Vivienne Teen Dress
The Vivienne truly is a couture pattern. Every single size was drafted individually, with different bust sizes per size, so you are sure to find the size that fits you like a glove. It has an optional collar, optional 3/4 length sleeves, a low back and five choices for the skirt. The circle skirt can be either plain, peated or gathered, the standard straight skirt can be either gathered or pleated. The closure is a conceiled zip and it finished off this stunning design. It isn’t a beginner project though. You do need to be able to work very tidily for a stunning result. But on the other hand, don’t be intimidated if you don’t have much experience – that is what all my video support is for. You can use the videos for the girls Vivienne two and double up on your options. Create a bubble hem dress for your teen girl and she will rush back to mummy made clothes! Check out the customer gallery below for some fabulous customer dresses.
Teen sizes 14 – 18. This is equivalent to ladies XS,S,M and L.

This dress is fitted and you don’t want it to be loose-fitting. If you are making this dress for a special occasion such as a wedding reception, I would choose a gorgeous silk dupion. But for a lovely summer dress you need something more comfortable. To achieve this, choose a cotton sateen with around 3 % Lycra or Elastane. Sateen is not the same as satin! Satin drapes very well and sateen does not. It has a subtle sheen but creates a more structural silhouette. This works especially well with pleated skirts.
