This magical little reverse knot tutu style dress is easier than you might expect, thanks to the use of 6” tulle on a roll! Absolutely perfect for your next fairy, ballerina, angel or princess costume. This design also makes a darling flower girl, birthday or special occasion dress! The reverse knot style fully lined bodice comes in two lengths: empire waist or natural waist. There are also two strap styles to choose from, both of which are gathered at the base: easy, no-sew straps made from 6” tulle or sewn straps made from other fabric options (eg cotton, silk, satin etc). Both strap styles feed through a buttonhole in the elasticized back bodice and tie in a bow. The simple underskirt can be made from a variety of fabrics and is gathered and sewn to the bodice. Finally, strips of 6” tulle are sewn directly to the bodice….no tulle gathering required! This dress has a simple construction with dramatic results! You can even omit the tulle for a simple yet elegant party dress. Feel free to get creative and sew faux flowers or other embellishments to the bottom of the bodice to complete the look you are going for. This pattern offers a layered printing option, allowing you to print only the size/sizes you need (you can still print all sizes by not selecting the layers option). A confident beginner with basic sewing skills should be able to handle this project. Girl’s sizes 6-12M through 8 are included. Happy stitching!
