Everything you need to make this boatneck vest or dress is in the Walkley kit. No need to worry about choosing the right fabric, you don't even have to worry about the thread, just get your kit and start sewing!

The Walkley is your new favourite alternative to a t-shirt! This pattern is fairly loose fitting although it is shaped in a bit at the waist so it's not completely shapeless.  The vest is nice and long so you won't be flashing off your midriff and the dress works with both bare legs in summer as well as over leggings or jeans. Both options are included in the pattern as are instructions for adding extra seams so that you can combine different fabrics. See more versions on this Pinterest board.

This design is easy and is great for beginners that have just started to sew!

I have carefully selected some of the most beautiful quality dressmaking fabrics that are perfect for making MIY Collection sewing patterns. Kits are ideal for absolute beginners and the Walkley is an easy, quick sew.

What's in the Kit?

  • a copy of the printed paper version of the Walkley Vest & Dress pattern (which can be re-used to make more vests or dresses!)
  • the right quantity of a beautiful viscose / lycra ponte roma knitted fabric in a choice of 4 colours to make one dress
  • a reel of matching colour Gutermann polyester sewing thread.

All fabrics included in kits should be pre-washed before use, the amount of fabric included in the kit is enough to make one Walkley dress and allows for shrinkage that will occur when the fabric is pre-washed. Washing instructions are included.

There is a choice of 4 colours of fabric for your kit: grey marl, black, aqua/turquoise, cherry red.
