Girl's Shirred Dress Pattern 2-10 years Detail

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Machine sewing
  • All steps are thoroughly explained with photos and descriptions
  • Could also be suitable for a beginner if you're happy to learn shirring from the tutorial that's included

Pattern Description:

This PDF sewing pattern will teach you how to make a Peasant Dress with sleeves and pretty shirring across the chest for a girl sizes 2 to 10 years.

The skirt has a gathered ruffle along the bottom with a ribbon stitched on to. The top is shirred across the chest with gathered neckline and puffed gathered sleeves. Easy to play and run around in, it's a lovely dress for any little girl!

With colour step-by-step photographs and detailed instructions it is suitable for every sewer from beginner to advanced. The sewing pattern can be printed as many times as you like so you can make a whole range of dresses in different fabrics if you wish to.

All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required... and no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at!

The PDF girl's peasant dress tutorial includes instructions for shirring so if you haven't done it before you will soon know how, clear descriptive photos for every step, computer drawn printable pattern pieces for sizes 2 to 10 years, instructions on how to cut the pattern out and simple, step by step instructions to complete your top.
