The Drawstring Dress is a simple yet elegant dress that can be worn in the comfort of your home, out and about, or even for a nice event. It has a drop sleeve and you can choose between long and short. Nursing or pregnant? We've got you covered! This dress is meant to work all throughout pregnancy and has a nursing liner option. We also have a kids pattern so you can match your mini!
The women's version of this dress is semi fitted at the top and form fitted around the hips. Please note that about half of those who tested this dress preferred a looser fit around the hips and sized up the skirt. Please make sure you read through the instructions completely. Especially pay attention to sizing/fabric notes to get the perfect fit for YOU!
I highly suggest making a muslin out of cheaper fabric first to make sure you've got the correct fit before cutting into your favorite fabric!

It will come in .zip format so it's best to download and save it somewhere on your desktop!
What kind of machine do I need to sew your patterns? A sewing machine is a must. If you are really wanting to get into making clothing though, I HIGHLY suggest getting a serger. Sergers make everything easier and cleaner. They also sew with knits a lot better than regular sewing machines!
I also own a coverstitch machine which has been a game changer. It's definitely not necessary but it is an amazing machine to have if you want your clothes to have a professional finish.
Can I sell clothes I make from your patterns? Yes, as long as you are the one sewing the clothes (you may not outsource to a manufacturer or otherwise mass produce the clothes). We love seeing our designs come to life!

We love to see your work and we appreciate when you tag #lowlandkids :)
Can I share patterns I buy? No. We spend a lot of time and effort on each of our patterns and instructions. If people are interested in using Lowland Kids patterns you've acquired, please direct them to our website.
How Do I know what size to print? Once you download the pattern, open up the instructions and there is a sizing chart that will help you decide which size to print! If your kiddo is in between sizes you can always take the width of one size and length of another.
Can a beginner sew your patterns? Yes! We have patterns for beginners and experienced sewists alike. In the description of each pattern there will be a level of difficulty and it's up to you to decide!
Do you support Layers? YES! Each pattern has layers incorporated so you can just deselect any sizes you don't want to print!
