Gathered Dress – The Avid Seamstress. A casual dress that you can live in any day of the week and feel good wearing. The gathered dress has been created with the modern woman in mind. From the school run to the office, the gathered dress will help you to feel stylishly smart yet comfortable. For the adult version, we’ve added a more modern raglan sleeve but have kept the charming gathered waist at the back – an interesting and different style line, and ideal for days when you don’t feel like wearing fitted clothes. Other features include a slim front silhouette, invisible zip and two different sleeve lengths. We’ve also added in a pleat at the shoulder to create an amazing finish. It’s an ideal pattern for beginners as well as intermediates that want a quick, easy sew.
This pattern is also available as a child’s dress. The Gathered Dress is a gorgeous girls dress for ages 3-8 years. A T-shaped dress with the sleeves formed as part of the front/back which makes it really fun and easy to sew. The front has a cute oversized pocket and the back has a gathered section at the waist.
View A has a button close at the back neck.
View B has an invisible zip close at the back neck.
Always allow extra fabric to match one-way designs.
View B – Fabric, thread, 22cm/8″ invisible zipper (ensure your sewing machine has a zipper foot)
