The Kinfolk Dress pattern by Jennifer Lauren Handmade has bohemian 40s style at its heart. Part kaftan, part wrap-style dress, slip Kinfolk over your head and wrap the front waist ties around to the back to cinch in the silhouette however you please.

With princess seam shaping from the shoulder down over the bust, a panelled centre front bodice, and six gored skirt, Kinfolk is your everyday throw-on dress that will take you from beach cover-up to BBQ dinner in no time.

For hips and waist is pretty easy to make, an optional step is included at the end to add elastic into the back waist seam to help keep gathers even underneath the ties during wear.


  • The Original includes sizes 6-24 with A to D cup bodices.  Bust from 74cm (29 1/8") to 119cm (46 7/8") and hip from 89.5cm (35 1/4") to 134.5cm (52 7/8")
  • The Curve includes sizes 16 to 34 with C to F cup bodices.  Bust from 99cm (39") to  114cm (56 3/4") and hip 114.5cm (45 1/8") to 159.5cm (62 3/4")
