This drop waist plaid dress by Rachel from Nest Full of Eggs is so sweet! She shares a free pattern for making it. It has a sleeveless bodice with a circle skirt attached. The neck comes to a V in the back, with an invisible zipper for a closure. It’s fully lined, including the circle skirt. She used a polka dot fabric for the skirt lining on hers for an unexpected pop of pattern. The pattern will make a little girl size 4 dress. If you need another size, I’m sure you could adapt a basic bodice pattern that fits your child by lengthening it to a drop waist and adding a circle skirt. Go to Nest Full of Eggs for the pattern and tutorial.
