Pictures of the New Girls' Gathered Dress!

I made these dresses for my granddaughters from a pattern my daughter created just for me! I'll be offering ready-made dresses with both short and long sleeves in sizes 2 to 10. I just wanted to share a sneak peek. These are really cute over pantaloons (which I'll also be offering).


The dress on the left has a regular empire waistline; the one on the right has a high empire.

Belle gives her dress a twirl to show off the skirt!

The bodice backs are gathered, too.

This little cowgirl got a fit of the giggles when we took pictures!

Side view, showing the puffed sleeves with self-ruffle.

This pattern gives a beautiful Regency/Jane Austen era look but in an easy-wear format. Elastic casings in the neckline, waistline, and sleeves make this garment one even a toddler can pull on (no buttons or zippers!). Eventually, I'll be offering this as an ePattern you can purchase for instant download if you'd like to make your own dresses. Stay tuned!

Thank you, Lindsay!

  2. Hello,
    How much do you charge for these dresses and pantaloons? I have two daughters one a size 8 and the other sized 4. I inherited my mothers sewing machine and (with 4 kids and one on the way) I have not had the time or stamina to learn how to sew. I am much distressed at the unavailability of long, pretty dresses for my girls(that is without having to pay an arm and a leg at Srtausburgh). Would you please email me with your price?

    Thank you!

  4. I was so excited to come across your page from your daughters on the Sensibility newsletter! Absolutely a beautiful blog!! I can't wait until the pattern for this dress. My youngest (who is 3) loves to wear her cowgirl boots with her dresses too! This is a darling dress! Have a beautiful weekend!
