Description

This is my pattern tester version of the Joan Dress pattern from Sew Over It. I used a bottle green wool blend fabric and lined it in a monochrome printed rayon both from their online shop. I loved making this dress! It’s a great design and is beautifully finished with a full lining. I love the details like the neck tie and shoulder darts and think it really hits than balance between vintage and wearable. I’m really pleased with the fit and the job I did on the construction of this. Full details can be found on my blog here http://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/pattern-testing-sew-over-it-joan-dress.html

      Thank you! I love how the lining looks with the green – I’ve actually got a lampshade I made out of the same print!

    You must be so pleased with that! It is a super dress, great fit and beautifully made up. Could’ve come out of LK Bennett or other high end store. I’m off to check out ‘Sew over it’
