Inspired by a 1950s girls dress pattern. Featured in Sew Beautiful #136.
This pattern is sizes 2-6 (also available in sizes 8-14).
Natalie offers a base design on which to build multiple design styles. Three neckline shapes and one collar option offer multiple design possibilities. Any version can be made as sleeveless, capped sleeved or puffed sleeved styles. Choices for trimming, piping, embroidering and embellishing are endless. Make a casual play dress using popular mix-and-match cotton prints, embroidery and fun trims, or create a one-of-a-kind heirloom style with silk, lace and hand stitching. Even smocking is a great idea for the center panel or side bodices.
