This is the perfect dress for young girls that are wishing for more grown up clothing (tweens) It has a mixture of the straight lines and simplicity of a grown up dress but still has the smocking that we love to make. However for those who don't smock, there is also an option for making the dress with a gathered front instead. There are also 2 options for the back. You can either make it with a zipper back or for fast dressing make it with a shirred elastic back. Try different fabrics to get different looks.
