The Vivienne girls dress sewing pattern is fitted with princess seam panels at the bodice, flowing into a flattering circle or box pleated slimmer cut skirt. It features a vintage Peter Pan collar, feature tabs with over-sized decorative buttons and closes with an invisible zip at the back. Choose from sleeveless or three quarter length sleeves, knee length, short or peplum length. If you are a Frocks & Frolics addict already, you probably have a pattern with my cute short sleeves.

Best Pattern on the web

Posted by Tony on May 4th 2018
I've made this for my great niece three times and each one looks fantastic and unique. The pattern is so easy to follow, the video is a joy to watch. Marina explains how to make it so well, that the last time I made the dress I knew what to do because of the clear instructions. My great niece looks great in the dress, this is because each pattern for the age group is a perfect fit. I love this site so much I've ordered the Megan, the Dakota and the raglan tunic. I love the fact that when you buy a pattern you get it in a variety of age ranges, Frocks and Frolics could be greedy and make you pay for each size but they don't, so you get value for money and great tutorials. Thanks so much Keep on creating x

My Favorite Dress

Posted by Isa on Jun 24th 2017
I could go on for hours just talking about this pattern. Seriously. This is my favorite Frocks and Frolics pattern. You cannot go wrong buying this pattern. The options are truly endless. The video tutorials are like having Marina in your home waking you thru every step and you can always ask for help in the Frocks and Frolics Facebook group, they are wonderful, extremely supportive, and Marina is always there to help. The size options are incredible, Marina drafted this for every size. You do not have to worry about ease or fit. There is a pattern for an 18 in chest, 19, 20, 21, 22, etc, etc, etc. Four different skirt options, with 3 different lengths options, and sleeve options, taking all the guess work out of how to adjust or modify the dress. If you did want to modify just ask Marina and she is always more than willing to help you create something new. Just because this is not a simple Pinafore do not let that stop you from buying this pattern. A beginner could make this beautiful the first time around. Between the instruction book and video tutorials you cannot go wrong. I have made 2 circle skirts, 2 pleated skirts and a Peplum length and have another one ready to sew. This dress gets addicting because it comes out great every time. It can be made to a simple dress to play around in or a party dress or even a formal/ bridesmaid/flower girl dress. This is a versatile pattern. You won't need another princess seam dress after buying this one. The size options are so amazing that you can even you this as a sloper. Get this pattern! You will not regret it. Then come share your creations on Facebook and Instagram. Podría seguir durante horas sólo hablando de este patrón. Seriamente. Este es mi patrón favorito de Frocks y Frolics. No puedes equivocarte comprando este patrón. Las opciones son realmente infinitas. Los tutoriales en video son como tener Marina en tu casa ayudando con cada paso y siempre puedes pedir ayuda en el grupo Frocks y Frolics en Facebook, son maravillosos, extremadamente de apoyo, y Marina siempre está ahí para ayudar. Las opciones de tamaño son increíbles, Marina redactó esto para cada tamaño. Usted no tiene que preocuparse por la facilidad o ajuste. Hay un patrón para un 18" en el pecho, 19, 20, 21, 22, etc, etc, etc. Cuatro diferentes opciones de falda, con 3 diferentes opciones de largo, y las opciones de manga, teniendo todo el trabajo de cómo ajustar o modificar el vestido ya echo. Si desea modificar sólo pregunta a Marina y ella siempre está más que dispuesto a ayudarle a crear algo nuevo. Sólo porque esto no es un simple Pinafore no dejes que te impiden comprar este patrón. Un principiante podría hacer esto hermoso la primera vez alrededor. Entre el libro de instrucciones y los tutoriales en video no te puedes equivocar. He hecho 2 faldas de círculo, 2 faldas plisadas y una Peplum y tengo otro listo para coser. Este vestido se vuelve adictivo porque sale muy bien cada vez. Puede ser hecho a un vestido simple para jugar alrededor adentro o un vestido de partido o incluso un vestido formal / de la dama de honor / de la muchacha de flor. Este es un patrón versátil. Usted no necesitará otro vestido de la costura de la princesa después de comprar éste. Las opciones de tamaño son tan sorprendentes que puede incluso usar esto como un sloper. ¡Compra este patrón! No te arrepentirás. Luego ven a compartir tus creaciones en Facebook e Instagram.

Wonderful pattern. Very easy to sew even for a beginner like me. YouTube videos were great help. Marina please post a video for Dakota pattern sewn with lining.

Excelente Patrón

Si estás pensando en comprar un patrón con el cual hacer vestidos espectaculares, muy versátil, pero aún no te sientes que puedes lograrlo, pues este es tu patrón. Los tutoriales de Marina están diseñados a para personas con muy pocos conocimientos en costura. Realmente no te arrepentirás, y lo mejor puedes hacer una versión para ti también...

Excelente Patrón

Si estás pensando en comprar un patrón versatil, que te produzca vestidos espectaculares, pero aún no sabes mucho, pues este es tu vestido...Las explicaciones de Marina son tan detalladas que no podrás equivocarte ....Realmente es un patrón excelente...

Just have to hang it and hem it. She loves the dress! It fits great, especially considering I had to make alterations since she was in between sizes (first time). Marina was incredibly helpful as well, I asked a lot of questions...??

gorgeous pattern & love that it is in tween/adult sizing too


Posted by laylaandstitch on Jan 9th 2017
I love the pattern and all the options you get with this pattern for the price. I would say this is NOT for the new/beginner as all the options may make it seem intimidating at first. If you are new and read through carefully and ask questions in her group or through messages you will come out with a very beautiful dress. There are plenty of youtube videos as well to guide you along. The designer is so willing to help don't let all the pieces scare you. You don't use all of them per dress. The circle skirt w/o pleats would be a great beginner option.
