We all love sewing for the little girls we love, and the Nova Dress by Straight Grain Patterns is such a fantastic choice! As the pattern cover says, this pattern comes with soooo many options, it’s like getting multiple patterns in one. The pattern can be made with cuffed long sleeves, cap sleeves or sleeveless. The back closure can be made with an invisible zipper, a button or ties. And the front can feature flat pleats, box pleats, zigzag pleats or honeycomb pleats. And it can be made in sizes 3m - 12 years. See, I told you it came with a lot of options!
The instructions are incredibly well written and make it easy and so fun to mix and match all those options and sew up the dress of your dreams. Also, all those pleat styles may look complicated and like they aren’t for beginners, but believe me, friends, with these instructions you totally can! It’s like a pattern and a class in one!
If you would like to see more pictures of my version of this dress and read more of my gushing love for the pattern, read my blog post all about it!
This listing is for a paper sewing pattern. I do my very best to ship all paper patterns as quickly as possible because I know how excited we all get to start a new project. Don’t forget to check out the materials list in the last picture and add some gorgeous fabric for it to the cart before you check out.
