Buy the Mayberry Dress sewing pattern from Jennifer Lauren Handmade, a vintage-inspired button-front dress with a gathered waist. The pattern features an off-centre button placket, bust darts and a drawstring waist with ties at the front. There are inset sleeves that come in three different lengths: choose sweet turn and hem short sleeves, or add a little drama with 3/4 or long sleeves that gather gently at a narrow cuff. With A, B, C and D cups as well as clever inset pockets, Mayberry is a perfect project for confident beginner seamstresses.

You can also mix and match pattern pieces with the Quincy Dress and Farris Jumpsuit and Playsuit. Become your own designer by mixing and matching tops and bottoms between all three, creating an almost endless number of perfect dresses, jumpsuits and playsuits!

Sizing: UK 6 – 24 with A, B, C and D cups. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

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.

Notions: Lightweight fusible interfacing, approx. 62 x 68 cm (24 1/2″ x 26 3/4″); five 2 cm (3/4″) wide buttons or snap buttons; approx. 170 cm (67″) of cord/bias binding for drawstring; matching and/or contrast thread.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4/US letter print-at-home pattern (100 pages, but you only need to print the pages for your cup size); A0 copy shop pattern (6 sheets, but you only need to print the sheets for your cup size).
