Buy the Baby/Child Kauri Dress sewing pattern from Below the Kōwhai. With a gathered waist, relaxed fit and pockets for treasure collecting, the Kauri Dress is excellent for playing in. The button bodice gives it vintage charm. It’s casual and looks down to earth in a linen or cotton. Or dress it up with sateen or velveteen and you have a brand new party dress. The Kauri Dress comes with three sleeve length options, making it the perfect dress for all seasons. This pattern is a favourite for its clean and simple lines as well as its clever construction and professional finishes.
