(6 customer reviews)

The girl’s Vivienne Dress Sewing Pattern creates a fitted dress 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, features tabs with over-sized decorative buttons, and closes with an invisible zip at the back. There’s plenty of flexibility and options with the girls Vivienne Dress pattern, choose from sleeveless or three quarter length sleeves, knee-length, short, or peplum length. As shown in the gallery it makes a fabulous combo with the ‘Wonderland Cardigan’ and the ‘Western Blouse’ for a school uniform.

This girl’s Vivienne Dress pattern is fitted and you don’t want it to be too loose-fitting. If you are making this dress for a special occasion such as a wedding reception or other big festivities, I would choose a gorgeous Dupion silk. But for a lovely summer dress, you need something more comfortable. To achieve this, choose a cotton sateen with around 3 % Lycra or Elastane. Sateen is not the same as satin! Satin drapes very well and sateen does not. It has a subtle sheen but creates a more structural silhouette. This works especially well with pleated skirts. Check out the customer gallery to see what they have created with the most gorgeous fabrics.

    These flower girl dresses were made using the Vivienne Pattern and also using the sleeve from the Isabella. Marina is amazing and so are all her patterns. She literally thinks of everything. I especially love that within sizes there are variations such as slim, regular and sport. Now that's ingenious and makes your work so much easier! Multiple times I had questions, and she was just an amazing resource! I have learned so much from her and love to watch her videos. With the help of the videos, I felt very confident and allowed myself to just take my time and not rush. I felt very proud when people said I can't believe you made those dresses! Thank you Marina!

    Elegant, versatile, has several options and most importantly it is tailored fitted for my child. This dress fits her like a glove in slender version. I like that a slender version is added to this pattern because going a size down or up would not give me that perfect fit but more like what you find in stores. Once again I learned something new, like how to apply invisible zipper with the lining and to achieve professional finish we all look for in handmade dresses. Every time we wear Vivienne we get so many compliments.

    My daughter looked so chic at her First Holy Communion. She was thrilled and so was I. This is a superb pattern!
