Sleeveless, slightly flared little dress for girls
A classic: quick and easy to sew and wear!
The Little Favorite dress is made from woven fabrics. Great sewing pattern for beginners.
The sleeveless dress has an overlapping front yoke, looking like V-neck. It doesn’t have any fasteners which makes it easy to sew and wear.
The plain, simple A-line cut is also perfectly suitable for big prints. You can use up your leftover fabric scraps for yoke and pocket pieces. They look best when made from a nice, contrasting fabric.
Neckline and armholes are finished with bias tape. The bindings look especially nice in a contrasting color.
You can easily make your own variations of the simple little dress pattern: Change the look by using decorative ribbons, ruffles, pleats or extra seams.
Whether for summer season, as a chic dress for special occasions, combined with an undershirt for spring or autumn or made from cozy winter fabrics – the Little Favorite Dress really is an all time favorite. Since 2011!
