1 yard (+/-) fabric (depending on size of child)
Pinking shears or serger
Thread, scissors, tape measure, bias tape (optional), etc.
Bodice pattern found here (scroll down to the bottom)--the pattern size is 4T but it can be adjusted to be larger or smaller
2. Cut bodice pattern according to instructions.
3. Measure child from high waist to desired length of gown plus about four and a half inches for an exaggerated rolled hem.
4. Cut the gown section--it's the entire width of the fabric by the desired length plus the hem allowance (it should be one piece).
5. With right sides together, sew front bodice and two back bodice pieces together. Cut raw edge with pinking shears.
Wear and look adorable!
(Maybe I'll make one for myself...)
A BIG thanks to the adorable models, Kaylee, Lydia, Evelyn and Claire! They're naturals!
