Here’s a sewing pattern for a very beautiful dress called the Vintage Grace Flutter Dress. We agree with the designer when she says “it is sure to be your new favorite sewing pattern!”
Flutter sleeves really do add a feminine touch to this classic looking dress, even more so if you add in the option for trim on the sleeves. Your little girl will love one or two or three of these staple dresses in her closet.
The pretty gathered skirt sits at the natural waistline. This lower waist gives a large space on the bodice, which is perfect for heat transfer designs, adding embroidery, or using large fabric prints that you want to show off.
The low-cut back gives this dress a delicate detail that offsets any unadorned front to the dress. Perfectly cool for warm summer days or running about activities.
The buttons and skirt placket make this dress very easy to slip on and off, making it not only easy to dress your little one, but it also avoids zippers which not everyone likes to sew.
The bodice is fully lined which makes for a beautiful finish inside and out. So lovely to wear with no exposed seams.
This pattern is absolutely perfect for a confident beginner sewer.
It comes in lots of sizes from 6 months to girls 12.
What you will need to make the Vintage Grace flutter dress and top:
Woven fabric for both the main and lining. Suggested fabrics include quilting cottons, cotton poplins, batistes, and jacquards to name a few,
A lightweight woven fusible interfacing,
Three 3/4” (1.9cm) buttons,
1/4”-3/4” (0.6cm-1.9cm) trim of your choice (if you choose to add the optional trim on the flutter sleeves),
This designer has thought of everything when it comes to her pdf sewing pattern. They feature computer drafted pattern pieces, a layered pdf so you can print just the sizes you need and professional diagrams with easy to follow instructions that include photo tutorials for the tricky parts. You will also get a glossary of terms that is very helpful to beginners that are new to sewing, as well as a size chart and finished measurement chart so you can customize the fit.
Also included are blending diagrams that show you how to get the perfect custom fit for your child, and a cutting chart and pattern pieces. The designer used testers to check her project, and she has included some tester photos of the finished garment so you can get a little inspiration. And finally, you’ll get consistent sizing throughout the sewing pattern so you will get a reliable fit every time, and amazing customer service by the designer both through Etsy, email and her Facebook group.
