Fairy Tale Dress Pattern by Oliver + S
This children’s pattern is multi-sized from 5 to 12 years and creates the ultimate fully-lined, special-occasion dress. View A features a Peter Pan collar, tulip cap sleeves, tubular waistband, and front bow detail. View B is sleeveless and has a modified Peter Pan collar and a bow at the back. Note that this is a fitted dress. Be sure to measure your child carefully when choosing a size. We recommend making a bodice muslin to ensure a good fit.
