Item details

This listing includes the zip files for both 'US Letter Size' and 'European A4 Format' digital patterns, containing individual pdf files, which you can download and print off straight away.

The Vivienne is an absolute staple dress with plenty of options for creating stunning party dress and an every day dress. The bodice has princess seams for a snug fit. The sleeves have the option of sleeveless, cap and 3/4 length. The cuff comes either as integrated or separate cuff. The neckline is sweeping and beautifully cut with a Peter Pan collar or asymmetrical collar which completes the coveted 50's look. The back is fastened with a concealed zip.

You are getting 3 skirts with this pattern.

A plain circle skirt with 3 length options, peplum, shorter and regular (just above the knee).
A box pleated circle skirt with the same length options.
A straight skirt with box pleats and peplum option.

The teen sizes are 14-20 with a slender and regular option. You can find your size by looking at the chart above. You may have noticed that the model in this listing is no teenager! This pattern fits ladies up to bust 99 cm /39" and waist 80 cm / 31.5", which is excellent news as I love this dress to bits and can wear it too! Its basically an XS-L too.

There are 4 listings for this dress and here you see a stunning 50's option, which also has a very detailed video tutorial showing every step of the way.
The dress has a beautiful trim, cuffs and asymmetrical collar which I absolutely love.

I am hoping this dress will help you finally get the perfect fit!

Each variation on the pattern also comes with video instructions which you can access any time on You Tube before you decide to purchase this pattern. Watch the introduction to the 'Vivienne Teen Dress' and get excited too.


Take your pick from all the options and enjoy making a fashionable dress for yourself. The detailed size chart for measurements and also finished dimensions makes it easy to find the right fit for you. And best of all all the kiddo videos and instructions work here too, so there is an abundance of options and fabric combinations.

Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit.

The Vivienne pattern pack includes:
• A pattern in PDF format ready to print on regular US letter size paper / A4
paper with assembly instructions
• Detailed step by step photo tutorials
• Detailed video instructions on You Tube
Diagrams for the pleat construction
Size charts in inches and cm
Finished garment size chart
Printing instructions
Cutting out plan and fabric requirements

To make the dress a serger is an advantage..

If you want to reproduce this dress for your own small business I would be delighted.
Please note that the patterns I design are not to be used for larger scale production.

Average review
Awesome pattern! I'm using it to make a dress out of some fabric I've had lying around for a while, and the instructions are incredibly comprehensive and helpful! I wish there were a few more available sizes, but the instructions on grading and altering the pattern are honestly more than sufficient, plus as a "teen" size pattern it makes sense. Anyway, overall a really great sewing pattern!
