What an absolutely beautiful classic a-line dress this is and the designer has made the digital pattern in multiple sizes, from age 2 to 14. We love the simple a-line shaping and the options for sewing this dress in blocks, with pretty lace trims. No need to sew any tricky zippers or buttons, the dress simply slips on and off without them.
The Charlotte dress is a stylish and very comfortable dress with the following features:
It has a simple boat neck and contrast yoke
It has 2 sleeve choices (short sleeve and elbow length sleeve)
You can fit an optional pocket, contrast or same fabric
The designer designed this dress pattern to be made in a soft stretch fabric. It can be made in stretch jersey, fleece, or interlock fabrics.
This easy to make dress has a digital pattern that comes in multiple sizes. There are links to the patterns below, where either you want the pattern to be in sizes 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 (to fit approximately ages 2 to 10) or in sizes 8 to 14 for tweens.
