Prepare to Sew

Sew a dress for your next party—one you’ll want to twirl in year after year.

Frankie is a woven dress with a memorable silhouette, perfect for florals, jewel tones, or even a little sparkle. This dress has a fitted waist yoke and 6-gore gathered skirt. The V-neck is finished with a facing and lined yoke that gathers slightly below the shoulders. The sleeves are full length with elastic at the hem, and it keeps a sleek fit with an invisible zipper at the side seam.

Meet Your Instructor

Before we dive in, meet Lindsey, your instructor for this sewalong. Lindsey is the host of the sewing YouTube channel, Inside The Hem. What started off as a hobby with her two best friends in 2015, has blossomed into a brand with thousands of followers across all social media platforms from all across the world.

In addition to her popular YouTube videos, Lindsey teaches sewing classes in her hometown of Charlotte, NC and online through SIY Sew It Yourself TV, a project from Free Spirit Fabrics.

Also, Lindsey creates a downloadable workbook for each of her sewalongs. The workbook includes shopping lists, to-do lists, and checklists to help you stay organized throughout the entire project. You can get this workbook on her YouTube channel, and it’s a fun way to stay organized as we sew together!

About the Pattern

Fabric and Fit

Fabric recommendations: Look for lightweight or medium-weight woven fabrics such as linen, chambray, batiste, lawn, voile, rayon challis, cupro, and Tencel. If you want more swish, pick something with body, like Tencel. Pick something more crisp like lawn if you want a more structured silhouette.
