The original dress was made for my daughter using Butterick’s pattern B4967. She’s age 6. The difficulty then came to grade the pattern up for a 10 year old plus size. The first pattern grading I’d ever done. Nightmare!
I used double georgette for the dress and satin for the cumerbund. Turned out well though!
I’ve also made a shorter red version for my little girl out of satin backed crepe.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
