Free girl dress sewing pattern – AVRIL cute tunic dress FREEBOOK
There is a reason to cheer! We have been working on this new pattern for a long time and tadaaa – finally the time has come!
The free pattern for this cute girl’s dress is finally online!
We spontaneously named the dress AVRIL. Avril is slightly oversized and can grow with your child for a long time. The gathered kimono sleeves are typical Avril. The cut includes long and short sleeves so that you can sew the dress in different variations all year round. For the long sleeves, we recommend a elastic hem band, it not only looks more cute – it is more practical for small children and does not restrict freedom of movement.
Special thanks goes to our wonderful, creative rehearsal seamstresses! Thank you for your effort, commitment, feedback and the great exchange that we experienced in the trial sewing group! Without you this post would not have been possible!
Take a look at the great photos and be inspired!
We have sewn our two dresses from the batik muslin item no. 132698 and linen item no. 111000 sewn.
Light cotton fabrics, poplin, voile, batiste or baby cord would also be good choices for this cute dress. Of course, you can also sew the dress out of stretchy fabrics. In that case you simply can do without the button placket on the back. You can border the neckline with a cuff like a T-shirt.
