Sew Straight and Gather’s Uptown/Downtown Dress


Guys, I feel like this dress needs a little drumroll… Introducing the new and improved Uptown/Downtown Dress!!!


Terri at Sew Straight and Gather has taken one of her most popular patterns and made it even better!  To kick off the relaunch you can grab the pattern on sale for a steal of only $5 (CAD) or bundle it with the ladies for only $10 CAD (that’s a huge bargain for us in the US). You can see my ladies version here (I NEED a maxi version stat!).


She totally redid the pattern and tutorial and it is AMAZING!


All the options are still there- multiple sleeve lengths and tank options, knee and maxi lengths, cowl, pockets, and lining choices too!  This pattern is jam-packed!


I love the sleek fit and clean neckline finish.


The inside of this dress looks almost as good as the outside.  Terri has the best finishing techniques.


Can you tell she loves it too?!!! This just suits my lil princess so well- comfy yet sophisticated.

I love the styling options with this pattern. It’s so easy to dress it up or make it super casual too.

We had a ton of fun just walking and taking pics for this shoot- super casual and she was so relaxed.  That always leads to the best pictures and these are some of my favs.


Even when she stopped to pout for a minute, she still managed to nail the shot!


After killing this shoot I asked her how old she was because she was posing like a pro.  Love this dress and lil girly!
