A-Line Sleeveless Dress for Girls

Posted by on


Avoid the price tags of new clothing and make your own simple A-line dress for girls. But don't stop at this free sewing pattern. Hang around CraftFoxes for more girls' sundress patterns and easy dress sewing projects. While you're at it, sew yourself something nice, like a new shift dress to wear at work and for play.
The free pattern for this girls' A-line dress is available for download right here.
When looking at the pattern sheets, you'll want to focus on the "S" sections. (The pattern sheets have patterns for several different projects from the Girls Style Book.)

Double fold placket edge and topstitch as shown.

Step 3

Sew shoulder seams.

Step 4

Baste between notches on front and back neckline and gather. Sew neckline binding to neckline, making overhanging binding into ties.

Step 5

Sew side seams.

Step 6

Sew armhole binding to armholes, overlapping and folding in ends.

Step 7

Double fold hem, then topstitch.

Step 8

This pattern is excerpted with permission from "Girls Style Book" by Yoshiko Tsukiori (Tuttle Publishing).

    This appears to be a lovely pattern, however the PDF pages for the pattern are quite oversized and thus don't appear to be readily printable. Has anyone found a solution to this to date?

    How do I print this pattern? The PDF has 6 sheets of overlapping pattern pieces and I can't tell what sizes they are or how to print this. Thanks!
