I tested the size 2 for my little peanut and added the dress length of the size 4. The pattern has cut lines for both top and dress length. I love the versatility!
There are several sleeve options on this pattern as well- short sleeves, long sleeves with elastic in the upper arm to create a gorgeous bell-sleeve style, trim on the sleeves, or elastic at the wrists, which is what I used in this test. I love a pattern with options!
The pattern ranges from a 2t to a size 6. It includes a size chart, fabric requirements, and a notions listing so that you have everything you need to sew it up.
The pattern itself is a printable PDF that is color coded per size and includes a 1" test box to ensure you printed to the correct scale. There are diagrams included in the instructions to ensure you assemble the pages correctly. The pattern also includes a suggested cutting layout.
This pattern includes very detailed instructions with super clear pictures and even includes a link to a video tutorial on YouTube. The construction of this dress included some new techniques for me, which I am always happy to learn!
There are additional instructions for adding trim along the neck line and sleeves. I left this one plain, but love the look of the trim in both places! Instead, I opted to add a trim just above the hemline for an added pop of color.
