Kendra Dress Pattern Release!


I am very excited to announce the release of our first PDF sewing pattern, the KENDRA dress.  KENDRA is a fit and flare style dress with a V-shaped neckline, flattering princess-seam bodice with an empire waist, a generous pleated skirt designed for above the knee, and pockets.

Looking for that perfect dress for the holidays?  Create your own unique look using our KENDRA dress sewing pattern.


This flirty fit and flare style is flattering on many different body shapes.  The pattern is available in sizes 0-20.


Choose the perfect fabric to make it uniquely yours.  Imagine a day dress made of cotton sateen or linen, a dress for work in a wool suiting, or a dress for that special evening out in a brocade or satin.


The beautiful seam details allow you to get just the right custom fit.

The KENDRA dress is a versatile sewing pattern that you will want to make again and again.


We would love for you to share your makes with us at #kendradress and at #aliceandann.  Read below for more details.



Refer to the size charts below to chose your size.

KENDRA is listed as an INTERMEDIATE sewing level pattern.  Detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions will help you get a beautiful professional finish, both inside and out.  The pattern includes a fully lined bodice, a center back zipper, hem facings, and hand finishing touches.

KENDRA'S skirt length is designed to hit just above the knee.  Adjust the pattern to personalize the fit for your height and body shape. 


Fabric Suggestions and Notions


Due to the fitted nature of this style and the pleat construction, this pattern is suitable for woven medium weight fabric that has body.  This pattern is NOT suitable for lighter fabric with a lot of drape.  Suggested fabrics are brocade, satin, shantung, taffeta, bottom weight poplin and chambray, cotton sateen, linen and linen blends, and wool suiting.  Wovens with minimal stretch are okay as well.

Due to the fullness of the skirt, this pattern requires wider fabrics.  Refer to the fabric width requirements for your size in the chart below.

Other supplies required:  16" zipper*, lining, thread,

*Instructions are for a regular zipper, however an invisible zipper can be substituted.

    • Hi Lou, Thank you for the nice comment. No, unfortunately there is no sleeve option right now. In the future, I might consider offering a sleeve pattern extension to the pattern, but no immediate plans as of yet.
