New pattern: the Jolene shirtdress
Jolene is Ready to Sew’s second adjusted pattern (after Jacob), indeed the other designs of the collection have a rather loose fit just like Josette or Joseph. This summer like every summer, shirt-dresses are trendy, and I have been dreaming of a slightly fitted to the waist shirt-dress to wear during the mid-season or for the summer. Above is Jolene’s mood board and the atmosphere in which I imagined it:
Jolene is a beginning of a summer’s night, it is a romantic countryside, it is a guitar, it is the smell of a pie cooking in the oven, it is a bit of nostalgia with ‘your rocky spine’ by great lake swimmers in the background. It is a dress we feel sexy in, even though showing so little skin.
Jolene is a shirt/shirt-dress with plenty of pretty details. Its waist slightly fitted but still comfortable to be worn in the everyday, its gathered strapped cuttings for a perfect fitting and a romantic look, and its singular buttoning for a little folk country spirit but genuinely modern. It was important for me that Jolene was not retro, my inspiration does not come from the fifties shirt-dresses. I wanted this design to be modern with just a pinch of amish, it is neo-retro.
The pattern is available in two designs – shirt – or – shirt-dress – and different options and lengths.
- Rounded or pointy collar.
- Kimono or ¾ sleeves.
- Midi length or knee-length for the dress.
- Straight or rounded peplum for the shirt.
