We’ve been teasing this pattern for a while now. But I promise that the wait has been SO worth it because these new dresses are stunning! Let’s talk about the Gala Gowns!
The Gala Gown is a beautiful dress with options that will suit your preferences every time for any season! It includes tank, cap sleeve, 3/4 and long sleeves. You can choose from knee length, floor length or floor length with a front slit. The bodice features flattering princess seaming on the front and back and is lined for an easy v neckline! The adult pattern comes with a high and low v neck option for both front and back, which you can mix and match.
You can’t leave out the pocket either! Perfect for your large phone, keys, lipstick, or just somewhere perfect to keep your hands all night! Finally some pockets big enough to carry everything we need while we’re looking drop dead gorgeous, am I right?!
The Gala Gown is drafted for stable knits like stretch lace, ponte, scuba, liverpool, techno, stretch velvet, french terry, etc.
