Joan Dress by Sew Over It

£14.95

Based on the wardrobe of Mad Men’s iconic Joan Holloway, the Joan Dress should be a staple in the wardrobe of any vintage lover.

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 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.

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. Triple crepe is our favourite fabric for this dress. For the cooler months lightweight wools work gorgeously and suiting fabrics are perfect.

Fabric Requirements
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.
