Pattern Description:

My daughter loves to dress pretty and play hard. I designed The Desert Rose Dress & Tunic for the days we go from church to park, so she could wear a cute dress that functioned well for both occasions!

The Desert Rose features an empire waist, scooped neckline, and button closure in the front. The full skirt is perfect for twirling, includes optional in-seam pockets, and hits at the knee. It's perfect for Spring and Summer wear, and can be worn in the Fall and Winter over a long-sleeve t-shirt.

An optional chest ruffle is included for girls who like an extra touch of girly. Full instructions are provided with photographs and illustrations, making this dress and easy and satisfying sew. This dress takes approximately 3-4 hours from start to finish.
