The idea of this pattern was that it could be used by more grown up girls thence being available from sizes 3 up to 14 years old. Some girls, as they grow up, stop finding ruffles so stylish and prefer simpler garments (I have one at home like that 😉) so we also wanted to have options for them. The simple bodice will be perfect!
The sleeves and collars are the same as in the gathered bodice version so, as you can see, this pattern is really versatile.
I think most of you already know that I like pinafores and I think this version works wonderfully paired with it. I made F a version, using the shirt bodice, puff sleeves and ruffle collar. How sweet, yet age appropriate, does it look? Yes, I know… I’m partial here. But I really like it. 😊
As in the previous version I’ve made for her, I used a size 8 for height with size 6 for width and I’m pleased with the fit. Not too tight or too loose.
The fabric used is Liberty Capel in mustard from Alice Caroline. F is a big fan of yellow/mustard colours so she “needed” this one.
For M, I also made a shirt bodice version, but this time with the ruffled sleeves. How cute is this option?
To keep it simple, as she prefers it, I made the peter pan collar and it’s such a lovely combo!
Like the previous one I shared, I made size 8 for height with size 6 for width and I think the fit is spot on.
The fabric is Liberty Mitsi in grey and I must confess that when she first saw it she said she preferred brighter colours but when she saw it again paired with the mustard skirt she loved it! She even said it looked sophisticated! I think that’s a win! 😉
You still can get your pattern with a reduced price, until tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd May). 😊
Thank you so much Susana for all the effort you put this pattern. ❤
