Kenzie’s Party Dress & Skirt
This timeless dress was inspired by my baby girl Kenzie’s 1st birthday. With classic lines and a variety of options, this pattern can be used over and over for years to come. The back of the empire waist bodice features a beautiful scooped line and the signature skirt is full and eye-catching.
With the options included, there are endless design possibilities and anyone can create an heirloom quality garment. Included are 2 sleeve and 2 skirt options for a dress, as well as directions for creating 2 different high-waisted skirts in a total of 9 sizes per pattern. The simple skirt offers simple yet classic lines and, when paired with the full sash that can be tied in beautiful bows, you really can’t go wrong.
SKILL LEVEL: This is an Intermediate level pattern, although some of the advanced beginner testers were comfortable sewing it. Most of the techniques in this pattern are relatively basic and covered in the photos. A few of the ones mentioned but not covered in much detail are hemming, clipping curves, topstitching, finishing seams, making button holes and applying double fold bias tape, though I do include some clickable links.
One more complicated technique that IS covered is a continuous bound placket, otherwise known as a dress placket. If there are techniques you would like more information on, you may visit my blog at the top of this page.
You can find complete size charts and yardage/supply requirements on the individual listings. I won’t lie, the signature skirt is a fabric hog, but it is SO worth it! We get nothing but compliments whenever Kenzie wears one of the many we own, whether the dramatic signature skirt version or the classic simple skirt.
It is important to measure your child’s chest when picking a size. Due to the scooped back, if she measures between sizes or has narrow shoulders, go DOWN a size on the bodice for the width.
As a bonus, the girls versions include design layout templates too!
