Packed with feminine sweetness, the Meri boasts of vintage inspired gathers and flare with three different styles—Short Top, Vintage Dress, or High-Low. Its front bodice has a round neckline while buttons cascade down the back. Having an empire waistline and four sleeve lengths, you can take your pick on different looks. Light gathers for the top and then luscious gathers for the high-low and vintage length make her dream of twirling a reality!
You can use a variety of woven fabrics for the Meri...rayon, cotton, chambray, lightweight linen, gauze, swiss dot, cotton voile, gingham, lightweight flannel...really anything lightweight. Because of the gathers, it has a bit of ease and therefore flows nicely in fabrics with drape.
Sizes 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 6X, 7, 8, 10, and 12 are all included in this pattern.
Shown with the Bellaire Bottoms, another JillyAtlanta pattern.

A Meri A0 file is now included in the download! What is an A0 file? It's the pattern pieces that are printed at full scale at a print shop and on a large sheet of paper. Kinda like tissue patterns! No printing or taping at home required! :)
