|toddler dress (aka pillowcase dress)|
There is also two fabric cut outs for the front and back bodice, with a shorter length, just 2" below the armhole, used for lining the top or chest area.
After sewing the lining to the front and back bodice, I also did a top stitch around the armholes which is not indicated in the book. Some of the extra embellishments indicated in the book were omitted in this project, as I just wanted to test out the main pattern, which is the dress. You could add a flower yo-yo to the front bodice and also coloured ribbons along the bottom of the dress.
1/2" seam allowance used throughout.
Straps made from 2 x 2" width x 28" length fabric. (50cm width x 80cm length)
White thread used
Singer 160 sewing machine
Pattern for 2T-3T
The pattern for the toddler dress was taken from this book by Emma Hardy, "making children's clothes".
