Welcome to my stop on the Shortie Nightgown & Bloomers Tour! My niece Sofie is ready to show you her Shortie DRESS!
That’s right, it’s a dress! I sewed a size 3 for Sof, since it will be a while until it’s warm enough to wear dresses full time.
So here it is on the hanger; so you can see how it will lay once this baby grows into it this summer.
I used an inverted pleat at the center front, and added sparkly silver piping.
I also took 2″ off the tunic length and added a contrast band on bottom. I have an extra wide hem that can be let out as she grows. I have the feeling this will be one of those dresses that turns into a tunic, then a top as she gets bigger!
The back yoke is open, giving some extra headspace. That means no zippers or buttons for you! And Sofie loves this dress because she can take it off and put it on by herself. Sometimes backward or inside out; but unassisted :)
While we’re waiting for Sof to grow into her sweet little Shortie dress; you can hop over to GYCT and check out the rest of the pattern tour. You can get a copy of the Shortie Nightgown & Bloomers pattern 20% off during the tour; just use promo code “SHORTIE20” !
