Quincy Dress PDF

Jennifer Lauren Handmade


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 flattering panelled skirt, and the in-built drawstring casing with two sleeve options combine to create a relaxed and casual look. The set-in sleeves are slightly longer than standard short sleeves are are more relaxed in style. Sleeve variations include a straight turn-and-hem sleeve or a notched cuff sleeve.  Quincy includes pattern pieces in A to D cups so that you’ll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.

What we think: We love the mix of a tunic shape and a shirtdress in this pattern alongside the deep pockets – who doesn’t need a dress with pockets?

You can also choose any of your favourite lightweight fabrics from cotton lawn, voile and poplin, linen and chambray.

    5 out of 5 A sleeveless summery Quincy


    The Quincy dress is a shirt-waist style dress, with a yoke, drawstring to bring the waist in, nice pockets and interchangeable pieces with the Mayberry dress. Oh and it has cup sizes! It’s basically a pretty, easy-to-wear, perfect summery dress. I modified my version slightly- made it sleeveless and added elastic at the waist instead of the tie. I really love it, particularly as the sleeveless aspect makes it perfect for summer. I actually made this last year and I have worn it lots, and it was a pleasure to discover it again this summer. The other thing I love about this dress… this gorgeous Seasalt voile with vibrant strawberries and daisies. It’s such a lovely print.

    For reference- I cut a 6B grading to an 8 at the waist. I scooped out the armscye to make it sleeveless, and finished them with bias binding. The instructions from Jennifer Lauren are great. I definitely recommend this dress!
