To create the armhole hems: Fold down the armhole edge 1/4″ towards the inside of the dress and press.
Cut tiny slits into the seam allowance every 1/4″.
Fold down the armhole hem once more 1/4″ and press. Then pin (if preferred) and sew in place along the dashed lines, close to the inner folded seam.
13. To create the casing for the shoulder ties, place one of your dress pieces with wrong side up in front of you.
14. Fold down the top edge 3/8″ and press.
15. Fold down once more 1″ and press, then sew in place along the bottom folded edge. Backstitch the beginning and the end. Repeat with the other dress side.
16. Place both dress pieces with right sides together and pin the right side. Then sew in place along the dashed lines. Serge/zigzag stitch the raw edge.
17. Unfold your dress and place it with right sides down and place your binding tape underneath.
18. Place the unfolded binding tape with right side down onto the bottom edge of the dress and pin both edges together. Then sew slightly underneath the bottom crease as shown with the dashed lines. The distance should be about 1/8″ below the crease.
19. Fold the binding tape around to the other side of the dress, basically wrap the tape around the bottom edge.
20. Pin it in place and sew it down with a seam allowance of 1/8″ as shown on the dashed lines.
21. Unfold the dress so that the right side is facing up.
22. Fold dress in half and pin then sew the left side together. Serge/zigzag stitch.
23. Finish the threads off on both armholes and one on the bottom (not shown)
24. Secure a safety pin to one end of the tie and guide it into the casing.
25. Once you come out the end, guide it into the other side’s casing.

Thank you for the pattern! I sat down to make this but there’s no seam allowance listed.
Thanks for visiting! It’s the standard 3/8″.
Thank you! I made one last night, with a matching bucket hat. Very cute!! Thanks again for the pattern!

How long does it take to get the secret password via e mail? It is now 3:49 in the afternoon and I started signing up at 9:30 this morning! In fact, I signed up on several of other patterns on the website. Hmmm, I know I am old (67) but not senile I am capable of following directions even at my age. I read through your comments as well so I know I’ve read every step to getting the magic word. Any change my granddaughter will get the dress before she graduated from high school?
Did you check your spam folder?

Armhole template please
I just added the direct download link to the list of supplies. Thanks for checking out this post!
I want to try this pattern. I have beautiful fabric that I want to use for it. If I want just one fabric, no panels, do I just deduct seam allowances ( 3/8 *2) from the total width? Might be a silly question but I’m new to sewing!
This is a very versatile pattern. Thanks……..
