Sew this pretty girls halter dress sewing pattern for sizes 12-18m through 16 years!
The ‘Fiorella’ halter dress ties around the neck. The fitting bodice has two elastic choices for the back. You can make the bodice from knit or woven fabric. The bodice is long which makes this dress have a drop waistline. NOTE: for diapered girls you want to shorten the bodice, otherwise the bodice may ride up as well as when adding belt loops. The tutorial shows you where to shorten the bodice.
The front of the bodice provides a great surface for trims or embroidery, you can choose to shirr the back bodice or add regular elastic. Another option is to add a sash and belt loops.
No serger needed but it’s recommended. No zippers or buttons to sew either!
Dress length: it hits below the knee, dress might reach to mid calf on shorter girls!

Pages to print: 37 tutorial pages and 13 for the bodice templates (includes which pages to print per size)

Note: there are no darts to accommodate the developing girl but the fit is very forgiving due to the elasticized back. You could make the bodice in knit fabric to achieve a more perfect fit.

I just love this dress and so does my daughter. I had to make 2 because 1 just wouldn’t do. I love the coverage on the bodice. I shirred the back and it makes for a comfortable fit. One with the sash and one without. The bodice is great for embroidery work as well. I sewed up this dress in less than an hour. with simple easy to follow directions. Happy Sewing
