I made this dress using the same pattern I had drafted for the Pumpkin Patch dress I made for the pumpkin challenge over at SYTYC. And I digitized my pattern and am sharing it with you today!
The dress is made with a lined bodice and gathered skirt and closes with buttons in the back.
It has a sash that is sewn on the front and ties in the back and a sweet little peter pan collar that hangs over the shoulder seams just a bit.
I wanted a vintage holiday look for E, so I chose a lace fabric and layered it over some cotton fabric. Then I chose a satin for the sash and collar. All the fabrics in this dress came from Joann's.
Now for the details on the pattern!
You can download the pattern and all the instructions to make the holiday dress here-->The Holiday Dress Pattern
I only drafted the pattern to fit my daughter and did not scale it at all. So it is only available in size 18 months.
The pattern will fit a girl with a chest size of about 19"-20" and hits just above the knee.
So if you have a little girl in your life around 18 months, download the pattern above and make her a Holiday Dress!
