The bishop dress is a classic for cuteness and comfort. The round yoke frames the face beautifully, and is a great place to display embroidery or applique work. With so many sleeve, length, and size options, you can make a variety of totally different tops and dresses. For tiny babies, it makes the perfect puff-sleeved christening or dedication dress. The flutter sleeve option makes great spring dresses for little girls (gingham and rick-rack are a classic combination). Older girls love stylish tops made from this pattern. The sleeveless version is very on trend, and looks great made from wild fabrics. In the fall, the long sleeved version looks perfect with boots and leggings.
The back opening features a neat hidden binding, and two little snaps are all that are needed for fasteners. If you prefer, buttons and buttonholes can be used. Note - with all the different pattern options this file contains a large amount of pages. However, it is not required to print the whole document, just the needed pattern pages.
Just finished up this puffed sleeve version in chambray with a white yoke. I hand embroidered little flowers on the white yoke. It is absolutely adorable! I love how most seams are enclosed. Next up is the flutter sleeve version! I’m planning to embroidery bunny silhouettes on the yoke this time. Can’t wait!
Love, love this pattern. One of my easy go to patterns
Another wonderful pattern with detailed instruction and excellent fit. Made one for my niece's Easter dress!
OMGoodness if this is not the cutest little dress with the flutter sleeves! I swear I had one exactly the same when I was just a tot, and I am in my forty's, now! (shhh!) Just too sweet and adorable! This this pattern! So vintage looking!

Straight forward instructions!
The instructions for this pattern were very easy to follow! The finished dress was absolutely adorable!
Great pattern. Goes together quickly and easily. Lots of detailed pictures. Will definitely be making this pattern again. She is a great pattern designer.
This pattern is full of classic Carla C! The instructions are easy to understand and the pictures are great to follow.
made beautiful nightgowns for my girls
I love Scentific Seamtress Patterns! Very easy to follow.
LOVE this pattern! It was everything I had hoped it would be. I don't smock but have an embroidery machine. This collar gives the look of a "smocked" bishop dress. I have made three so far.
Very detailed and descriptive instructions as well as being super cute when finished! This is the reason that some of my favorite patterns come from the Scientific Seamstress.
There is a reason she is named Scientific Seamstress. Very detailed oriented directions did not miss a beat on this pattern/directions. It almost felt like she was right in the room with me doing it. I am almost done with my first one of these and I will probably be using it again. Reviews from my granddaughter will determine that. Great job - THANKS.
Another amazing pattern by the Scientific Seamstress. Pattern is easy to follow, goes together rather quickly and looks adorable. With so many options you can use this pattern for so many different things.
