The Wilder Gown
The Wilder Gown is a loose, flowy, tiered dress that can be sewn up in a bunch of different ways! It has raglan sleeves and ties up at the neck. It is easy to sew and is perfect for drapey woven fabrics. The Wilder Gown can be made as a top or dress, long or short sleeved, with one skirt tier or two. The design is fairly modular so it is easy to customize to your vision!
The desire to make an amazing gown (or top)
You will get a different look depending on the type of fabric you select. A drapey rayon or silk will give it a more elegant dressy look, while a more sturdy fabric like a linen will give you a structured everyday dress. We encourage you to be creative and daring with fabric! It would look amazing in a cotton voile, rayon challis, or chiffon.
FINDING YOUR SIZE:
The fit of the Wilder is loose and flowy with a lot of ease. It fits kind of like a nightgown. If you are making the gown, the waist seam is designed to hit just below your bust. The short sleeve option is on the longer side and the hem hits a couple inches above your elbow. The length is designed to be a long midi. This pattern was drafted for a B cup and a height of 5’5” (1,65m). It was tested and found suitable for a variety of cup sizes and includes instructions for a simple full bust adjustment.
