The Romey Gathered Dress & Top pattern is inspired by Sew House Seven's beloved Remy Raglan pattern. Beginning with the signature Remy keyhole neckline and loose fit, the waistline is shortened into an elegant empire waist with a gathered skirt or peplum and billowy gathered sleeves at bracelet length. Both dress versions include patch pockets.

Note: The size ranges have been drafted from different blocks. The standard size range (sizes 00 – 20) is fit on a base size 8 that is approximately 5’6″ – 5’7″ (168 – 170 cm) tall and grades very slightly in height. It is fit on a B/C cup. The curvy size range (sizes 16 – 34) is fit on a base size 24 that is approximately 5’6″ – 5’7″ (168 – 170 cm) tall and does not grade in height. Cup sizes may be offered for C/D, E/F and G/H depending on the style. There are differences between the curvy and standard sizes 16 – 20. The shoulders on the curvy sizes are narrower, the cups are fuller, and the tummy and hips are rounder than for the standard sizes.
