Difficulty Level = Advanced Beginner

This free girls dress sewing pattern is perfect for a beginner and includes detailed step-by-step instructions and full size print-at-home pattern pieces.

This relaxed but stunning party dress can be made in 4 lengths (maxi, midi, knee, and a shorter above knee length) and in either woven or knit fabric. The knit and woven versions each have slightly different instructions and pattern pieces. The knit version  is more form fitting in its cut and just pulls on over the head. The woven version has more ease in the  cut and has an invisible zipper in the side seam. 

There are two styles to the back. You can either have it so the back is completely open to the waist, or stitched half way up the back and then open to the neck. The back then fastens with either a ribbon or a  thread loop around a single button.
