Come rain or shine, whatever the season or occasion, we’ll choose to wear jersey if we can! Comfortable, flattering and available in a myriad of tempting colours and prints, this versatile fabric is a staple of both our sewing stash and our handmade wardrobe. Sew mix and match jersey staples with The Fold Line‘s two-in-one Jenny pattern in UK sizes 6-20, which can be made as a layered dress or a open-back top.
- 2-in-1 pattern: The open back top can be attached to the dress or made to wear separately
- Easyfit: The top finishes at the waist for a comfortable fit
- Modern style: The dress has a relaxed silhouette with an empire waist seam.
- Simple to sew: the dress ad to feature grown-on sleeves and no fiddly fastenings
