Collared Shirt for Kids size 9m-16
The Collared Shirt and Dress for kids is a button front pattern designed for WOVEN fabrics. This pattern can be used to make a button front shirt or a dress with a button front bodice. Two shoulder widths make this pattern work for all children. Both versions of the pattern include full collar and collar stand, back yoke, and optional front chest pocket. The Collared Shirt features a full placket and a modern slim fit and curved hem. The length of the shirt is long enough to tuck in, but also looks great untucked. The Collared Dress version features a front button placket on the bodice, an elastic waist, and a gathered skirt with optional pockets. The length of the skirt is designed to hit just above the knee, you can use the finished dress length measurements and easily adjust the skirt length to your child's preferred length.
This pattern is designed for the Advanced Beginner to Intermediate sewist. The techniques for the enclosed shoulder seam, collar stand, and placket take a bit of practice, but are great skills to learn. This tutorial includes video links to help you through these trickier sections.
