Sizes: Girls Age 2-12


Our Vivienne dress is the most gorgeous dress and has so many options it’s a dress that you won’t want to miss out on.

With a little help from our digital PDF sewing pattern with easy to follow step-by-step video and photo tutorials you be sure to make quite a few of these awesome stunners.

The Vivienne  dress is fitted with princess seam panels at the bodice, flowing into a flattering circle or box pleated slimmer cut skirt. It features a vintage Peter Pancollar, feature tabs with oversized decorative buttons and closes with an invisible zip at the back. Choose from sleeveless or three quarter length sleeves, knee length, short or peplum length. If you are a Frocks & Frolics addict already, you probably have a pattern with my cute short sleeves. Pssst … they fit here too.

This dress can go over a jumper as a casual school dress or be worn as a stunning flower girl dress. Whatever fabric you choose, the video and photo tutorials have you covered.                                                           Just click on the tab next to details and start watching, you won’t be able to stop yourself making not one but a whole wardrobe of Vivienne dresses for your girl.

This pattern is so special because it includes a variety of sizes,twenty altogether, in slim fit or regular so you are sure to find just the right size.    


You’ll receive an email immediately after purchase with a link to download PDF files of the pattern and instructions, which you can print at home on either A4 or US Letter paper. When choosing the pattern make sure you tick which format you need. In the US and Canada choose US letter size which is wider and shorter than A4 paper. Everywhere else opt for A4 paper format.

Si estás pensando en comprar un patrón con el cual hacer vestidos espectaculares, muy versátil, pero aún no te sientes que puedes lograrlo, pues este es tu patrón. Los tutoriales de Marina están diseñados a para personas con muy pocos conocimientos en costura. Realmente no te arrepentirás, y lo mejor puedes hacer una versión para ti también...

Just have to hang it and hem it. She loves the dress! It fits great, especially considering I had to make alterations since she was in between sizes (first time). Marina was incredibly helpful as well, I asked a lot of questions...??

I love the pattern and all the options you get with this pattern for the price. I would say this is NOT for the new/beginner as all the options may make it seem intimidating at first. If you are new and read through carefully and ask questions in her group or through messages you will come out with a very beautiful dress. There are plenty of youtube videos as well to guide you along. The designer is so willing to help don't let all the pieces scare you. You don't use all of them per dress. The circle skirt w/o pleats would be a great beginner option.
