Merchant and Mills Childrenswear - The Trapezette Dress

  • Make a Selection

Little girl pattern for ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 years. A charmingly simple interpretation of Merchant and Mills' women's Trapeze dress. The Trapezette is simple to make with a single button back neck opening and rouleau loop closure, with fully faced armholes and neck for small people comfort. This pattern is suitable for a beginner.

This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 3 - 8 years.

Merchant and Mills' sample used their Grainne Donegal Tweed, which is a medium weight soft wool. We recommend light to medium weight wovens such as linen, soft denim chambray and fine cord. Soft wools and tweeds are also suitable for colder climates. You will also need matching thread, suitable lining for the facings like a muslin (or self fabric if using something lightweight like cotton or linen). Pick one special small button for the rouleau loop.
