Gathered dress pattern
This lovely and simple gathered dress is for a comfortable everyday dress but doesn’t compromise on the pretty factor that every little girl loves. An easy girls dress perfect for summer!
This gathered frock is super simple and easy to make, with a roomy gathered skirt, perfect for the active little girls (like my little munchkin) and a short, loose bodice which allows the body to “breathe”, great for those long, hot summer days.
I love how the gathers add just enough fullness to this dress and I’m totally smitten with the little flowers vs. polka dot fabric combination. I think it makes this gathered dress look even more girly and pretty. This is also an easy to customize pattern, in terms of fabric choice and additional details like pockets, neckline, sleeve etc.
This project is quite a straightforward sew, although gathering takes a little while. If you’ve never sewn dresses before, this simple gathered dress, designed with comfort in mind, is a great place to start!
