Beachcomber – Ladies’

(3 customer reviews)

$12.00 AUD

Level: Beginner




The Beachcomber is a relaxed fit dolman style top. It can be made as a longer length t-shirt, a tunic or a dress. There are options for short/long sleeves, colour blocking and two neckband styles. Deep pockets can be added to the tunic and dress.

This pattern goes from XXS – 5XL and there is a matching child pattern available.

This pattern is designed for light – medium weight knit fabrics with good drape. Bamboo jersey, DBP, viscose and lighter weight cotton/lycra jersey are all good choices.

It is suitable for enthusiastic beginners. An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish, but all options can be made using a regular sewing machine.

This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.

The print-at-home pattern can be printed on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

The copy shop file can be taken to professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.

The projector file can be used to project the pattern straight onto your fabric.

The measurement charts for all W&W patterns can be found here.

The pattern is created in layers meaning you can print just the layers (sizes) you need.

This is an instant download PDF, not a finished item. Due to the digital nature of PDF patterns, no refund can be given if purchased in error.

    A dress with bigggg pockets, for me with 3 dogs thats awesome, it is super comfy to wear as well, and seeing as you can make the colorblock version, or the plain one, with or without pockets, sleeves or no sleeves, you can make a year full of dresses, tops and tunics without ever getting bored. It is a fast make as well, so instant sewing satisfaction!

    Lovely pattern made in hearts and black solid sleeves, daughter did not want to take jt off when I did a fitting to check hem length. Not even finished. Comfy. More ordered. I will also be making for me. Daughter demanded to go back to the beach so pockets would be filled with shells!

    I love the Beachcomber dress I made for myself. I did the colour-blocked version with the fabulous big pockets and with long sleeves, and it turned out wonderfully. The instructions were easy to follow and its great that there are so many options.. I will definitely be making a whole lot more and when beginner sewists ask me for recommendations I recommend the Beachcomber as the plain option is such a straightforward sew, and is comfortable and flattering to wear.
