Get shirring with the Cassie Dress!

If you're after a pretty make, our Cassie Dress is for you! With her fully shirred bodice, bound neckline, gathered tier skirt and gently puffed sleeves, Cassie is one for the cottagecore lovers out there. This shirr-tactic dress was previously only available to our Premium Stitch School subscribers, but is now available as a stand-alone PDF pattern!

Choose between two sleeve lengths: just above the elbow, or full length, both styles include an elasticated hem. Cassie is midi length, but you could omit the second skirt tier to make her knee-length, if you prefer. Additional elastic is sewn in at the waist, to ensure your pretty dress maintains its shape.
