Closet Core Patterns Jo Dress and Jumpsuit

$15 $36.90

Make a true statement with the Jo Dress + Jumpsuit. A V-necked bodice with a sculptural “croissant” sleeve is the star of the show and can be mixed and matched with your choice of pants or skirt to create a bold dress or jumpsuit. Featuring a beautiful and innovative bias-bound slot seam finish to add structure and dimension, Jo is an engaging sew with a big impact.

The bodice for both views features a rounded, cut-on sleeve — choose between the large sleeve with an exaggerated rounded shape, or the small sleeve with a less dramatic silhouette. The bodice is shaped with darts in the front and a comfortable elastic waist in the back, and the neckline and outer sleeve seams are finished with our unique slot seam finish. Both views are finished with a traditional zipper and fabric zipper pull to make it easy to get on and off.

  • View A is a dress with a midi-length straight-cut skirt, front darts, a bias-bound center slit, and curved front pockets.
  • View B is a jumpsuit with a tapered leg, front darts, and curved front pockets.

Pattern Difficulty: Advanced

This is a multi sized pattern including sizes 0-20.

Recommended Fabric : To create stability and structure for this design, we suggest stable midweight wovens such as linen, cotton broadcloth, sateen, ikat, and chambray. You may also use lightweight denim and twill provided it has some degree of drape.
