Francine Flutter or Flared Sleeve Girls Dress PDF Sewing Pattern
Product type: PDF Sewing Pattern
Skill Level: Confident beginner to intermediate
Size Range: 3-6m to girls size 10
The Francine vintage style top and dress is so much fun! There are several different style options to choose from, making this an extremely versatile pattern…perfect for any season or occasion! The center front panel on the bodice allows for multiple different looks. You can create a ruched center panel with your choice of vertical or horizontal gathering stitches… or make a flat center panel with ruffles peeking out of the seams. There are two different sleeve options to choose from: flutter or flared. The flared sleeve can be left plain or a ruffle added to the hem. The bottom of the skirt is trimmed with either a ruched style ruffle (gathered down the center) or regular ruffle (gathered along one edge). Sew some pretty ribbon or other decorative sewing trim over the gathering stitches if desired. The bodice buttons up the back and there is an attached sash that ties in the back to complete the look. Francine can be made as a dress or a top (both lengths are included). Appropriate for the advanced beginner or intermediate sewist. Girls sizes 3-6m through 10 are included. Happy sewing!
