This is truly a classic little dress. With it’s capped sleeves, empire waist and little buttons down the back. It’s reminiscent of styles worn in the Regency Era by some of my favorite literary characters. However, I made this one in a baby-doll length so it will go perfectly  with little bloomers or pantaloons.

Sizes 3-8

This precious little dress pattern is designed with every sewer in mind. If you are new to sewing or a seasoned pro you will find this design fun and easy to put together. My patterns are filled with detailed instructions and illustrations to help you along the way.
