This instant digital download pattern comes complete with an introduction (what to buy, sizing options, pattern notes, printing suggestions), step by step instructions with clear, colorful photographs, and hand-drawn printable and piece-able pattern pieces (that are easy to print out and tape together).
This pattern comes in the 2/3T sizing specifically, BUT, also has additional pattern pieces included that will allow you to convert this Simplified Version of the Dress in the larger sizes of 4/5 & 6/7, given you have ALSO PURCHASED the Sofia Debutant Version as well. ** Both patterns are required to make the Simplified Costume Version in the sizes of 4/5 and/or 6/7. You will be using the pattern pieces from the 4/5 & 6/7 sizing, and the directions from the Simplified version.
Specific sizing for the 2/3T finished fit of the Simplified Sofia Costume Dress:
SIZE: 2/3T- CHEST: 23" , WAIST: 22" ,SHOULDER to SHOULDER: 9" ,SHOULDER TO LOWER EDGE OF SKIRT: 23"
**Please see my other pattern, Sofia the First Debutant PDF Princess Dress, for purchase and sizing in the larger sizes available of 4/5 and 6/7.
This pattern is intended for the advanced beginner sewer as an easy, lightweight, wearable costume. It has a stretch back for easy on/off and options for placing the stencil motif on with either felt or paint. The pearls can also be added on by either sewing them on by hand, or by gluing them on with Fabri-Tac glue. The finished product will be entirely washable on gentle cycle, if pearls have been sewn on by hand. Lining is only included on the underside of the outer skirt panels. This dress will make a perfect costume for your little girl for dress up, daily wear, or Halloween this year. With minimal fabric needed, you can keep the cost of making this Simplified version low-cost.
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 (and faster to sew with).
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. A few months later, I have put together both a Debutant version of the classic Disney Costume Dress, and now a Simplified Costume version of the same. I hope you will delight the little girl in your life and purchase a copy today!
Please don't hesitate to contact me before purchase, should you have any questions. There are more pictures and information about this dress on my blog, Joy2Sew.blogspot.com.
