I made the size ten for my nine year old niece.
The bodice has two straps the come over the shoulders and through a button hole on the elastic back to make the signature reverse knot.
There is only one pattern piece for the bodice and the rest are cut from measurements. It’s a fast sew with a beautiful result!
And it makes Sydney look so tall and grown up!
I realized after I had cut, ruffled, and hemmed the ruffle piece that there were two rents in the fabric. No way was I going to do all that again, so I added two little heart appliques to cover it up – I think it adds such a nice little detail!
