Ella Dress is a simple and sweet dress that every girl will love. This is another versatile design that can be dressed up or down . Make it in a more formal fabric and it could be a beautiful occasion dress. Make it in some fun quilting cottons and it's a perfect play dress. This is a perfect summer dress or jumper to wear a long sleeve shirt under. It can also grow well because next season it can be worn as a tunic with leggings or jeans because the straps are adjustable to fit a bigger girl.

This dress features a wide skirt and wide contrasting hem with big sash tie at the back. The elastic waist makes perfect fit on your princess. A slight sweetheart front bodice definitely made this not an ordinary reverse knot dress. It will be FUN using contrasting or coordinating fabric to enhance the main print. It is also easy and fast to make. Great beginner project.

In here, you will find instructions and the pattern to construct this dress to fit 12M-8Y. Pattern pieces are computer- drafted and color coded for the size. All instructions are simple to follow and accompanied by color photos for better elaboration.

Great pattern. The directions were clear and easy to follow, and it was fun to sew. The dress turned out really pretty. It was a little bigger than the average 2T, but that is better than being too small.

So cute and simple for a beginner. It turned out better than expected! Very happy with this purchase. The only part that was tricky for me as a beginner was having to measure out most of the pieces. I prefer all pattern pieces so I don't make errors. But it turned out well in the end.
