The Little Lady Dress pdf pattern by So-Tei-Tei.
The Little Lady Dress by the Sewing Dork.
This is such a charming retro style halter with a self-belt. On my dress, I omitted the ribbon detail from the belt and elasticized mine slightly differently than suggested.
The shoulders close with buttons. I love buttons!
Pattern format: PDF
Sizes included: 12 months to 6 years
What I liked: This dress was simpler to sew than I expected - I would recommend this one to beginners. There were very few pattern pieces to cut, which keeps things easy, and includes lots of photos and explanations. The belt is also completely detachable.
Anything I would change: I altered the belt a bit as I said above, just to suit my own taste.
