This PDF file includes graded patterns to fit sizes 18m to a 6 youth, and 16 pages of instructions with both photographs and illustrations, for clarity.
This easy fitting A-line dress has an elastic collar, waist shirring, and some sneaky tricks along the way to make it look professional. There are no itchy raw edges inside, and the directions include pocket suggestions as well as shirring tips. This dress pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner, or one who is willing to make a test garment first.
Fabric choices can completely change the look of this dress, from playful to preppy, from retro to kitschy. Because of the center panel, this dress is very mix and match, and the leftover contrast fabric can make an easy pair of bloomers (pattern not included) for underneath.
