Buy the Laneway Dress sewing pattern from Jennifer Lauren Handmade, a 40s-inspired dress that will set your heart racing! Double open-ended darts shape the waist and bust for the perfect fit, and the distinctive asymmetrical or centred collar is built into the facing of the bodice, meaning no extra pattern pieces or tricky construction techniques are required. With B, C and D cups included as well as clever inset pockets and a graceful V back neckline, Laneway is a perfect project for intermediate seamstresses.

Bonus: A bonus Classic Neckline pattern is also included, replacing the collar with a perfectly shaped neckline that dips just below your collarbone.

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: Light to medium weight woven fabrics with some structure. Choose any of your favourite woven fabrics from cotton lawn, voile and poplin to linen and chambray. You could even try a very lightweight denim for a more structured look or a cosy flannel for a snuggly soft wintertime dress.

Fabric requirements: Extra may be required for pattern and print matching.

150 cm (60″) wide fabric: Sizes 6-14, 2 m (2.19 yd) // Sizes 16-24, 2.25 m (2.5 yd).

115 cm (45″) wide fabric: Sizes 6-14, 2.75 m (3 yd) // Sizes 16-24, 3 m (3.3 yd).

Optional contrast collar: 42 x 53 cm (16 1/2″ x 20 7/8″). Fat quarters contain the perfect amount of fabric, and because they are generally quilting cottons, they will give your collar an extra crisp finish.

Notions: Lightweight fusible interfacing, 42 x 53 cm (16 1/2″ x 20 7/8″); 45 cm (17 3/4″) invisible zip; matching and/or contrast thread // Optional: 2 buttons.
