Polly Pippin is a sweet summer frock for little girls with two simple, easy to sew appliqué designs to choose from, rick-rack trim, a frilled hem panel and puffed sleeves. The neck and sleeve cuffs are finished with a self fabric binding; there is a slit placket with a button & loop at the back neck or you can use a zip closure if you prefer. The dress can be made without the sleeve; a binding pattern has been included for the plain armhole. You can also use the pattern to make a simple top by adjusting the length of the main dress panel to the finished length you want. The dress is an easy fitting, A-line shape.
SIZES: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 to fit children 6-9 months to 6 years. Check the size chart for your correct size; chest and height measurements are the best guide, these are body measurements and ease has been added to the pattern.
FABRICS:The most suitable fabrics to use are light weight cottons such as poplin, lawn and homespun. The dress can be made in one fabric or a combination of two or more contrasting prints and trims.
EXPERIENCE: Advanced beginner to intermediate. Basic sewing skills with careful attention to detail. The tutorial shows every step of the construction.
