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

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.

With much thanks to Cathie from Sew Darn Ezy and Steph from Owl & I for letting me include photos of dresses they've made with this pattern. Thanks also to Chrystal from Poetic Light Photography for our stunning cover photo.

The Alyss Party Dress is gorgeous! I found the instructions straightforward - the photos are really helpful. I sewed my first zip following this pattern. The fit is spot on. If you are looking to make a Twilight Sparkle costume for your daughter, Alyss is perfect. I can't wait to use this pattern again!
