The Jenna Dress sewing pattern from By Hand London. The dress is empire line with a bias cut skirt. Featuring a darted bodice with two different neckline and sleeve options that are entirely interchangeable, you can choose from a low square neck with short sleeves and a pretty tie cuff, or a demure jewel neck and optional Peter Pan collar with slim bracelet length cuffed sleeves, or any bodice-sleeve combination and skirt length you prefer.

NOTE: Unfortunately we are no longer selling By Hand London patterns so this pattern is not available to buy.

Suggested fabrics: The bias cut skirt will benefit from a light to medium weight woven fabric with a bit of body. Opt for crepe, floaty or drapey silks and rayons, silk noil, flannel and soft cottons or linen. However, we have also seen this dress beautifully made in more rigid fabrics such as silk organza and lace and she’s just as pretty.

Fabric requirements: See image for fabric requirements.

Sizing: UK 6 – 24 (US 2 – 20). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

Notions: A 22″ invisible zipper OR a 16″ invisible zipper (if you can still get your dress on over your head unzipped to the waist).
