The Waikerie [pronounced like bakery] Dress Extension pack provides pattern pieces and instructions to transform your Waikerie Shirt pattern in to at least three different dresses.

View A features a cropped, boxy bodice with a back yoke and generously gathered skirt. View B and View C feature an inverted box pleat at the back and a high-low hem. View B featured mitered side split, while View C has a classic shirt tail hem. All views feature a dropped shoulder, forward yoke seam, unique pocket and can be sewn with the short-sleeve or long-sleeve options using our unique sleeve band application.

The Waikerie Dress is designed with an oversized fit and no bust dart, the shirt will work as-is on a variety of bodies, regardless of cup size and is designed with a 4" difference between the full and upper bust. As always, we do recommend toiling the pattern before cutting in to your 'good' fabric.

This pattern download contains the Waikerie Dress Expansion ONLY. You will need pieces from the Waikerie Shirt Pattern, which can be purchased separately here.


We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Waikerie region, the Meru people, and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
