The Sia Dress PDF pattern by Taree Marsh is a mini or midi length dress that comes lined or unlined. The dress features a low V neckline with a hook and eye for modesty, front bust pleats, back bodice darts,and a shaped waist band with optional self fabric ties.

The skirt features front pleats, back body darts, and a non functioning front button tab with splits at the front and sides. Entry for the dress is via an invisible zipper in the back.

The dress pattern comes with 2 sleeve options. The first is a short sleeve with ties, and second, a mid length puffed sleeve. Both feature gathers at the sleeve head.

This is an intermediate pattern that is designed to extend your sewing skills. The unlined version is suitable for the intermediate beginner. It is encouraged to slow down your sewing with this project and enjoy each and every step. You will need an invisible zipper foot. Sew alongs are underdevelopment and will be provided soon to help you through some of the more challenging steps. And always feel free to email me with any issues you have along the way.

The dress is fitted through the waist but you could go up 1 size and remove the waist ties to create a more relaxed fit through the waist. The Sia dress can easily be shortened to create a fun summer above the knee dress (pattern & instructions are included) or lengthened to create a maxi dress. You could also easily remove the sleeves to create a sleeveless dress.



The Sia Dress PDF pattern is best suited to a fabric that is soft and drapes well. Consider using light to mid weight fabrics such as: linen, linen blends, cotton & cotton gauze. Or for a softer silhouette consider polyester, viscose, rayon,tencel, silk or blends of. The surface texture of a crepe or a crinkle is also a great option.

Lining pattern pieces and directions are provided for this pattern. Choose a lining that has similar properties to your main fabric so that they work together in your garment.
