Sorrel Dress
Jennifer Lauren Handmade

$18.00 each

Sorrel dress is a fresh take on the classic shirt-waist dress, seamlessly pairing vintage elements with modern design.

Shaped with double open-ended darts around the bodice and skirt waistline, Sorrel’s relaxed silhouette and sleek skirt provide the illusion of a fitted garment with all the comfort of a shift-style dress.

A simple foldout collar frames the face, creating a gentle V neckline and grown-on sleeves lend a casual vintage vibe.

Layer with fitted long sleeves and boots for cool weather, or make up in a seasonal double gauze or flowing cotton lawn for a light-weight summer garment.

View 1 includes a separate button placket, great for playing with prints and different fabric layouts. View 2 has a grown-on button placket, helping keep the design simple and the construction straight-forward.

The pattern envelope contains a full size printed pattern and printed instructions.  Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements as well as a step by step guide to figuring which bust cup size you are, so that you can make a garment that fits your unique shape.

What else do I need?

Fabric recommendations: light to medium weight woven fabrics, such as cotton lawn, voile and poplin to linen, tencel and double gauze. Rayon and silks would make a lightweight and graceful Sorrel while mid-weight denims and corduroy would lend themselves to a more structured garment.

*See gallery image for fabric amount requirements based on size choice. Additional fabric may be required to match stripes, plaids, or using border prints.
