This is a test garment of a pattern I made to sell but I’m not sure how to go about that. It’s sized for a three-year-old with a chest measurement of 22".
The dress is also for sale at £44.95 plus P&P (UK only).
I made the pattern because a customer at my Mum’s haberdashery wanted a pattern for a little girl’s dress with a classic Sailor Collar.
I took photos all the way through making the dress and I am currently making a series of tutorials on how to make a dress on my blog The Sewing Corner
The dress is made of blue linen and has an invisible zip in the back. It takes only 1 yard of fabric. If you have a metre you may have a little left over.
