Ellie Inspired shares a free pattern for their Ciao Bella dress for a little girl. It’s a peasant style dress that can be made with our without rows of ruffles on the skirt. It’s shown here made from an eyelet with a decorative border. The arms and the bodice are made from rectangles of fabric, with an armhole shape cut out of them. The pattern they give is actually the negative space – the shape you’ll cut out of the rectangles. The pattern comes in sizes 1 – 6. Go to their free pattern.
