Pattern Description:

Sometimes, it's difficult for petite girls to find clothes that fit. This dress has a ruffle-hem, and puff-sleeves, and is designed to enhance the bust. It has a narrow shoulder line, and is available only in sizes 32, 34, and 36.

The model dress is made with crushed velvet, but any kind of elastic fabric will work with this style. Cotton and viscose jersey make the dress fit for everyday wear, and elastic satin will give it a more festive feel.

The download (2,8M) includes a pattern sheet with the dress in sizes 32-36, and a fully illustrated sewing tutorial. The tutorial is written in Finnish and English.
