Gwen has been a customer favorite for years, and is now available in womens as well! I is such a classic summer style!  The Gwen dress and top can feature either a sweetheart or straight bodice. Both versions button up the front, however the back elastic casing allows for the use of either real buttons and buttonholes or stationary buttons. The straps also have two options; fixed or tie back.

The skirt is full and can be sewn in four lengths: top length, mini length, knee length or midi length. Rectangle pockets polish off this look!

Used for Dorothy costume

I used this pattern with blue gingham, and it made the sweetest Dorothy costume for my 6 year old (and we’ll get a lot of wear out of it next summer, too, I’m sure). The pattern was so simple to use. I’ve already ordered another for a holiday dress!

Beautiful pattern, sizing not quite right.

This was a gorgeous, fun and easy pattern; however, the sizing is really off. I measured my daughter three times and followed the instructions to a T. The bodice ended up too small and the straps too short. Luckily, I had just enough of my custom printed fabric to cut another bodice and straps, sizing up two extra sizes in both the bodice and straps, but keeping the original skirt. In the end, the bodice was a tad large and straps a smidge long. It would be great if they adjusted the sizing chart. Until then, size up ONE SIZE in the bodice and straps. Skirt was just fine!

Gwen’s Dress

This dress did require some tweaking to make it fit my girls. I found it pretty small. And the straps to be a bit long. But I sized up in the bodice and took out some in the length of the straps and it fits perfectly. I absolutely love this dress!!! I would have given it 5 stars if it were not for the sizing issues.

I need help with attaching the skirt to the elastic back

I love the pattern however I had trouble attaching the skirt to the elastic back. Are there any markings I can make to keep the gathering and stretching gathering evenly on the long piece in the back of the skirt.

Nice pattern

Just disappointed there’s no AO file at least so I can have it printed. It’s just sitting on my hard drive.

Confused

I bought this with great expectations, but I made the size 3 and couldn’t get the bodice over my daughter’s head. I’m an experienced seamstress, so I’m not suite sure what went wrong, but for the work that I put into it, I didn’t feel like trying again.

Gwen dress

Made this for my 4 year old granddaughter. She loves dresses and this fit her beautifully. The construction was easy and directions clear. The only thing I altered was the size of the pockets. I felt they were a little oversized for the garment. Will definitely make this again.
