The Fairytale Handkerchief Hem Dress Pattern - Girls 1 to 5 years + 6/6X, 7/8 bonus
With two layers of full, rustly skirts, lace-up bodice and 'reverse knot' back, your little one will feel like a true princess in the Fairytale Dress!
Versatile - a strappy summer dress, a gorgeous jumper over a top, a dramatic holiday dress, a base for a storybook character or princess costume - try a tulle or sparkle net layer! Layer over bloomers or leggings or wear it on its own. The reverse knot back allows for growing room.
