I love the versatility of layered dressing and this design is great for all seasons. It can be made in lightweight natural fabric such as voile or handkerchief linen for hot weather or wovens and mid weight knits and worn over long sleeve tops for Winter.
Adelaide is a round neck sleeveless tunic with 2 length options. The tunic falls almost to the knee and the dress is at lower calf length (on average height woman 162cm or 5” 7”) The hi/lo hemline falls to 2 handkerchief points at the front and back. The deep pleat at the centre front and centre back gives the garment fullness and swing. The armhole is deeply cut as the garment is intended to be worn over a singlet or long sleeve top.
The pattern has 15 pages of instructions with diagrams and pictures. It can be printed at home on 52 x A4 pages or 2 x AO pages at a copy shop (in Australia at Officeworks cost is $4pp)

NO REFUNDS ON DIGITAL PRODUCTS
It’s not my policy to give refunds to purchasers who realise after buying that they can’t open the file on their particular device, for example a chromebook, ipad or tablet. Pattern files will open on a PC as they are saved in .pdf format which is read onscreen in Adobe Reader.
From a PC the PDF pattern and instruction booklets can be printed on a home printer that is connected to the PC. If you don’t have a home printer there are other options such as emailing the file directly to a copy shop or saving it on a memory stick (usb) and taking it there for printing. AO files are large paper sheets that allow the pattern to be printed without the necessity of taping multiple A4 pages together. AO files can only be printed at a copy shop on a wide format specialist printer and the business will charge a price per page for this service.
Please be aware that some browser devices such as Chromebooks, tablets and ipads have limited functionality and may not run the programs necessary for opening the file format. Sometimes apps can be installed that facilitate the necessary programs on those devices and this something you need to know in advance before buying your PDF pattern.
You can still buy a pattern even if you only have a browsing device if you’re prepared to do one of these options
• email the file to your own PC, a friends, one in a workplace or even in a public library to access the file. In a public library you'll be able to print to their printer for a price per page.
• email the file directly to a copy shop and have them print either the AO or PDF versions.
