Only two pieces of the pattern are required to be printed (bodice and sleeve), which is so refreshing. The instructions and diagrams are easily understood and result in a professional dress with a fully lined bodice (and without exposed seams).
Let's start with the sleeveless option? This option is maybe the quickest to put together since hand sewing is not required to affix the lining (though the hand stitching is totally worth the effort with the sleeve options).
Their favorite part of the dress is obviously the generous pockets!
Now onto the short sleeve version:
I love this version, which was an accident. You can see that the skirt is half of the width that the pattern calls for. I had less fabric than I thought and it was already cut out, so I went with it. I think it looks very retro (love the knobby knees). I trimmed the pockets with some adorable stork ribbon.
My favorite part of the pattern is the pull on/pull off square neckline. It is so unique!
This one I added lace to the sleeves and bodice line - such a sweet look.
I made a matching yo-yo hair clip for this one, which I need to do more often. So cute!
You can get the pattern now here or here. Check it out!
