1-10 years (Drafted for a girls figure not a developing figure)
- shirred back panel
- lined bodice
- contrast yoke
- measurements in metric and imperial (ie cm and inches)

Measurements are provided for the skirt rather than pattern pieces to print.

This PDF includes a TUTORIAL with lots of photos to step you through making the dress & PATTERN PIECES which can be printed out on a regular home printer (with scaling set to none - prints fine on Australian, UK, USA and other international home printers). The skirt pieces are all rectangles (measurements rather than print out pattern pieces for the rectangles are included).

If you have a small scale sew from home business you are able to sell dresses made from this pattern. Where appropriate please include, “made with an AinsleeFOX pattern” or similar statement, when selling dresses made from this PDF. This PDF itself is covered by copy write and is for your use only. The PDF may not be shared. Each person who wishes to use this PDF should purchase their own copy.


I am happy to answer any questions you might have about this PDF both before and after purchase. I live in Australia so any delays in replies will be due to differences in time zones.

This listing is for the PDF only you will not be sent a complete dress or a paper pattern.

Many Thanks to Mary-Anne from Missy Moo Ruffles & Frills for letting me use pictures of this dress she made. And to Simone from India's Closet and Linda from Inspire Moi Photography for letting me use these stunning photos they took of Bells Beach dresses I made.
