The Sumekko Dress is a collaborative pattern inspired by that we wanted to share with everyone. This is a clever maxi singlet dress that only has a centre back seam. It can be shaped at the waist with optional waist darts.

The Sumekko Dress is a PDF pattern is designed to be hacked and personalised, and has different length suggestions for a singlet or knee length version. It is suitable for knits with a minimum of 20%stretch.


Sizes 8 - 16

The element that makes the pattern unique is also its limitation: it has no side seams, which means the whole pattern must fit onto the width of the fabric. Larger sizes would need wider fabric, and that is not easily available at this stage.

This pattern will be printed and dispatched to you once you have placed your order. It contains the A0 Pattern Pages. You can choose if you want to receive the instructions as a emailed file or for a small additional fee they can be printed for you too.

We conserve paper by printing on both sides of the A4 paper for the instructions.

The Pattern will be dispatched in a Kraft String and Washer Envelope that has the Pattern sticker on the front which is perfect for using to store you pattern in once sewn.

Pattern Union was created by Sarah Pondevie, owner of Workspace Fashion and Design school, teacher and maker of fashion, who has a passion for pattern making. Her years of working in made-to-measure clothing and teaching has given her the breadth of knowledge to create a range of clothing patterns that appreciates the fact that traditional sizing does not reflect standard measurements.

Pattern Union offers the home sewer a new approach to fitting and designing clothes. The manifesto ‘Fit, form and function, without compromising style’ encompasses the ethos of our brand, which is to enable fit alterations that assume not all bodies are the same, and provide the tools required to easily adapt to the individual.
