While this pattern is intended for the advanced sewer, as a debutant gown, there are many suggestions for modifications included with this dress, provided by some of my testers. Suggestions for modifications include: omitting sheer layers, and just working with Casa style satin, substituting felt stencil motifs for stenciling on the skirt, 3 sleeve options to chose from, omitting lining and tulle layers, and a zipper closure at the back with a suggestion for stretch polyester instead.
All sewing for this project can be easily completed with a standard sewing machine. However, for more of a professional look, a serger is highly recommended.
I created this dress originally for a friend who could no longer purchase the Sofia costume dress on Disney's site, as they are often sold out. Three months, and lots of requests later, I have turned this idea into a full-scale pattern for you to purchase for your little girl. It can be made either simply or elaborately, with many modifications and customizations. Fits girls sizes 4-7. I hope you will delight the little girl in your life and purchase a copy today!
Thank you so much for this pattern. I shortened it for my 3 year old and simplified it a little but it turned out beautifully. She wore it for her Sofia themed birthday party. I got so many compliments! Thanks for helping me look like "Mom of the year". The pattern was clear and easy to follow.

The cutest Sofia dress pattern available. Can't wait to get the time to make this. Please keep making your great patterns. Easy to understand instructions.

The pattern was perfect! It made a beautiful dress! However, I found it VERY small. I have a slender almost three year old, and made the 4/5. I had to add almost 2 inches to each underarm for it to fit her thru the chest. And her measurements were spot on with the pattern. Just a heads up.
