Saturday Afternoon Tea Party Dress

Pattern Description:

It's the perfect little dress for any all occassions. Just choose your 2 coordinating fabrics and a few notions and you are ready to sew.

Embellish this dress as little or as much as you would like. If you like monograms and machine applique, add those to your dress before assembling. The more the merrier ! This dress can be worn any time of the year. Wear it as a cute summer and spring jumper dress, or add a cute tee or long sleeve shirt underneath for cooler months. The skie's the limit.

This dress, including the cutting of your fabrics and measuring of your little sweetie , will take less than 3 hours to create, from start to finish.

  • Available in Sizes 6 months to a size 8.
