Alexia Ruched Bodice Girls Party and Sun Dress PDF Sewing Pattern
Product Type: PDF Sewing Pattern
Skill Level: Intermediate
Size Range: 6-12M to girls size 8This stunning and sophisticated dress is sure to make any little girl feel special! The gorgeous gathered bodice fits the girl’s chest beautifully thanks to the elastic casings in the back (can be shirred instead if you prefer). And the elastic in the straps gives them a gorgeous ruffled look while still being comfortable to wear. The two ruffle trimmed skirts give this dress extra fullness, and the drawstring “ruching”on the overskirt allows the underskirt to “peek” through. The generous sash that ties in back completes the fairytale look. You can also make an easier sundress version by omitting the overskirt. Plus, as an added bonus, you can also make a simplified version of the bodice by using the lining pattern piece for both layers of the bodice, and skip gathering the bodice. And as if that’s not enough, there is also an addendum at the end of this tutorial for how to make an adorable top. So many possibilities! Appropriate for an intermediate seamstress….but since the instructions are so detailed, a confident beginner could sew this as well. Pattern pieces and instructions to make sizes 6-12 months through 8 are included. This pattern does not offer a layers printing option (all sizes must be printed) Happy stitching!
