Jennifer Lauren Handmade Afternoon Blouse and Shift Dress Sewing Pattern PDF

An expansion of the popular Afternoon Blouse, this new version includes additional sizes in the upper range as well as a comfortable and stylish Shift Dress with your choice of a back box pleat or light gathering for additional shape as well as the all-important side seam pockets.

For the beginner, the flowing design will help to build sewing confidence with its choice of two decorative necklines and 1940s-inspired grown-on sleeves. For the advanced sewer, this gorgeous pattern can be made in one afternoon using silk or rayon – a luxurious, quick and satisfying make.

While the Afternoon Blouse has been designed to be tucked into high-waisted skirts and pants for a vintage look, it also works perfectly worn loose with jeans and sandals for a modern look. The Shift Dress has been designed with pockets for hiding all of your treasures and can be worn as is or with a belt for extra shape.
