Beachy Boatneck Dress

 This month I had the pleasure of participating as a contestant in Flip this Pattern over at Frances Suzanne and now it’s time to vote!

When I sew for my kids I like to keep things simple and comfortable so the Beachy Boatneck was right up my alley! My little lady is pretty against shirts and pants lately so I decided to stick with what she loves and ended up with this fun dress!Beachy Boatneck Dress

Based on the size chart I went with the 3t for my 4 year old and then narrowed it down just a touch more for a more feminine fit. I chopped off my pattern just below the arms and lengthened the facing to match. I ended up shortening the sleeves as well. For the skirt I went with a simple a-line and added in some fullness to give it a nice twirl factor. The neckline was widened just a touch as well; my kids have round noggins 🙂

I really wanted a sash to break up my prints but for a play dress I knew I didn’t want to worry about keeping it tied so instead I top stitched a sweet and simple faux sash to the front bodice. I left it off the back to give the dress enough stretch to easily get it on and off
