Ooh la la! French Gypsy is a 1950s inspired dress, and she’s our best-seller in her namesake country! Featuring a gathered bust, elastic on- or off-the-shoulder neckline, nipped-in raised waist and flattering full skirt, Gypsy now also offers a Summery tie-strap option.

French Gypsy Dress Instructions – French


Take her for a country walk in cottons and prints, or take her to the prom in satin – French Gypsy handles any occasion with savoir-faire. The clever pleated bust both enhances smaller busts and flatters larger ones, with the ruched shoulder detail providing a pleasing balance. The panels that make up Gypsy offer a number of tantalising options for customisation and embellishment, and the wide skirt is the perfect canvas for a contrasting fabric or embroidery. Superbly changeable, Gypsy can suit a range of occasions, styles, colours and fabrics: deep hues in dupion silk give her a burlesque aesthetic straight from the Moulin Rouge, whilst ribbon straps and pastel gingham make her the picture of yellow-brick-road innocence, with the whole spectrum in between! What will you make of her?

    The pattern works brilliantly, true sizing and the instructions are easy to read, have photographs to help make things very clear. If you haven’t tried a Sew La Di Da pattern do, they are a lovely British brand!
