Hinterland Dress Pattern

$16.00

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.

This is a PDF sewing pattern, available to download immediately after purchase. (What is a PDF pattern?)

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!

It is part of the Sedimentary Capsule, and pairs well with Sew Liberated’s Metamorphic Dress, Arenite Pants, Gypsum Skirt, and Strata Top.

This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners. You will learn how to sew bust darts, bias facings, inseam pockets, button plackets, and inset sleeves.

This pattern is a digital PDF for download. Pattern pieces for Women’s sizes 0-34 are tiled for home printing, or can be printed full-size at a copy shop. (What is a PDF pattern?)

Fabric

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.

You can conveniently find fabric and notions in one neat bundle from EWE Fine Fiber Goods.
