The Demeter dress and top pattern has four different variations to choose from. All views pull over the head with no closures. View A is a loose fitting dress with short set-in sleeves, bust darts, and a slight empire waistline at the front that dips back down to the natural waistline at the back. The skirt is gathered to the bodice, has inseam pockets and a deep hemline. View B is similar to view A, except it has no sleeves and one inch less wearing ease in the body as well as a longer skirt length (3”). View C and D are the companion tops to A and B. The tops are crop length (high hip) and also pull over the head with no closures. All views are oversized and have generous wearing ease. This pattern is drafted for woven non-stretch fabrics.

PRINTING YOUR PDF PATTERN
After downloading the files to your computer, you can print out the pattern using your home printer. The pattern pages are formatted to fit US standard page size (8.5” x 11”) as well as A4 page size (8.26” x 11.69”). Be sure the printer settings are set to “actual size” and only print the first page that includes the test square before printing the rest of the pattern. Measure the test square with a ruler to be sure the pattern pages will print accurately. If the measurements are correct, go ahead and print the entire pattern. Assemble the printed pattern by cutting out the pattern pieces and matching them together by the letters and numbers that are marked on each pattern (“1A” to “1A”, “1B” to “1B” etc.) and then taping them together.
