This dress pattern has been a true labor of love. The design itself was born out of inspiration from a beautiful, vibrant fabric that I found and the desire to make something truly unique and amazing for my niece Irelyn. I began pulling colors from the main print and mixing various fabrics together and soon after my vision became a reality. I've created many versions of this dress and after many requests I decided to publish the pattern for it. Originally created in 2009, I'm proud to now offer this pattern to the public.
Featuring cascading ruffles peaking out of the skirt flowing down the front, this dress is sure to be a showstopper! The generous bodice and skirt both offer a large area that can showcase a beautiful fabric print or accommodate an applique design or monogram. The straps fit through built-in loops in the back for a secure fit and then tie into a beautiful large bow across the back. The back of the bodice features elastic for a custom fit every time.
