Hinterland Dress
Sew Liberated

$21.00 each

The Hinterland Dress by Sew Liberated offers a timeless, comfortable, and elegant silhouette.  Featuring three sleeve options, either partial or full button down plackets, customizable length, and inseam pockets, this is a pattern workhorse that spans the seasons.  The fit is loose yet shapely, with side bust darts and a gathered skirt with optional waist ties, and is easily modified for maternity and nursing.  Feel free to lengthen the bodice and hack it into an adorable cropped top, too!

This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners.  You will learn how to sew bust darts, bias facings, inseam pockets, button plackets, and inset sleeves.

Each pattern features an instruction booklet and pattern pieces printed on tissue, enclosed in a lightweight, full-color cardboard box.

Sew Liberated began in a drafty adobe house on a street without a name in rural northern Mexico in 2006 by Meg McElwee.  Over the years, Sew Liberated has evolved to focus on slow fashion, sustainability, and mentoring women to look at their sewing as a practice of self-care.  We believe that the act of making one’s own clothes can be transformative, personally and on a global scale, when done through the lens of sustainable fashion.
