Nina Lee Kew Dress & Skirt Sewing Pattern

The Nina Lee Kew Dress & Skirt Sewing Pattern features a dreamy blend of vintage and contemporary elements.  This dress pattern is inspired by the balmy ups and rainy downs of British summertime. Think picnics and garden parties, strawberries and cream, sometime sunshine and being beside the seaside…

Version 1 has a touch of 1940s’ tea dress, with ruched sleeves for those cooler days. Alternatively version 2 is hot-weather ready, with a strappy bodice and the option of on-trend cold-shoulder sleeves. Finally, version 3 is a skirt adaptation, perfect for dressing up or down all year-round.

The skirt for all three versions features an elegantly flattering high-low hem which dips at the back. All three options close with a front button fastening, and are finished on the inside with facings.

Skill level: confident beginner

SUITABLE FABRIC:

Version 1: best suited to light to medium-weight fabrics with some drape, e.g. rayon, viscose, crepe, linen blends

Versions 2 and 3: as for version 1, but also lightweight cotton, e.g. cotton lawn, or linen. Version 3 would also work well in medium-weight fabrics such as denim or corduroy.

NOTIONS:

0.5m of lightweight interfacing.

Versions 1 and 2: 15 1/2-inch (12 mm) buttons.

Version 3: 11 1/2-inch (12 mm) buttons

Hello, I’m Nina!

Nina Lee is my independent pattern label celebrating the mighty power of making! I’m based in London and create sewing patterns inspired by the incredible heritage and diversity of this brilliant place. Our patterns are named after places in the city, from fashion-forward Carnaby Street to the historic treasure trove that is Bloomsbury, and on our printed pattern envelopes you’ll find original illustrations capturing the atmosphere of each neighbourhood.

We aim to be part of the movement away from disposable, ‘fast’ fashion, towards a more sustainable and rewarding form of dressing – but one that never forgets to be fun. Our designs are intended to fit into your me-made wardrobe year-round, and to work as canvases for your own creativity.

All of our patterns come in UK sizes 6–20, with in-depth, fully illustrated instructions to guide you through. They are drafted for an average height of 5’5″ and a B cup.
