Inspired by working women, with a dash of the Twenties. The Factory Dress slips over the head, features pockets and ready-rolled up sleeves. The Factory dress is 'easy fit' so use the bust measurement only for sizing.

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Skill level - beginner.

Fabric suggestions - linen, linen blends, tencel, cotton chambray, very fine wool or corduroy.

Paper vs PDF

If you order a paper copy you will be sent a printed version of our pattern. If you select PDF you are purchasing a digital file. PDF's will include a tiled, an A0 copy shop file and your instructions. The tiled file can be used on any home printer, and is compatible with both A4 and US letter paper. You just need to print out the sheets and stick them together following the guide. Alternatively you can send off the copy shop file to be printed full size; we can usually recommend someone in your area. If you are in the UK we would recommend either The Fold Line or Net Printer. The instructions can either be printed at home or simply follow along on your computer or phone.

You will need

Matching thread.

Lightweight interfacing - 0.35M.
