Description

Perfect for all those holiday parties coming up, this girls party dress pattern has lots of options so you can dress it up or down! Closures are buttons/snaps at the shoulders and a side invisible zip so its easy to get your child into and out of the dress. All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing or hidden. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required. That said, if you have a serger, tips are included for when and where to use it if you wish to.

This is the child’s version but it’s also available as a matching ladies pattern so you can even do matching “Mommy and Me” dresses! Get the ladies version here.

Options –

  • 2 optional netting/tulle layers,
  • An optional sash with bow, plain waistband or no waist detail

Fabrics –

  • Your dress & contrast fabrics need to be woven (eg cotton, linen, satin). It can be any weight however best results & fit will be achieved with light to medium weight fabric. If you go for a very heavy fabric you may find some seams bulky and/or the fit a bit tighter than expected.
  • Your lining fabric either needs to be a lightweight woven fabric (eg lining, cotton).
  • Your interfacing should be a lightweight interfacing.
  • The netting layer is optional. There are two versions of the netting. Either ‘regular’ netting (the skirt will have a slight puff), or the full netting (very full and the skirt will look like there is a petticoat underneath). Both have a 2 inch overhang under the skirt and will be seen. You can use any type of netting or tulle.

Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.

    I liked the layers of the skirt and the full lining. It always makes for a well made, well laying, high-end looking garment. This is a beautiful and adaptable pattern that can readily dressed up or down for dressy or casual occasions. It will easily become a dress staple of my daughter’s wardrobe.

    You can play this dress up, or down. Make a simple day dress, a dress for church, or a fancy party dress. It is seriously wonderful.

    Its so gorgeous and forgiving! You can mess up but because of the way it all comes together you can hide a lot of mistakes and no one would ever know! It looks super hard and complicated so people think you are an amazing seamstress but really it’s simple, fast, and easy!

    Definitely purchase this pattern. The dress itself is just sweet and a delight. Its very classy and elegant depending if you add tulle or not. I would tell them that even a novice or experienced seamstress could put this together as the instructions as perfectly clear and concise. There is nothing that you would need to google here, as everything is provided and backed up with picture perfect imagery. And best of all…….Mummy and Me dresses, who doesn’t love those!!

    I loved sewing the yoke. It was a bit like origami, I wasn’t sure it was going to turn out. I followed the instructions exactly (with lots of pinning) and voila, a beautiful dress emerged. The pattern is adorable and very easy to follow. You can truly customize this dress to your heart’s desire. A beginner would have the most success with cotton fabric and regular netting.

    Go for it! I loved to make the bodice and lining. The lining makes it so professional!

    Justst by playing with netting and fabric choice, you can obtain very different styles! From classic to very princess like. Plus it comes in womens sizes as well. And I love the fact that you added a simple belt version! When I get round to making one for myself, I’ll go for that 🙂

    Directions are very clear. I impressed myself that I could make a dress with lining and a yoke – neither of both have I done before.

    Get it! It’s easy to follow, fairly quick to sew, and results in an adorable dress!
