Shoulder Gather Dress – Free Sewing Tutorial

The featured project is a long length dress with softly gathered shoulder detail. By unbuttoning the front, it can also be enjoyed as a casual coat. The fabric used for this dress is from the “Cotte” series. Cotte is a coined word for cottage core, a romantic way of living in the countryside. The nostalgic one-piece dress suits such a relaxed lifestyle – going on a picnic, enjoying embroidering and baking sweets. The easy-to-sew cotton linen sheeting makes it suitable for sewing beginners.
