Want to make your own clothes but feeling a little intimidated? The Wilder Gown from Friday Pattern Company is the perfect place to start!

The Wilder Gown is a raglan sleeve dress/top that is pulled in and tied at the neckline. It can be made as a long two tiered dress, a single tier short dress, or a top! (In this class we'll go over how to make the dress) The pattern also includes options to make it short or long sleeved. The Wilder is as comfortable as it is cute and it's modular design lends itself well to customization. You'll want to make this pattern again and again.
