My Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress

Added Jan 7, 2013

Helsinki, Finland






This is my first project from Sewing Vintage Modern book – Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress. Being a huge fan of pretty dresses this pattern was perfect for me. Instructions were easy to follow and this dress was overall very simple to make.

I used fabric that is 50% wool and 50% linen. Since these pictures of the dress did not show how pretty this fabric really is I added one photo showing only the white and blue fabric. Sadly the dress looks more like grey in these photos :)

Material Notes

50% wool – 50% linen, invisible zipper and light interfacing




Spring, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Linen, Wool

    Beautiful dress. Love the neckline ! The fabric is very nice, good thing you did a close up because the pictures really don’t do the fabric justice
