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.

Model notes: Heather is 5'-7" and wears a size 12 from the 0-20 size range. 

This pattern includes a printed paper pattern plus an instruction booklet guiding you through the sewing process step by step.
