The Hinterland Dress offers a timeless, comfortable, and elegant silhouette. Featuring three sleeve lengths, full, half, or placket-free options, customizable length, and inseam pockets, this is a pattern workhorse that spans the seasons.
The fit of the Hinterland Dress is loose, with side bust darts and a gathered skirt with optional waist ties, and is easily modified for maternity and nursing. Don’t feel like buttons? Cut the front bodice on the fold for a placket-free look. You might consider lengthening the bodice and hacking it into an adorable cropped top, too!
This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners. You will learn how to sew bust darts, bias facings, inseam pockets, button plackets, and inset sleeves.

The Hinterland Dress is designed for woven fabrics. Look for mid-weight linen, silk noil, cotton ikat, and light- to mid-weight chambray or denim. Note that if you want to extend the skirt length beyond the provided midi length, you will need to purchase extra fabric. Additional fabric is also required if you have a directional fabric or will be pattern matching.
