Double Gauze Dress


So I sewed this dress for Miss S with every intention of sharing with you a detailed tutorial and a free downloadable pattern.  However, as I was sewing it I came across a few hurdles and thought up some fixes to make a better/simpler project. So I’m pondering working on a new pattern and step-by-step DIY that will allow you to make a similar dress.

But in the meantime, I wanted to show you the final product mostly because this fabric is unbelievably gorgeous and I want you all to get some.  It’s a double gauze and so flowy, soft, and cozy.  There are a bunch of beautiful double gauze fabrics also by Kokka still available at Fabricworm, check them out here.

If you’d like me to take another stab at creating a pattern for this dress and sharing a tutorial with you, let me know in the comments.  If you like it, I’ll get to work on it now.
P.S. by “get to work”, I mean scribble a horrible picture and send it to Jacinda to do the actual pattern drafting, HA.

UPDATE: Here’s the (revised) pattern: Prudent Baby Snap Wrap Dress

Please, please, please make a tutorial for that beautiful dress. My little sweetie needs as much girly cuteness as possible with 2 brothers around.

I love this dress. I am just learning to sew so I would love the updated pattern. Through your website, I have fallen in love with Fabricworm. I want to buy everything, but because I am not good at sewing yet, alas, a bulk purchase will have to wait. (insert sigh)

This kind of stuff makes me want to have a little girl so that I can sew for her. I'm afraid that if I make clothes for my friends with girls they would think I was just too weird.

yes please, esp if it doesn't involve a zipper! i have a similar pattern but it has a zipper and it's for heavier material, so the gauze would be nice.

Please, please, please, please… make this into a pattern for us! My two little girls would love to wear a dress like this – plus I'd have all winter to make it for them if you do it soon (it might actually get done)! Thank you!!

This is the perfect cut for a little girl. My girls are bothered by clothes that are too snug around their waists. With this they can let their pot bellies hang out. lol

Hi Jamie! When I click the link to the pattern I get re-directed to a search page. Is the pattern still available?
