She'll love to twirl away in this comfortable but pretty twirly halter dress! This pattern is designed for knit fabrics only. The Lakeshore Halter Dress is a knee-length dress with a chic/retro bodice and circle skirt. It has ties at the neck and the waist, to give it a tailored look on all girls!
No serger required! You'll just need a regular sewing machine! :)
This is a simple sewing-with-knits project and suitable for those who have never sewn with knits before. This pattern and tutorial will teach you all you need to know to get started, with a generous section and full-color photos on how to sew with knits. The tutorials are followed by 26 detailed step-by-step instructions and photos on how to sew the dress.
More experienced seamstresses will find that this dress is quick to sew and gives an adorable result that can be embellished to your liking. For you, there's also a "Just the Facts" guide for easy printing without the photo steps.
All pattern pieces are computer drafted, color- and line-coded, and are designed to print properly on either A4 or U.S. Letter-sized paper.

I have not used this pattern yet, but by looking at the instructions it loos fairly easy to construct. I will review it so more once I get to use it. Just waiting to buy the perfect print for it :)
Please see check the photos above for fabric requirements and sizing information. Note that this pattern calls for light- to mid-weight knit jersey without spandex/Lycra added.
