“My granddaughter loves this dress will make another, thankyou Monkeysbug.”

The Gretchen Swing Dress is a breezy, twirly dress. Optional side ties allow the bodice to be loosened or tightened to best fit the wearer. Ties can be made with ribbon, bias tape, or strips of fabric. The cut is generous enough to be layered up on cooler days, but the loose style makes it cool and comfortable on hot days. True buttonholes can be used on the straps, but they aren’t required. Additional instructions are provided for snap buttons too.


SIZES INCLUDED: Little Girls 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7/8, 9/10

Typical with Monkeysbug patterns: lots of options, clear directions, well-thought pictures for the tricky bits, and considerate pricing. SOOO happy with this pattern (But is a Monkeysbug so what's not to love?!) =D Thank you for always delivering!
