Mariposa's is a beautiful top and dress that you will fall in love with every time you make it! The simple design leaves plenty of room for personalization, while still being quick to construct. The classic boatneck with an A-line shape is a timeless look; it's also the perfect "canvas" for customizing with cut files, embroidery, or a fussy cut fabric to give your dress that expensive, one-of-a-kind look that you love! This bodice is fitted and you can use buttons or snaps as a closure. If you're looking to really wow people, we've added beautiful, cascading circle sleeves that add flair to this top and dress. Mariposa's is gorgeous in all sorts of fabrics including chambray, linens, and silky prints! This top and dress can be made with regular quilting cottons, but the sleeves really do look better with a lighter-weight fabric that allows it to lay properly. With so many possibilities the sky is the limit now lets see what YOU can do with it!

Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape.
