The Precious Dress has a sweet, timeless design that is oh-so versatile. It can be made with fun cotton prints for comfortable play and a whimsical look. For dress up, special occasion fabrics can be used to make a formal delight. It is a great style for applique, embroidery, and embellishment with beautiful trims.
The bodice can be made in an empire or natural-waist length. It can be sleeveless, or have puffy sleeves. For the neckline, a Peter Pan collar can be attached, or it can be left collarless. For a snugger fit, ties can be sewn into the bodice at the sides. As an alternative to ties, a sweet apron can be added.
This eBook contains the patterns and instructions to make a classic dress in sizes 3 months - 10 years. The placket is enclosed, so the buttons and buttonholes do not show. This gives a crisp, clean finished appearance to the back of the dress.
Detailed sizing information is given so you will get a great fit and just the length you are after. As a bonus, matching dolly-sized patterns are provided in a supplemental file.
