The modern Housedress Pattern is a swing housedress, like your grandma’s muumuu, but updated and so cute! The idea is that you can wear it as pajamas or around the house, but it’s cute enough to style a bit and wear out on errands too! A housedress is designed to be oversized and flowy. This pattern has a slightly more tailored top than some, but a flowy a-line skirt to flatter every figure. It’s the perfect pregnancy/nursing gift because of the design but I promise you’ll wear it 24/7 even if you’re not pregnant! I hope you enjoy finally making something for YOU! Maybe plan on making two, so you have something to wear while the first one is in the wash! Includes 3 length options so you can customize to your liking!
Pattern Type: PDF - Letter, A0, Projector

This pattern is drafted for drapey knits with at least 50% stretch. Some great blends include: Bamboo Lycra, Supima Cotton Micromodal Lycra, Modal, Brushed DTY, and Cotton Modal Slub. There are many options to choose from, just be sure that it’s a stretchy knit with drape.
Light weight fusible interfacing. I use Pellon 911FF.

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!

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!
