The Alistra Dress is a body skimming, long sleeved column dress designed for larger bodies. View A has a slight scoop neck with a delicate neck band. View B has a funnel neck finish with a clever pattern inset that allows you to customize the funnel width no matter what size you wear! We have designed the neckband to be a low-stress application.  The Alistra Dress can be sewn on a serger/overlocker or entirely on a regular domestic sewing machine.


Difficulty 1/5

Sizes Available:

A to M (see size chart in images)

If our sizes are too small to include you, we will grade our patterns up for you. Please get in touch with us here.

Cup sizes
Where cup sizes have not been stated it's because the pattern is dart-free and has been designed to be 'cup-size flexible'. If you're unsure about what size to use, you can always email your measurements to for specific sizing advice.

Finished Garment Measurements:

See chart in images.

Selecting your size: This pattern has some negative ease, especially in the sleeves. If your measurements span several sizes, we suggest blending between size cut lines (this is sometimes called “grading between sizes”).

Please read Page 5 in our instruction booklet prior to selecting your size.

Alterations in length can be easily made by shortening or lengthening at the hem.

It is always recommended to sew a toile/muslin before cutting in to your 'good' fabric.

Suggested Fabric:

This pattern is designed to be sewn with knit fabrics, with 4-way stretch. We suggest cotton/spandex jersey, bamboo/spandex jersey, modal/spandex jersey.
