Sewing Classic Clothes for Girls

A line dress size 4 for a friend’s daughter

Sweet Dress as 2nd birthday dress . It was too big for her.

A line dress size 2 . This is a good fit.

I recently purchased this book from an online bookseller. It has lots of reviews on Amazon so I won’t go into detail. Suffice to say that it is a good book to have with basic patterns that can be modified to make lots of different looks.  Some of the details like armholes which are too wide , need adjusting to personal preference, but on the whole the patterns are a great fit. I made a few dresses from the A-line pattern, and also the Sweet Dress pattern , which is essentially a basic bodice dress. This one incidentally is rather generously sized.
