The Doris Dress Sewing Pattern
Sew Over It
Hey there intermediate sewists with experience inserting a concealed zip, meet Doris!
You can make your Doris Dress in sizes 8 to 20.
Size 8: Bust 33″ (82cm) Waist 26″ (66cm) Hip 36″ (91.5cm)
Size 20: Bust 45″ (114cm) Waist 38″ (97cm) Hip 48″ (122cm)
Sew Over It recommends a lightweight woven fabric for the Doris Dress, ideally with a good amount of drape. The skirt and grown-on sleeves will hang best if the fabric has some drape. Think rayon, viscose and crepe. However the Doris Dress also works beautifully in cotton, so if you’re not experienced sewing with drapey fabrics and would prefer to use something more stable, you could try a cotton lawn, poplin, or a lightweight linen.Our lovely spotted cotton poplin would make a fab Doris!

Talented Lisa also is the author of 2 fantastic sewing books. In order to spread her passion for sewing and hoping to inspire people to take up the craft, she started Sew Over It in 2011.
