There was a competition in the Betties Basket Facebook group a while back. Contestants got to send in their design idea and the designers that participated got to choose the design they wanted to make into a pattern. I choose Heathers dress idea. She made a drawing for a dress with crossed straps and a high/low wrapped skirt. The dress was made with woven fabrics.
After 2 muslins and a few changes I made the final version. A dress with shirred or elastic back (no zippers or buttons). Straps that meet in the back and are cut in one piece, so no shoulder seams. The high/low wrapped skirt option, top option and maxi dress option. And my favorite, a seamless bodice.
They look so pretty!
The pattern comes in sizes 12m to 14y but is not made for the developing chest. The bodice and wrapped skirt are made using pattern pieces. The top and maxi skirt are made by using a cutting chart. The bodice has is made to have no exposed seams and requires handsewing. The neckline is understitched. Sewing level is, depending on the options you choose, from advanced beginner to intermediate.
The skirt is hemmed but you could choose to use bias tape (not in the instructions).
The pattern will be on SALE for two days only, today and tomorrow for $5! Find the pattern in our shop, no code needed. And do not forget to come to our sewing group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Sofilantjes/?ref=bookmarks
