Axis Dress & Skirt Sewing Pattern, Papercut Patterns



This timeless ode to Audrey Hepburn features a vintage-inspired straight neckline and waist ties that can be wrapped around to tie at the front, or fastened at the back to form a plunging back. You can choose between a figure-hugging pencil skirt with front split and an equally classic and flattering A-line silhouette. With the option to make either the entire dress or just the skirt from this pattern, you'll have plenty of outfits for your own Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Both Paula and Keziah have styled the skirt with variations of the Nexus Blouse.

Suggested Fabrics:

  • Light to mid-weight woven fabrics. Linen, cotton, silk or blends.

    Papercut Pattern's Unique Sizing:

    Rather than XXS to XXL, Papercut are now using a unique number system, starting with 1 (NZ/UK size 6) as the smallest size and up to 8 (NZ/UK size 20). They hope that this system will be a step towards offering more inclusive sizing, and also really encourage you to take your measurements, rather than to go by your standard size.

    Every body is different and beautiful in its own unique form, and they have found that sewers often get discouraged by how different a size 10 or Small can be in different brands or patterns.

    Please refer to their sizing chart below to find your size for your Papercut creation:

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
    BUST 76 82 88 94 100 106 112 118

    HIP 82 88 94 100 106 112 118 124
  • The pattern comes carefully packaged in an envelope together with step-by-step sewing instructions.
