It’s a nice day today, a little cloudy though but enough sun to make some pics of my miniature model. As always she likes to model her new dresses to any public and I’m smiling as I see her twisting and turning her hips before my camera. It’s a simple dress in a cute pattern with a contrast binding and some pleating at the neckline. At the back I made a V-shaped slit and I closed it with a little bow. It was easy, didn’t took very long and absolutely worth the attempt!
The sizes mentioned below are for a 4 Year old. The total length is 56cm, so I started with a rectangle of 56cm (height) and 24cm (1/2 width) After drafting the pattern I added the pleats. I marked the darts at the neckline and cut into the pattern all the way down to the hem. I added 1.5cm width for each pleat (only on top, 0cm at hem) , this will increase the neck width but after sewing the pleats it will have the original width again. As a finishing touch I made a belt of the contrast binding I used for the back. I hope you have fun when you’re making this!
