The Avid Seamstress – The Gathered Dress Sewing Pattern

If you‘re looking for a casual dress that you can live in any day of the week and feel good wearing, then The Gathered Dress Sewing Pattern is perfect for you.

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 a dart 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.
