Whilst perfect for the office, Joan is also up for a few drinks after work and even likes to go for a fancy dinner every once in a while. And made up in tartan we think she would make the absolute most perfect Christmas Day dress – don’t you? (You can see Lisa’s blackwatch tartan number in her Fabric Haul: September vlog by the way!)

So what do we love about this pattern? Well..!

The fitted shape gives the dress a sassy, feminine feel that the real Joan herself would be proud of.

Designed to hit below the knee, the skirt is semi-fitted with darts and sports a kick pleat at the back hem. The whole dress is fully lined, giving you a gorgeously professional-feeling finish.

With plenty of pattern hacking potential, the Joan Dress can be mix and matched with its Mad Men sister dress, Betty. Combining the Betty Dress bodice with the Joan Dress skirt makes for the perfect slinky party dress, whereas adding Betty’s circle skirt to Joan’s bodice gives you a fun alternative for the office.

Convinced yet? Let’s talk fabrics…

Joan works beautifully in a variety of different woven fabrics. We recommend using a medium weight drapey fabric with some structure – you don’t want to use anything too lightweight and fluid. For the cooler months lightweight wools work gorgeously and suiting fabrics are perfect. Crepes such as our Triple Crepe or Rio Crepe would be stunning. For the lining we like to use rayon, a lightweight crepe de chine or acetate. Check our online shop selection for fabrics we’ve picked specifically for the pattern.

The Joan Dress is available as a printed pattern as well as a downloadable PDF. Both come with with full step-by-step illustrated instructions.
