This one dress both my tween and myself approved.. which doesn't happen too often. Usually her favorite dresses are too short or too tight for my taste...
I refer to The Maria Dress
I tried it the first time for my 10.5 years old. size 10... a sightly see through fabric. I than repeated twice more with black and white variations. I plan another dress, white one, for Shavoot. The picture fail to show how pretty these dresses are, and how great they fit my girl!
Than my 7 years old wanted such a dress too. The first version I made for her was was size 7. It was too big.. too long... didn't like it... I gave it a friend of hers, who is one year older, and the dress is a perfect fit for her. I than used the same size 7 that I traced but left out the middle part and narrowed just a bit the top parts.. This is what I got..
Amazing dress! so pretty... Two variations of the skirts... both my girls voted for the rectangle option as more "in".
The size goes up to 14, which means I have years more to enjoy the pattern, also a great bonus!
Can't tell about the instructions, since it is an easy pattern, really nothing complicated there..
Happy independence day!
