BABYDOLL DRESS PATTERN
This time we introduce the lovely babydoll dress pattern Plum, a super wearable and comfy dress with drop shoulders, inseam pockets (obviously!) and a relaxed fit. The dress comes with two different skirt lengths, mini or midi, as well as 3/4 sleeves and cuffs or no sleeves and a cute ruffle, perfect for the Summer months. Apart from this, the back bodice features a button placket to be able to put the dress on and off easily, the skirt is gathered and the neckline is finished with bias tape (explained on a YouTube tutorial for the Plum Dress).
With lots of detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results, Plum will become a staple in your wardrobe the whole year.
