The Trapezette Little Girl Pattern - Merchant and Mills

Regular price £15.00 Sale

Little girl pattern for ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 years. A charmingly simple interpretation of our Trapeze dress with a huge amount of swish factor.

Skill level; Beginner

The Trapezette is simple to make with a single button back neck opening and rouleau loop and fully faced armholes and neck for small people comfort. We have made our sample using a medium weight soft wool. We recommend light to medium weight wovens such as linen, soft denim chambray and fine cord. Soft wools and tweeds are also suitable for colder climates. You will also need matching thread, suitable lining for the facings like a muslin (or self fabric if using something lightweight like cotton or linen). Pick one special small button for the rouleau loop. This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 3 – 8 years.
