No question about it, simple is sweet! The most adorable and wearable styles are amazingly easy to construct. This eBook contains patterns and instructions for easy-breezy tops and dresses in sizes 6 months through 8 years. Bodice options include jumper and halter styles that can be made in both empire and natural waist lengths. Strap choices include scrunched elasticized straps, ruffled elasticized straps, and long and short ties. These strap options are all cute, quick, and fastener-free! The skirt has lots of options, as well. You can finish with a simple hem, or add a full ruffle or a contrasting cuff. You can even fold the skirt piece into a double-thickness ruffle for a fast, perky finish. Detailed instructions and size charts are provided so you can make the skirt in the perfect length to get just the top or dress style you are after. And, as always, tiny patterns are included to make matching tops and dresses for dollies.
