The Gin and Tonic Dress is a real eye-catcher! This is a flattering A-line dress, with a unique “grown-on” wrap detail. It is designed to be made in two contrasting fabrics, but looks equally lovely in a single colour.
The dress closes with an invisible zipper, and features a lovely wide neckline.

Skill Level:

The construction is quite straightforward, though beginners may find the invisible zipper a little challenging. Detailed sewing instructions are included.

I love my dress! As a fairly new sewer, I didn't have any issues following the pattern, it was very straightforward. I have broad shoulders, so I went a size up on the bodice and extended the sleeves and it turned out perfect! I couldn't be happier. I feel beautiful in this dress and I can't wait to wear it for summer! It is my favorite sewing project so far. Thank you!

I just finished sewing this!!! The photo really isn’t doing it justice, but this is a GREAT pattern. This dress is one of those projects that comes together well and is so flattering that it makes me feel so clever AND beautiful! I can’t tell you how much I needed that. Thanks for the great pattern!
