Evie's Village Frock


I am a loooooong time reader of Sugar City Journal and purchased this utterly divine Village Frock pattern about two years ago. It's one of those lovely patterns that is such a pleasure to sew because of its easy-to-follow instructions in a booklet that is put together with all the love and care you just wish you could find in every pattern. And when the kid is all dressed up in her frock, I just want to whisk her away to a flower-filled, country field. Cue skipping and one large wicker basket.

I made this up in a red, yarn-dyed linen that is no longer available. But with warmer days ahead (or so they say), there is an abundance of lovely linen in our stores and online. Tania - a regular Melbourne customer - made up her version in our Medium Bleached Chambray Cotton.



Unfortunately, the pattern is no longer available but email Lynne if you're interested as she kindly said she may have a few left. And check out other Sugar City creations on their Flickr page.

Thanks Lynne and Melissa for creating such a beautiful design!

  1. Love this...At first glance, it looks knitted...and I think there would be a way to recreate a knitted version. Hmmm. An idea. Anyhow, love it, especially the row of buttons.

  2. Gorgeous! Lovely fabric choice. I love this pattern so sad to see it's been sold out for a while. Might try my hand at drafting something similar.

  5. This pattern is so lovely and timeless. I made one for my niece about 18months ago and it still looks fantastic. I made it up in a beautiful grey (Tessuti) linen with red buttons. When she first wore it it hung below her knees and now it is above but still looks great. Best little girls pattern every & I think it would be great in one of those cute Japanese fabrics cut as a top for the summer!

  8. Just gorgeous! I also have long admired all the versions of the dress made up on sugar city journal. Evie's version is divine, especially with the tights and boots.

  9. Evie spent her last day in Prep in this divine dress and she looked gorgeous. In real life it's just beautiful....almost as beautiful as Evie herself!
