The versatile Lichen Duster can be worn as a lightweight coat, wrap dress, or robe - a true capsule wardrobe workhorse!
Its shawl collar, princess seams, unique pockets, four skirt gores and hand-stitched facings make it a beautiful heirloom piece.
Style it over dresses and jumpsuits, or jeans and tees. Use your own belt or wrap the included fabric belt around your waist, tucking in the ends, for a chic morning-to-evening dress.
The Lichen can be made with a sweeping high-low hem or a straight hem.

Skill Level: Intermediate (If someone has sewn the Hinterland Dress, they should be equipped to sew the Lichen)
The pattern helps sewists practice many skills, including shawl collar construction, princess seams, French seams, facings, and hand finishing.

Sizes: The pattern includes sizes 0-30
*See images for more sizing information.

Suggested Fabrics: Depending on the fabric you choose, the Lichen Duster can be worn in cold or warm weather. It is unlined, constructed with front and back facings of the same fabric. We recommend mid-weight linen or yarn-dyed cotton for all-season wear. More advanced sewists can branch out and choose mid-weight wool or even silk or silk velvet.

Additional Supplies:

  • Lightweight fusible interfacing: 1 yard (90cm) if you choose to interface the full front facings and the back facing
    OR four x 1"x1" (2.5cm x 2.5cm) squares of interfacing if you choose the spot- interface stress points only
  • Optional: 4 yds of Wondertape
  • Optional: lightweight seam binding/double fold bias tape 5/8" wide to bind the facing edge.
