We've made some major changes to our Simply Lovely Dress, now called Miss Beatrice. You'll love it even more. Miss Beatrice is easy, yet can be so elegant. A perfect play dress or an Easter Dress...it's all up to you and the fabrics you choose. The best part is that you are assured of a great fit.
Customize this dress by drafting a pattern based on your own favorite shirt. You'll be assured a great fit. With this pattern-making knowledge, you can create a dress in any size from infant to adult. You can mix things up by using an empire waist or changing the length of the skirt.
Or, choose a standard fit and use the printable bodice pieces and cutting guide. The standard fit pieces will fit girl sizes 2-8.
The techniques within this pattern are not meant to teach sewing in the “traditional” sense, but to help you create garments in a quick, yet stylish way.
We use a long sleeve or short sleeve blouse under this dress, along with a petticoat. The petticoat tutorial can be found on the Tutorial Page of our website.
We've also included pattern pieces for a matching 18” doll dress.
For those of you who already own the Simply Lovely Dress e-pattern, you can request Miss Beatrice for free. Just email squigglytwigsdesigns @ yahoo . com and tell us you'd like your Miss Beatrice.
