Jennifer Lauren Handmade Quincy Dress
£12.00 – £19.00
Buy the Quincy Dress sewing pattern from Jennifer Lauren Handmade. The Quincy Dress is a classic shirt-waist dress that blends fun construction techniques with an effortless silhouette. The pattern features a v-neckline, bust darts for shaping and a fully enclosed yoked back bodice. Pockets are neatly integrated into the panelled skirt, and the in-built drawstring casing creates a relaxed and casual look. The set-in sleeves are slightly longer than standard short sleeves and are more relaxed in style. Sleeve variations include a straight turn-and-hem sleeve or a notched cuff sleeve. Quincy also includes pattern pieces in A to D cups so you’ll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit!
Because Quincy is the sister pattern to the Mayberry Dress, you can also mix and match all the 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 is a cosy autumn dress pairing the Quincy front bodice and panelled skirt with the Mayberry long sleeve and back bodice. You can mix and match pattern pieces with the Farris Jumpsuit and Playsuit too!

To determine your cup size, go by the bra cup size you usually wear.
If you are unsure, wearing supportive undergarments and keeping your tape measure parallel to the floor (make sure it is not dipping at the back), measure both your full bust (the widest part of your bust, all the way around) and your under bust (the part of your rib cage just below your bust). Use the difference between these measurements to determine your approximate cup size: A cup = 10-12 cm, B cup = 12-14 cm, C cup = 14-16 cm, D cup = 16-18 cm.
