May Garden Gathered Skirt Kit

Kit Choices
  • May Garden is a pull over sleeveless knit dress or jumper in sizes 3-12. Sized close enough to the body to be worn as a sleeveless dress; it also has enough ease to allow for a blouse or turtleneck to be worn under it in cooler weather. May Garden comes with 2 bodice neck variations; a boat neck (View A) and a scoop neck (View B). The skirt of May Garden may be smocked or gathered. The skirt of May Garden is specifically sized to be smocked with knits. The pattern includes directions on how to sew the pattern with and without a serger. A smocking plate and directions are included as well as step by step directions and photos of each of the smocking stitches. May Garden is also available as a printed pattern, a PDF download pattern, and a kit for the smocked version (comes with pre-pleated skirt!)
