English pattern Babydoll
Ruffled dress (and top), with slim-fit chest and waist, that flares at the tips. The rather short and ample skirt is composed of 3 layered ruffles that twirl with the child. A zipper in the back, easily sewn since visible, brings a pop of color and a modern touch to this dress (or top). Also, differents sleeves : long or short sleeves, sleeveless or with straps. An irresistible chic and wink to sobriety!
If sewing a zipper scares you, you can choose to sew buttons and buttonholes instead, as shown in the Giselle free tutorial (available here in french http://www.papillonetmandarine.bigcartel.com/product/patron-gratuit-giselle)
