The Groove Dress is an utterly covetable swing dress made using knit fabric, with short or long sleeves and a high low or straight hemline. And as if that wasn’t enough, we went crazy to offer you five, yes five different neck options. Round, scoop, slash, cowl or hooded, whatever takes your fancy. The combinations are endless (well nearly, you do the maths).

A comfortable and practical timeless basic that even looks good over a baby bump. It’s quick and easy to sew, which means you’ll be using this pattern over and over and over again.

Come on, machines at the ready, it’s time to get your Groove on.


Kids and teen sizes also available.

    A truly wonderful pattern! The instructions were clear and well illustrated, and I loved the option to do an easier or harder, but more professional, neckband. I am so pleased that I now know how to sew a bound jersey neckband. I also love that there are five necklines to choose from – so many options! I shortened my dress by 17cm as I am very short and it was so easy to do, and the pattern has clear instructions for shortening and lengthening. I would highly recommend it!

    My absolute favourite dress pattern. Loads of variety included in the pattern and scope for top hacks too. Different knits fabrics give totally different looks. Have tried fine burnt out jersey, stretch velvet and scuba as well as cotton and viscose jerseys. I’ve made seven dresses so far and a couple of tops too. Great pattern and looks great on all shapes and sizes.

  3. Jostun

  5. Laura

    Flattering and well made pattern! Love, Love, Love!

  6. Annie

    A brilliant pattern! Flattering and really comfortable. I have made it as a t-shirt and tunic too-all work really well. I was surprised how well the shape works and the high/low makes it really different. Keep on making patterns for adults please. One of my most used patterns!

  7. Beverley

    A brilliant versatile pattern! The shape is very flattering and can easily be adapted to a tunic or t-shirt. It works well every time! You worry at first that it is going to be too loose but it cleverly fits your upper body so that the fullness below just flatters. Well done for designing an excellent pattern for all ages.
    So glad I bought it and will keep on the look out for more of your designs in the future.

  8. Danna

    I absolutely LOVE this pattern! I stumbled across it and decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did! I made 2 dresses in one day- A high/low hem with a cowl neck, and a slash neck with straight hem. I also followed the instructions to add to the bust. I have been sewing for 30+ years and normally never follow the pattern directions because I find them confusing and hard to follow. The instructions included in this pattern are clearly written, simple and easy to follow. This dress is incredibly comfortable. I can’t wait to make more!

  9. Diana

    Another great pattern! The dress is quick to sew and the finish product is amazing! Lots of options which allows to make one per season. The fit is great and flattering in all body shapes. A great addition to any mom-on-the-go wardrobe!

  10. Maria

    I love Made it Patterns, because their designs are modern, produced in excellent quality, perfect fit and full of nice techniques to follow. Obviously this dress is not the exception!

  11. Trudy
