The Avid Seamstress - The Gathered Dress Adult
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 (see the kids version here), a modern raglan sleeve has been added while keeping 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. There is also 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.
