I saw this woolen J.Crew dress on their website about two months ago and decided to try and replicate it. I couldn’t for the LIFE of me find it again because it was two months ago. But I liked how simple and chic it looked paired with a long statement necklace.


It’s a very simple pattern. If you make it without a lining it might take under and hour to construct. This pattern isn’t graded. It’s just a one size. Since this is a shift dress and not fitted it can fit a range of sizes between 2-12. For visual reference, I’m a 6-8.


I’ll be posting variations of the dress through out the week so you can get inspiration for the pattern. So come back tomorrow for another take on this simple dress.


For this dress I used simple tan wool. JUST ONE YARD! And one yard of lining. Pretty sweet. I just love things that only require one yard.

Material Notes

1 yard of tan wool

    Excellent job with the drafting. Beige shows off the detail in the top stitching. The photo is well styled too.
