Buy the Josephine Dress sewing pattern from Fibre Mood. This ultra-feminine dress has a jewel neck with a V-shaped keyhole finished with bias tape. The back fastens with a button. Josephine’s elegant bishop sleeves taper at the end with narrow barrel cuffs. And this dress is a hacker ’s dream. Just imagine the options… a dress with a gathered top, waist seam, and long, flared skirt, optionally tightened at the waist with a belt. Or you could make a classic blouse, or even lengthen it into a relaxed tunic, again with or without a belt.

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

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

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: The sky’s the limit. Josephine looks a treat in soft drape fabrics, such as viscose (crepe), polyester (crepe), lyocell, seersucker, double gauze, crepon, and broderie anglaise. But it also looks just as lovely in fabrics with more body such as poplin.

Version 1 Dress: 110 cm wide fabric: 335 – 425 cm // 140 cm wide fabric: 240 – 345 cm.

Note: To make the top or version 2 of the dress, you will need to lengthen pattern pieces 1 and 2.
