Short dress, long dress and tunic options.
The holidays are fast approaching.
I wanted a dress that could easily be made in a fancy version, but one also fit for a princess.
A rounded back panel is edged by ruffles.
The ruffles end at the front in two pleats.
The ruffles are not gathered for ease of sewing and for a delicate finish.
The sleeves are 3/4 length.
A ruffle can be added on the sleeve hems. This is optional.
In this pattern you will find:
A short dress.
A long dress with a high low hem.
A long underskirt to wear with all 3 styles.
A short underskirt to wear with the dress or the tunic.
A set of possibilities for dramatically different styles.
And to suit everybody...
Festive is styled in sizes 2 to 16.
All the sizes and their options are in one folder.
The pattern sheet is in colour.
(The age 16 is equivalent to a French size 36/38)
Blue version: Long dress and long underskirt options
Hannah wanted the long version.
This gives a princess styling and the underskirt made in a fine tulle is light as air.
Blue Japanese fabric: Miss Matatabi
Sparkly version for the Holidays.
The tunic is made in a floaty crepe for a chic style.
Crêpe: France duval Stalla
Sequinned tulle: France duval Stalla
Black Jacquard from my stash
Lightweight flannel for an every day version.
To wear with tights and boots or pumps.
With a long underskirt the outfit becomes dressy and poetic.
Nani Iro flannel: Miss Matatabi
