The Tröpfchen Dress Sized 6mo to 12y

Summery and breezy, this mod shift dress made from linen is a great classic addition to any summer wardrobe. The “droplet” back closes with a single statement button and the neckline and armholes are easily finished with matching bias tape. A hem facing gives the bottom hem a nice, smooth finish and clean feminine lines. The short, mini dress length keeps little legs from getting too hot in the summer. This would also look ADORABLE with wool tights and tall boots for fall and winter.

Sewing level recommended: Intermediate
