Waves & Wild Children's Over More Dress - PDF sewing pattern


The Over More Dress is a comfortable, casual dress designed to be worn over a t-shirt.

The Over More Dress is designed for light/mid-weight knit fabrics such as cotton/Lycra jersey or French terry. There are two styles of dress, each with their own pocket option – A line with a kanga pocket or gathered skirt with inseam pockets. Both styles can have snap shoulders or tie shoulders. There is also an option to make a fully lined/reversible A line dress.

This pattern is suitable for enthusiastic beginners. An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but importantly a sewing machine is all you need for all options.

The Over More Dress goes from prem./small NB – Age 12. There is also a coordinating overalls/dungarees pattern called the Over It Alls.

Skill level: Beginner

Size: Prem./Small Newborn – Age 12
