The Joan Dress is an intermediate level sewing pattern. We recommend you have experience inserting an invisible zip, as well as attaching sleeves.
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. For the lining we like to use rayon, a lightweight crepe de chine or acetate.
The Joan Dress comes in UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
