Essentials Series Garment Pattern Woven Dress with gathered waist

Sewing with a group of friends is such a satisfying activity. Because of this, we have decided to host a Woven Essentials Sewalong. For this sewalong we are going to make the Woven Essentials Gathered Dress and would love to have you all sew one with us. This dress would be a fun holiday wardrobe piece, and we will be finished before Thanksgiving! Karen LePage has created a lovely site, handmade-wardrobe.com, to house all of the helpful tutorials talked about in The Essentials Series garment patterns. For more pictures and information, check out this post.

This sew along is for the confident beginner to intermediate sewist. You have a knowledge of basic garment making and sewing vocabulary, but are looking for a like-minded tribe to go through the pattern steps with. Or, maybe you have already tried the Basic Woven Dress and you want to see how other people are putting together the different pattern modifications like, gathers and embellishments. We would love you join us.
