A classic vintage styled wiggle dress, the Joan dress has a fitted bodice and skirt which gives a sassy, feminine. 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.
Sewing Level The Joan Dress is an intermediate level sewing pattern. We recommend you have experience inserting an invisible zip, as well as attaching sleeves.
Fabric Suggestions 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.
The Joan Dress comes in UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements
