SEW OVER IT - THE JOAN DRESS

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Inspired by Joan Holloway from the Mad Men TV series, the glamorous Joan Dress is a classic fitted shape and fully lined with a sixties inspired collar detail. The pattern is suitable for more experienced dressmakers and our illustrated instructions will guide you through sewing darts, inserting a concealed zip and sleeves, attaching a collar and full lining and sewing a kick pleat.

A fitted bodice and skirt gives the dress a sassy, feminine feel that the real Joan herself would adore. The bodice is fitted with darts at the waist and back shoulder, and features a gently scooped neckline. Stylish ¾ length sleeves and a 60s inspired tie collar give the dress a super elegant feel. Designed to hit below the knee, the skirt is semi-fitted with darts and sports a kick pleat at the back hem. The whole dress is fully lined, giving you a gorgeously professional-feeling finish.

The Joan Dress comes in UK sizes 8-20 and is aimed at intermediate dressmakers who have made a few garments before.

Joan works beautifully in a variety of different woven fabrics. We recommend using a medium weight drapey fabric with some structure – you don’t want to use anything too lightweight and fluid. For the cooler months lightweight wools work gorgeously and suiting fabrics are perfect. Crepes such as Triple Crepe or Rio Crepe would be stunning. For the lining use rayon, a lightweight crepe de chine or acetate. 

The booklet with this pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.
