The Josephine dress is simply gorgeous! This unique elasticized back peasant style dress is sure to make any little girl feel like a princess....this bodice is different than most peasant bodices in that the neckline is only elasticized over the shoulders, so the front bodice fits smoothly across the chest. You can elasticize the back by either shirring or doing elastic casings....the detailed tutorial teaches you how to do both. The ruffle trimmed sleeves can be worn on or off the shoulders, giving the dress a romantic and timeless appeal. Instructions are given in the tutorial for making short, ½ length, or ¾ length sleeves. The shirred (elasticized) back allows for a flattering shape while still being comfortable for your little one to wear. The adorable (and optional) ruffle edged apron and the generous sash that ties in a bow in back completes the storybook look. Make this dress as elaborate or as simple as you like, the choice is up to you! This dress is appropriate for the advanced beginner or intermediate seamstress. This sewing tutorial gives instructions and pattern pieces for making sizes 3-6 months through size 12. Happy sewing!!
