Quincy Dress Pattern by Jennifer Lauren Handmade
With a graceful V neckline, bust darts for shaping and a fully enclosed yoked back bodice, Quincy is the perfect stepping stone towards tackling more advanced sewing projects.
Pockets are neatly integrated into the flattering panelled skirt, and the in-built drawstring casing with two sleeve options combine to create a relaxed and casual look.
The set-in sleeves are slightly longer than standard short sleeves are are more relaxed in style. Sleeve variations include a straight turn-and-hem sleeve or a notched cuff sleeve.
Whether you cinch the waist in completely for date night or leave it loose and flowing for a day at the beach, Quincy’s modern silhouette makes it an easy-to-fit wardrobe staple.
Because Quincy is the sister pattern to the Mayberry Dress, you can mix and match all skirt, sleeve and bodice pieces between both patterns to make your own customised dress.
There are so many different dresses you could choose to make. The pink crane dress is a summery hybrid using the Quincy V neckline with the Mayberry back bodice, skirt and short sleeves. The black floral shows off a cosy autumn dress pairing the Quincy front bodice and panelled skirt with the Mayberry long sleeve and back bodice.
This is a multi-sized pattern in sizes 6-24. Quincy includes pattern pieces in A to D cups so that you’ll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.
Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements, as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.
The Quincy Dress is suitable for a wide range of lightweight woven fabrics with some drape.
Rayon, silks and other slinky fabrics suit the dress perfectly. You can also choose any of your favourite lightweight fabrics from cotton lawn, voile and poplin, linen and chambray.
