Buy the Asteria Dress sewing pattern from Jennifer Lauren Handmade. The Asteria Dress is a short-sleeved, semi-fitted dress from the bust down, shaped with ties at the natural waist. Featuring a square neckline with an optional collar, the bodice is shaped with bust darts, and you can choose whether you’d like a full button-down bodice (View 1) or have it cut on the fold (View 2). Generous pockets are neatly integrated into the side seams of the box-pleated skirt. Full of whimsy, comfort and all the things you want in a stylish day-to-day dress, you will wear Asteria season after season.

Asteria includes pattern pieces for A to D cups so won’t need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

Suggested fabrics: The Asteria Dress is suitable for a wide range of light to mid-weight woven fabrics with some drape. For a summer weight dress, choose any of your favourite fabrics from cotton lawn, voile and poplin to linen and chambray. Rayon, silks and sheer fabrics would also make a beautiful Asteria for confident sewers. Light to mid-weight denims, pinwale (baby) cords, barkcloth, flannel and wool and wool blends can also be used for a heavier weight dress for cooler weather.
