"Beatrice" Dress and Bloomers

Posted by Lynn Jeffries on

If you LOVE vintage style, then you will absolutely adore Beatrice!  The pattern will be released tomorrow in a PDF format includes sizes 2T through size 12! 

Rest easy if you are a beginner because the pattern has no zipper for buttonholes! The back of the dress closes with buttons and loops!

The Beatrice Pattern contains a "zip" file with separate instructions (you'll want to read that first!), a file with all sizes 2T through size 12 nested. 

Perhaps you want your dress to be a little longer or a little shorter to show off the pretty bloomers, a nested pattern will make that much easier!

You can also choose to download each size separately rather than an option where you turn off and on layers.  I prefer separate files because the pattern pieces can be arranged differently for each size to save paper and ink!

Also, long sleeves are included as a separate file as well.

What fun choosing fabrics for Beatrice!  Just look at some of the gorgeous combinations used by our wonderful pattern testers!

And a little of my own fabric choices too!

For my Granddaughter, Alivia's Dress, I chose a solid satin fabric, a lace overlay for the bodice and added a little ruffle to the bottom edge of the sleeve.  Rather than using a cuff for the sleeve, I cut a length of trim the length of the cuff band and gathered the sleeve to the length of the trim.

A few other dresses for inspiration!
