Lois is a smart, chic, office-perfect dress that has a slight 70’s flair while still feeling modern and contemporary.

The bodice features novel shaping, with a clever combination of darts and pleats, perfectly positioned to reduce unnecessary bulk around the bust and waist. The faux-wrap, V-shaped neckline is completed with a cute collar and collar stand. There is no back neckline facing, creating a beautifully clean finish on the inside of the dress. Lois’s long sleeves finish with cuffs, but can easily be cut shorter to suit your desired length.

The dress comes with two hem lengths. Version 1 hits below the knee, and features short slits in the side seam for a little bit of extra movement and swish. Version 2 is a cute 60s-inspired length, designed to hit above the knee. This version looks fabulous with opaque tights and ankle boots for cooler weather.

Lois has no zips or buttons, and instead goes over the head thanks to the elasticated back waist. As well as making the dress easy to sew and fit, not to mention comfy to wear, the elastic creates a gorgeous gathered effect whilst nipping in the waist.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
