Madeleine Dress
by Garmenter Follow

The Madeleine Dress is a full-length dress, with a fitted bodice and princess-line seams instead of darts, a widened and lowered neckline with facing, short sleeves with facing, gathering along the waistline on the skirt-piece, in-seam pockets, back slit, and an invisible CB zip opening.

Of course, Madeleine was made with our basic Garmenter Pattern, which has been altered into this particular dress design.

    I just checked out your site and got super excited...until I checked your sizes...hopefully as your company grows (and I know it will because your concept is AMAZING) you will be able to add larger sizing :-)

     Thanks for the compliment! We're so with you on this one, but we just have to get started somewhere to then develop into everything we aspire to be. A wider size range is definitely high in our priority list, though, so don't forget us just yet :-)

    This is absolutely gorgeous. Love that pattern. And the fabric! Where did you get that from?

    Garmenter replied 7 years ago

    Isn't this fabric amazing? I got it at this shop in Stockholm called Tygverket. They have a web-shop (, but I don't think they stock this particular one there :-(

    Thanks for sharing the link. What a great shop. I need to learn some Swedish:)
