Jennifer Lauren Handmade - Sorrel Dress
Sorrel is a fresh take on the classic shirt-waist dress, seamlessly pairing vintage elements with modern design. With inclusive sizing, A to D cups and pockets!
Shaped with double open-ended darts around the bodice and skirt waistline, Sorrel’s relaxed silhouette and sleek skirt provide the illusion of a fitted garment with all the comfort of a shift-style dress.
A simple foldout collar frames the face, creating a gentle V neckline and grown-on sleeves lend a casual vintage vibe. Layer with fitted long sleeves and boots for cool weather, or make up in a seasonal double gauze or flowing cotton lawn for a light-weight summer garment.
View 1 includes a separate button placket, great for playing with prints and different fabric layouts. View 2 has a grown-on button placket, helping keep the design simple and the construction straight-forward.
Difficulty: confident beginners
Sizes: 6-24 included, choose from A, B, C or D cup sizing. (see image for measurements)
Recommended Fabric: light to medium-weight woven fabrics with some drape.
Such as cotton lawn, voile and poplin or linen, tencel and double gauze. Rayon and silks would make a lightweight and graceful Sorrel while mid-weight denims and corduroy would lend themselves to a more structured garment.
Fabric requirements: approx 2.5m @ 115cm wide, or 2.25m @ 150cm wide. see image for details.
