The Lauren pattern features stunning, gently gathered sleeves and a structured square neckline that can be highlighted with a neckline band. The long buttoned cuff add a touch of elegant retro.
Available as a slightly flared blouse, or as an over-the-knee trapeze dress, its simple shape is the perfect canvas for strong prints, colour blocks, or a precious fabric... Versatile but downright chic!
**There is a video tutorial available for this pattern**
The seam allowances are included in your pattern.
The booklet is in French with English translation.
Sewing level: Intermediate if you are sewing the version without neckband and with the simplified cuff (sleeve band). Advanced if you are sewing the version with the neckband (inlay), the bottom of the sleeve with tear-free slit and the buttoned cuff.
Choice of fabric :
Viscose, fine woollen fabrics for blouses or cotton dresses, tencel, linen, silk and for the blouse version a pretty openwork fabric as well. Rather soft fabrics, which will flatter the work of the shoulder fold and the gathered sleeve. Recommended weight 80 to 220 g/m2 depending on the desired effect, from the very light blouse to the winter blouse in fine wool.
