Detailed Description

View A starts with the most basic design featuring CB Closure and Smocked Sleeves.
View B offers a Buttonfront Closure with Bias Bound Sleeves.

Additional styles include a Closure in the Armhole Seam, a Sleeveless Jumper/Sundress with Shoulder Ties and finally a Bishop with Butterfly Sleeve.

Once you have the basic two closures and sleeve treatments you can mix and match as you please. As in the ‘sister’ pattern, ’Design Your Own Basic Yoke Dress’, there is a section “For the Designer in You” with more ideas and suggestions to create many different options.

There are four design plates to choose from and tips sprinkled throughout the instructions and pattern sheets. Keeping in mind that not all children wear fussy batiste or fine linen dresses, and not all fabrics pleat up the same, there are adjustments within the pattern for different weights of fabrics. Allowance is offered for three weights of fabric as well as neckline shaping. So, if you are working with fine Swiss batiste, broadcloth, or brushed cotton, there is a pattern width option for each. The use of a pleating machine or pleating service, some knowledge of smocking and sewing are required.
