St Tropez Top or Dress - Pattern by Mummykins & Me

 
School holidays have recently ended here in my part of the world, but before they did, we spent a week in the country on my parents property in the South West of Western Australia.
 
Whist there I captured my young Miss in her new St Tropez dress, designed by Mummykins & Me.
 

 
This sweet - almost peasant style dress - is A-line in shape, with generous full sleeves or can be made completely sleeveless. It has a front pleat & a gathered, button enclosed feature back. You can also choose to add belt loops as I did (all directions and pattern pieces included.) 

 
It has enough features, while stilling appearing simplistic so can be worn on any occasion. The sizes included are Newborn to girls size 12. This pattern also has a MUMMY version too!! So you can match! (If you so desire!)

 
I would rate the pattern suitable for advanced beginners or intermediate. It has a buttonhole closure on the back - although you could choose to use snaps or add an elastic loop instead. It is an incredibly neat sew, inside and out. No serger required on this one!
 

 
The pattern gives directions for making your own bias, however store bought is just as suitable - particularly if your contrasting with your fabric.  

Olympic torch bearer in the making! Grandad's roses are just so perfect!

 

 
The children's St Tropez is designed for woven fabrics and what with all the Pokemon Go hype that's currently happening, I was lucky enough to find some adorable Pikachu floral!

 
I loved the neatness of this sew and the completely different looks you get with the sleeved and sleeveless versions. My daughter loves wearing this dress and that is a winning pattern in my books!
 
As always, Rebecca's patterns are very well written and step by step photos of each step given. Lets also not forget the layering option when it comes to printing the pattern too!
