Teddy Dress

The Teddy Dress is a playful every-day knit dress pattern, designed to suit a variety of knit fabrics for all seasons, including our ZQ Premium Merino jersey. It features a wide straight oversized fit in the bodice with a dropped shoulder, in-seam pockets and a generously gathered skirt. The skirt has subtle panelling to allow for maximised fabric yield. The hem sits just below the knees and can be made up sleeveless or with long slim sleeve!

Teddy Sizing + Fit

The Teddy Dress comes in our NZ 4-32 size range and is a casual fit. We recommend referring to both the garment measurements and the body measurements when selecting a size, regardless of what size you wear in ready-to-wear clothing.

Our patterns are drafted for a height of 172cm (5'7"). You may wish to lengthen or shorten the body and sleeve hem depending on your height and personal preference and change the location of the pockets. If you wish to adjust the fit through the bust, we recommend using the bust apex points provided on the patterns.
