Sweet Lilly Pintuck Dress & Tunic by Bella Sunshine Patterns

DSCN0714Melissa Prendergast has done it again!  Another beautiful dress & tunic pattern.  Bella Sunshine Patterns has released their Sweet Lilly Pintuck Dress & Tunic.  This pattern is a vintage style dress or tunic.

DSCN0704What makes is special are all the details!  Pintucks on the semi-fitted bodice, fabric ruffling on the center panel of the bodice and sleeves, buttons down the bodice front, ruffles on the bottom.  It all makes the dress girly without going over the top!  The neckline is understitched so there isn’t any extra stitching visable to take away from all the details. The bodice is lined so no itchy edges against the body!  The bodice back is button up (more details) but the dress is easy to get off and on because of the continous skirt placket.  DSCN0757

It looks hard, but the instructions are very detailed and easy to follow.  Take your time and go step by step and the results are amazing!  Make sure to measure your child carefully. The trickiest part is once the pintucks are in you need to make sure the front bodice is the same size as the lining.  Mark your pintucks carefully and make sure each one is folded on the line and stitched on the line.  These are all included in the instructions!

This dress is truly versatile. There are two skirt lengths in this pattern-make a dress or tunic for pants or leggings or even use as a short dress.  Just a simple change in the fabrics turns it into a totally different look!  Dressy enough for a wedding or church, but just as at home in school or for play. We already have fabrics picked for our next one!DSCN0720
