This gorgeous dress is perfect for any special occasion! The sweetheart neckline and the extra wide straps that tie in a big bow through a buttonhole in the back of the bodice give this dress such a romantic and feminine look. The back bodice can be shirred using elastic thread, or choose the elastic casing option and 1/8” elastic if you dislike shirring. The three tiered skirt looks lovely sewn using just one fabric, or use three different prints for a more eclectic look The ruffles between the tiers give the dress just the right amount of fanciness to make this the perfect party dress. There is also a second version with ruched ruffles that are sewn over the seams between the tiers, after the skirt is put together. Make the straps double sided, or save some fabric with the single sided version. This tutorial is suitable for a beginner with some solid sewing experience or an intermediate seamstress. If you are comfortable with gathering and making buttonholes, chances are you will have no problem with sewing the Juliette dress. Sizes 6-12 months through 8 are included.
