Cloud Dress

Cloud is a versatile ruffle top and dress design inviting you to play with adding and removing tiers. You can make a top by only attaching the first tier, a midi dress with two tiers, or a floor-length gown by adding a third tier.

Cloud is the perfect pattern for beginners – you’ll learn how to sew a neckline facing and how to become a pro at making gathers.

This pattern was originally published in Issue No. 4 of TAUKO. The instructions are those included in the magazine and as such are a different format and less detailed than the usual Sewing Patterns by Masin.


Available sizes: 

1 (Bust: 78cm, Waist: 62cm, Hip: 86cm) – 9 (Bust: 146cm, Waist: 130cm, Hip: 154cm) – see size chart image for more details.

Choose your size based on your bust measurement. This dress is an oversized look. The recommended positive ease is 2–3″/5–8 cm at the bust.

In the following formats:
  • PDF: Includes instructions, A4 tiled print at home, US letter tiled print at home and A0 files
  • PDF + A0 Printing: Includes the PDF file as above and A0 printing

Note: To save paper, the pattern does not include pieces for the skirt tiers (simple rectangles). Instructions are provided for drawing the pieces directly onto your fabric.


Confident Beginner.


Cloud works best in non-stretch, light to medium weight woven fabrics. I prefer a stiff cotton fabric for this piece as it can hold its voluminous shape. Choose a rayon/viscose fabric if you want a more romantic, flowy look. You can also make the Cloud dress in a sheer fabric such as chiffon and wear it over a simple slip dress for a more elegant look.

The gingham sample dress is made from 52% linen/48% cotton, 6.19 oz/210 gsm and the petrol blue sample is made from a 100% cotton poplin (3.7 oz/125 gsm).
