Staff Made — Charlotte's Gathered Wrap Dress
Mar 30 2023

Charlotte, who's a member of our Online Store team, recently finished this glorious checked Gathered Wrap Dress from Trend Patterns. Trend Patterns is a UK-based independent pattern brand inspired by luxury, high-end fashion looks, and seasonal trends, that are seen on the catwalks of New York, London, Milan and Paris.

The Gathered Wrap Dress has two views, and Charlotte chose View A, the wrap dress which uses self-made ties to fasten. View B is a plain gathered skirt and single front bodice with no opening that you can simply throw on over your head. This pattern also has two different sleeve shapes, as well as an oversized on-trend collar that can be sewn with or without a frill.

The difficulty level of this pattern is noted as 'easy' and it's best suited for light to medium-weight woven fabric styles like the Small Cotton Check - Adriatic that Charlotte picked.

"I love a big collar moment so this pattern stood out to me! The only alteration I made was swapping out the ties at the wrist for a cuff."
