Buy the Baby/Child Bellbird Dress sewing pattern from Below the Kōwhai. The Bellbird dress features a fully lined bodice with a button and loop closure on the back. Bell sleeves and elastic cuffs give it a vintage silhouette, or go sleeveless for summer. There are in-seam pockets for treasure collecting. The bodice comes with an optional embroidery design and tutorial, or come up with your own design! This dress has been designed with a relaxed fit and plenty of ease to wear a top underneath for winter layering.
