Gathered dress with pussy bow collar

4.5/5

An interesting pattern that is perfect to be used with a special fabric, either with a bold print or texture, given the minimum number of seam lines. Lace would also look great!

To draft it, start from a copy of your basic dress with darts and 10cm ease at bust, with matching sleeve.

Step 1

First, adjust length 5cm above the knee.

Then raise back neckline and shoulder line by 3cm and front by 1,5cm, then draw the deep V neckline from neckline midpoint to center front (3 to 5cm below bust line).

Step 2

Drop armpit point by 5 to 6cm and move it outwards by 2 to 4cm to increase wearing ease.

Redraw front and back armhole and measure the lines.

Step 3

Trace a copy of the new front and back, then draw 3 vertical slash lines on each piece – start from neckline/shoulder line all the way to hemline.

Cut through the lines.
