Bexley Dress

Size Guide

Feel stylish while dressing in ultimate comfort! The Bexley Dress is your not-so-basic t-shirt dress, designed to hug, skim, and drape in all the right places. It's perfect for everyday wear but also nice enough for date night — you'll want one for every occasion.

Bexley features: 

  • Scoop neckline
  • Snug fit through shoulders, bust, waist, and sleeves
  • Flared drape below the waist
  • Above-knee and knee length options
  • Short, elbow and long set-in sleeves
  • For light- to medium-weight drapey knit fabrics with four-way stretch only (rayon recommended)


Women's XXS-3X (bust 30-53")

The Bexley Dress includes:

  • 13 pages of instructions with color illustrations, including pattern specific directions for personalizing fit
  • 30 pages of printable pattern pieces, with a print list so you print only what you need for your desired size/style. Also includes a copy shop file with pages formatted for 36" wide or A0 size

Video Sewalong Option

A video course for the pattern is also available! If fitting is your chief frustration or if you just want to add more tips and instruction to the written pattern, you can get almost an hour of Bexley video to help you out. The video covers everything from how to do the fitting adjustments you might need to  tips for sewing with the recommended fabrics and shows making this dress entirely on a regular sewing machine - no serger required.  Choose one of the +Video options from the drop down menu to get the videos class. 

Large Format Print Option

If you choose to add a large format print, a 36" wide sheet with the pattern pieces printed on it will be shipped to you; you will still need to refer to the PDF for the instructions. This option is only available to U.S. customers. Customers elsewhere in the world will find it more economical to get the digital copy shop file printed locally than to have a print shipped. 

Instant Download
This is a PDF Sewing pattern - you will only receive links to download the pattern to print at home. Nothing will be mailed to you unless you choose (US only) to add a large format print, in which case a 36" wide sheet with the pattern pieces printed on it will be shipped to you; you will still need to refer to the PDF for the instructions. 

    All Blank Slate Patterns print on both US and A4 paper and include standard and metric measurements.
