London Dress, Blouse & Skirt Printed Sewing Pattern

Dressmaking pattern for home sewing

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

This pattern comes in UK sizes 6-20, with the top of the size range measuring 46.5-38-49 inches for bust-waist-hip body measurements. 


Availability: 1 in stock


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. Our paper patterns are printed in the UK, with FSC-certified paper and by a printing company who is a member of the Woodland Trust.

Fabric Tips:
For the skirt we recommend a medium or heavy weight cotton, denim or heavy linen. For the dress you could use a light or medium weight cotton or bamboo, depending on how much structure you want in the sleeves and skirt. Choose a fabric with some drape for a softer effect. Linen, cotton lawn, lightweight cottons or bamboo will be beautiful for your blouse.

What you will need:

  1. Skirt: 1.8m fabric (115–150cm wide). Blouse: 1.9m (115cm wide) or 1.4m (150cm wide). Dress: 2.8m (115cm wide) or 2m (150cm wide).
  2. 0.5m interfacing in a similar weight to your fabric.
  3. Matching thread.
  4. Zip: 7–9″ for the skirt, 23″ for the top and 23–25″ for the dress. For the skirt we recommend a regular zip, however for the blouse and dress you could also use an invisible zip. A slightly longer zip for the dress and skirt will help you if you normally have to wriggle into clothes.
  5. Hook and bar or button for the skirt.
  6. Sewing machine with a zipper foot.
