The Kinjarling Dress is a relaxed, woven dress pattern. There are three lengths, two necklines and two neck finishes. The dress can open at the front or the back and fastens with buttons or snaps. There are three pocket choices and optional waist ties.
The pattern is designed for lightweight woven fabrics with poplin, lawn and linen being ideal choices. The pattern is best suited to those sewing at an intermediate level but there are options available for enthusiastic beginners looking to learn new skills.
The Child Kinjarling Dress goes from Age 2 – Age 12. There is also a coordinating adult pattern which goes from XXS – 7XL.

This dress was inspired by the beautiful place I am lucky to call home. This may be my home but it is not my land. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land. Kinjarling is the traditional name for place I live. The choice of name has been discussed with members of the local Menang Noongar community including Carol Pettersen – Menang Elder, Recipient of the Order of Australia and Justice of the Peace. I am extremely grateful for their time and advice.
