Fiona Dress & Top

The Fiona pattern comes with 2 variations: A dress and a top. Fiona has a vintage, feminine feel. Reminiscent of times past, this pattern is truly a classic. We are madly in love with this design!!

Dress: The dress features a bodice with gathered sides. The back of the dress closes with 2 buttons and side ties. The side ties are a generous length, to enable a showstopping beautiful bow to be tied. The back bottom of the dress features 2 (optional) ribbon drawstrings. When this dress is paired with our CHARLOTTE bloomers, allowing for the bloomers to peek out a bit more by drawing the dress up in the back.

Top: The top features a bodice with gathered sides. The back of the top closes with 3 buttons and side ties. The side ties are a generous length, also allowing for a showstopping beautiful bow to be tied. A gathered ruffle extends all the way around the top from front to back, for a shape and vintage appeal.

This pattern was designed to be easy to follow and is suitable for beginners. While you will need to have basic sewing skills to complete this tutorial, you don’t have to have extensive knowledge of sewing terms or techniques. NO SERGER NEEDED! All you need is a sewing machine!
