Girl on the Go Sew-Along

Pattern Description

This simple pull-on dress and top is designed for knit fabrics with a little stretch. The View A dress features a fun front tie detail and short sleeves, while View B makes a classic top with 3/4-length sleeves. Both styles include a neck facing with topstitching detail and a forward shoulder for a comfortable fit. You’ll love the look, feel, and versatility of this dress and top which make great wardrobe basics for every girl on the go.

    Yes, yes. thank you so much for this stylish pattern for tweens. As my fashion forward 10 yearold granddaughter continues to want me to sew for her, I struggle to find appropriate patterns.
