Bernadette Dress (Pattern)
Bernadette is a classic baby doll style dress with a skirt that begins just under the bustline featuring options to gather the skirt or showcase one large pleat at the center front and back. The darted bodice is close fitting, yet comfortable and the featured closure is an invisible zipper at the center back. This design is an updated replacement for our Bebe Dress, which is now out of print.
Design options include a short gathered cap sleeve, elbow length sleeve, or three-quarter length sleeve with a ruffle contrast. The skirt can be finished with a wide or narrow ruffle, bias hemband, or a wide contrasting band. There is also an option to add a contrasting ruffle or bias trim between the bodice and skirt.
This design is perfect for border prints and dreamy in rayon as well as a collection of your current favorites.The pattern includes illustrated instructions for all variations and tissue pieces for sizes XXS - XXL:
