A sweet fitted sundress that's innocent-looking at the front but with a sun seeker's strappy back view, the Mackenzie Dress, by Genniewren Designs, is just perfect for spring and summer.
The fitted bodice has a V-shaped dropped waist at the front, and a natural waistline at the back. The waistline is emphasized with optional piping to show off the shape. The dress has a choice of an A-line skirt (View A) or a gathered skirt (View B). The dress fastens at the back bodice with either hook and loop tape or snaps.
The fully lined bodice is quick and simple to make, which means this is an ideal pattern to expand your skillset, particularly when choosing View A with the simple A-line skirt.
This versatile pattern comes with a list of suggestions for taking the Mackenzie Dress pattern further, including a bonus step-by-step photo tutorial showing how to use the bodice pattern pieces to make a cute reversible top.
Once you have made one of these sweet sundresses you will want to make many more. The Mackenzie Dress pattern will fast become one of your doll’s favorite dresses.
