My daughter loves quirky clothes and dress-ups, so this style of dress is a winner with her! But if you’re not that keen on “out there” clothes, never fear you can give this dress a very 1920’s look simply by choosing more traditional fabrics & swapping the “mo bow” for a ribbon bow or skipping the bow altogether.

The "mo bow" is so called because when I first started making this dress my daughter told me it was missing something - she's quite a character and reappeared with a costume moustache and inspired the "mo bow"!

This PDF will show you how to make, the Foxtrot Dress, in size 1-12 years. (Please note this pattern has been drafted for pre-puberty girls – the fit does not take into consideration a developing figure.) It will teach you how to put a hidden button tab into the dress and how to make a removable 'mo bow'.

Difficulty level : intermediate
Size Range: 1-12 years
Measurements: Metric & Imperial (cm's & inches)
Options: hidden or regular button back
Print Paper Size: Letter or A4 (with scaling set to none)

Made this for my granddaughters Christmas dress this year as it was a little different. The fit was great and she loved the twirl factor.

I absolutely love this pattern! I am a complete beginner and this is the first thing I have sewn. The instructions are so easy to follow - I just had to look up a couple of terms. My stitching is not great but despite that it looks fantastic and is much better quality than the nappy purses I’ve bought in the past.
