Joan Dress Sew Over It Sewing Pattern.
Based on the wardrobe of Mad Men's iconic Joan Holloway, the Joan Dress is the latest vintage-inspired pattern to be added to our collection. 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 3/4 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. The booklet contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.
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 our Triple Crepe or Rio Crepe would be stunning. For the lining we like to use rayon, a lightweight crepe de chine or acetate. Check our online shop selection for fabrics we've picked specifically for the pattern.
