Introducing the Ines Dress!

Introducing the Ines Dress!

Dear readers,


I am beyond excited to share with you my latest pattern: the Ines Dress. This pattern features an elegant silhouette combined with modern lines, and I could not be happier with how it turned out. This year has been all about growth and improvement at Just Patterns. I am thrilled to have found an amazing team of freelancers, whose support has been invaluable in bringing this sewing pattern to life right on time for all your summer events!

Let me introduce you to the Ines Dress:

Ines is a 90s-inspired paneled dress featuring wide front and back necklines and narrow straps. The fitted bodice, reminiscent of a corset, cinches at the bust and waist before gracefully flaring into a flowing midi length.

Shop Ines 15% off!

The waistline is intentionally a little higher to increase the impression of length and it also helps to give you a little room when eating! 



It is fully lined dress and closes with an invisible zipper and hook-and-eye at the center back. 

Samples are all sewn in linen and lightweight denim, with thin cotton lining. For this pattern, I recommend mid-weight woven fabric with some body such as mid-weight linen, cotton, cotton poplin, linen-cotton blends, linen-viscose blends.


The pattern is drafted for a height of 5'5" (1m65) and available in two size ranges 34-46 with a B/C cup and 46-60 with a DD cup. All pattern pieces are have lengthen/shorten lines and the long princess seams are perfect to make adjustments and achieve the perfect fit!

I wear the red linen and denim versions in size 34 with no alterations. Pauline wears her yellow linen Ines in size 46 (of the 34-46 range) shortened and with the waist relaxed. Lilli wears a baby blue one in size 50 with no alterations.

There are dozens of fun ways you could customize this dress. For my denim version I added double topstitching for mock flat felled seams, you could also topstich each sides, add piping to all the seams, sew narrow french seams with the seam allowances on the outside, etc. And you can of course turn it into a floor length dress or a flirty mini!


This pattern is an intermediate sew, and has some interesting techniques like lining an invisible zipper by machine and the construction of narrow straps with an all-in-one lining/facing. 


The pattern is in English and in French. It includes:

  • Layered PDF pattern in two size ranges and three printing options (print at home for US letter or A4, A0 and projector)
  • a Cutter’s must (a summary table of the pattern pieces and cutting information);
  • PDF layout;
  • Just Patterns’ signature “order of operations” as it comes in handy for experienced sewists who like to refer quickly to steps without scrolling through pages of instructions;
  • and step-by-step illustrated instructions.



Ines is 15% off for a week to celebrate the launch and newsletter subscribers get an additional 10% off the entire store with the code INESPARTY10!

I hope you fall in love with the Ines Dress as much as I have. I would love to see your creations and hear your thoughts. Please share your photos by tagging #JPInesDress and @Just Patterns on Instagram.

Happy sewing!

Hey. Do you have a video showing how to flip the dress inside out? I’m having trouble with that (step no.11)
