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.
This pattern works well in most light weight to medium weight fabrics. For a Spring/Summer dress use a thin cotton and for Autumn/Winter a medium weight fabric is ideal.
View A – Fabric, thread, hand needle, 10cm narrow satin ribbon, button (1-2cm)
View B – Fabric, thread, 22cm/8″ invisible zipper (ensure your sewing machine has a zipper foot)
