The Laneway Dress blends comfort, whimsy and the unexpected into one perfectly tailored dress. With a sleek yet easy to wear 1940s A-line silhouette, Laneway will be your go-to dress for everyday adventures and beyond. Double open-ended darts shape the waist and bust for a flattering fit and the distinctive asymmetrical or centred collar is built into the facing of the bodice, meaning no extra pattern pieces or tricky construction techniques are required.
With B, C & D cups included as well as clever inset pockets and a graceful V back neckline, Laneway is a perfect project for intermediate seamstresses. Multiple cup sizes you say? Yes! Laneway includes front bodice pieces for B, C & D cups as well as fitting advice and instructions on how to choose the correct size for a personalised fit. No more bust adjustments, yay!
Skill Level Laneway is aimed at intermediate seamstresses, though if you have a few woven garments under your belt and want to dive right in, then this might just be the dress for you. Set-in sleeves, zip insertion, integrated collar facings and inset pockets are all techniques you will learn with the Laneway Dress.
The Bonus Classic Neckline Pattern Laneway is the perfect everyday dress, but sometimes having a distinctive collar might not be what you’re after. Included with your original Laneway Dress pattern is the bonus Classic Neckline pattern. The classic Laneway Dress is constructed in exactly the same way as the original except there is no collar in sight, just a perfectly shaped neckline dipping just below your collar bone.
