Girl's Bella Dress Pattern by Emporia Patterns

Bella is a mini-me kids summer dress based on the adult pattern Cassie dress. A t-shirt style bodice attached to gathered skirt layers gives a full, flowy effect for little girls. Chuck on some sandals and you're ready for the beach or a trip to the park. The children's dress can also be made with tie straps for a more traditional summery sundress feel. Or you can always team the t-shirt version with a cardigan and leggings for the colder months. This pattern is suitable for beginners – it features no darts or closures making it super quick!

The Bella pattern comes in ages 3 to 12.
