FREE Sewing Pattern for Girls – The London Dress

It’s not a secret that I love sewing with The Fabric Market’s Poly Cotton fabrics, so when I saw the London Dress PDF Tutorial released as a FREE pattern from Violette Field Threads (coupon code is available in their Facebook Group) I ran in to grab a few yards.

Fabric Choices

After wandering the aisles, I chose this Vintage Floral Batiste as the main fabric.

I then grabbed the following Poly Cotton solids as coordinates:

Fuchsia for the straps

Poly/Cotton - Fuchsia

Olive for the ruffle

Poly/Cotton - Olive

Peach for the lining (not included in the pattern directions)

Poly/Cotton - Peach

The London dress is a fabulous summer dress with a tiny bodice and gathered empire skirt. My daughter loves the billowy movement and often tells me how comfortable she is in it! If you don’t like the proportion and prefer a longer bodice, there are instructions in the tutorial on how to lengthen it.

The tutorial features bias tape straps and works with self-made bias tape or pre-packaged bias tape. The straps are meant to tie at the shoulders, but the pattern could be altered to create a plain strap if desired.

The London Dress would work perfectly with a long sleeved shirt underneath in the fall/winter and cozy boots. It’s a dress that could be worn year round!

With The Fabric Market’s prices and an hour or so of your time, you’ll be whipping up London Dresses left and right – Fabulous Fashion at a fraction of the cost!
