PuffBall Dress


Cute and comfy, this puffball dress can be made with many kinds of fabric. Use non-elastic materials, or thick jerseys for a funky everyday look.


Everyday clothes don’t need to be boring and drab. Getting dressed every morning should be fun!

This dress fits that bill. It’s made with light wool (recommended fabrics: non-elastic, medium-weight fabrics) and has a funky hem. The top of the puffball dress is cut on the bias, so it’s comfortable, easy to mix and match, and totally fun. You can also use stretchy fabrics, such as cotton- or viscose jersey.

The pdf-pattern (dl size 4,2Mt) includes sizes 34-42, and comes with a fully illustrated sewing tutorial. It even has a built-in mini-tute for that scary zipper!

Tutorial and pattern are written in Finnish and English.
