This is the Hannah Dress from the pattern maker Yeppar, on Etsy. Truly one perfect pattern for my big girl. She is no longer a fan of princesses or anything twirly. This dress pleases both me, and her.
A little more tailored looking than your average little girl’s dress. A crisp clean collar and flared short sleeves.
The front on the dress goes quite low, but the front button piece can be moved higher or lower as needed. The lowness of the front could have been in part to the roomy fit of the dress on my girl. I could have easily made a size smaller for my string bean.
There are a few pleats on the front…
And they’re mirrored on the back.
If you like this pattern too, there are a few things you should know…
- The pieces do not include seam allowances, and some of the pieces call for different seam allowances.
- I think there is an easier way to do the armholes. Read through the instructions completely before beginning and you may think that too.
- Even though I have a thin child, I feel the pattern is roomy. Take measurements, you might want to size down.
If you think a dress might be roomy, or could fit into the next year, when cutting it out add an extra inch to the hem.
I forgot to take a photo but I made a deep 1 inch hem. Because this dress is so roomy on her, next year I can undo my hem and make it smaller, adding length to the dress.
Her personality in a nutshell. :)
I bought this pattern, and Yeppar has no idea who I am. Just wanted to share a pattern I liked.
