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!


  • Matching thread

  • Safety pin

  • 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.


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.

    A lovely pattern which is easy and quick to make. Super straight forward to customise to your own requirements too. I added a lining and shortened the layers and it only took about 6 hours to make. I will be using it again.

    Wilder Gown

    I really like the neckline of this and it has made a gorgeous blouse. However, it has been a lesson in what suits me, as the dress is too big and baggy on me as I have a small frame.
    It is a very easy pattern, with great instructions, so I will probably make the blouse again.
