The Eden Set

SS43 Eden Set dress sewing pattern

Say aloha to your next sewing project, The Eden Set. Make this sewing pattern in UK sizes 6-20 as a relaxed-fit summer dress and top with optional patch pockets and tie or cuff sleeve details.

Whether you’re stitching up a few new holiday outfits before you jet off somewhere exotic (you lucky thing!) or just want to give your day-to-day look a beachy vibe, this issue’s cover star is the ultimate easygoing summer style.

The Eden Set, in UK sizes 6-20 (US 4-18/EUR 34-48), can be made as an everyday tie-sleeve top or a breezy gathered dress – in fact, this versatile pattern isn’t just a breeze to wear, but  a breeze to make, too!



Eden is designed for simple-sew cotton or linen fabrics (just think of all the pretty prints there are to choose from!) and has a hook and eye closure rather than fiddly zips or buttons. She’s the perfect beginner’s project, or a speedy sew for a more experienced stitcher. Either way, your new summer wardrobe starts here!
