The Hepburn Inspired Audery Dress

Inspired by the iconic style of the 1940's and the favoured design ideals of none other than Miss Audrey Hepburn, the Audrey pattern will create a chic shift dress that will take your timeless wardrobe vogue to the next level. Both easy to make and minimalistic in design, the wide boat neck and cap sleeves create a truly classic look. Why not construct this piece using a medium weight navy wool blend fabric and then team the dress with white heels, a matching clutch and some simple pearls to embody the lovely Audrey, at her finest.

CREATIVE TIPS

The perfect pattern for beginner sewers, the Audrey is a great introductory piece when starting on the road to dress making. Featuring few panels and fully utilising facings to negate the need for lining, the only difficult element of the Audrey dress is the centre back invisible zip. Constructing this piece using a medium weight wool blend or mohair material will create a luxuriously warm winter dress, whereas a stiffer, more breathable cotton will create a cool, crisp summer garment that is sure to turn heads.
