This adorable top and dress is perfect for all occasions! The unique sash has options for attaching it to the dress. Not only is the sash beautiful, it is functional! Since the bodice slips over a childs head, once you attach the sash, it will cinch in the waist to give the top/dress a fitted look. The bodice is lined. There are 2 options for the sash - buttons or you can use snaps. The pattern features tank verision, cap sleeve and fitted long sleeve versions - perfect for year round wear! This dress and top is also school appropriate.

This is a perfect dress for all seasons and can be dressed up or down for different occasions. The knit bodice provides extra comfort, while the finishing touches gives this dress feminine charm. The ruffle neckline and sleeves as well as the bow on the waistband will set this dress apart from the others. The pattern is incredibly versatile with two different neck line options (ruffle or plain), three different sleeve lengths (sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve), three different sleeve finishes (basic hem, basic ruffle, or banded ruffle), and two different skirt options (single gathered skirt or the double ruffle skirt). Mix and match these options to create your own unique look. You can make so many different dresses from the same pattern!
