Inspired by Mary Quant and all things sixties, Clothesline presents the Mary Q Shift dress pattern. This classic style is listed in Erin McKean's field guide to the most iconic styles of our time, "The Hundred Dresses."
In true classic style, a version of the Mary Quant dress can be updated and in fashion at any time as these 2014 versions show.
The Mary Q Shift pattern is:-
*fully lined *reversible *adapted to longer skirt lengths. Not everyone has the legs for a mini skirt! This pattern has been made a little longer (knee length on me at 160cm (5'3") tall) so that you can cut it to a length you're comfortable with.
*easy to sew for all levels. Great seamstresses can use the one-page cheat sheet for instructions. If you like more visuals, there are 16 colour photos and on-line explanations. For raw beginners, tricky parts have an accompanying video to spell it out in detail.
