Wrap & Gather Dressing Gowns - PDF Sewing Pattern by Cassandra Ellis

With a design rooted in our favourite era, this dressing gown is elegant and extremely comfortable to wear. With a shaped or gathered fit, wrist-grazing sleeves and deep pockets, it’s the kind of gown we always wanted, but could never find.

Our passion is home, so our sizing is based on comfort and ease. Using a tape measure, take your measurements – it’s most accurate when wearing pants and a simple bra. Measure your bust around the fullest part. Measure your waist at the narrowest part. Finally, measure your hips at their fullest point.

Fabric Suggestions

Light to mid weight cotton and linen will work well as will a soft fine wool. Silks that have body and drape are also perfect. The examples are in a medium silk habotai, cotton voile and vintage silk sari.
