If your little girl is into all things fancy, she definitely needs Nancy’s in her life! It is the ultimate of princess dresses, with its fully ruched skirt and gorgeous sleeves. The bodice is fully lined and has buttons in back for a fitted-yet-comfy design. The ruched skirt is not only gorgeous, but it also has extremely sturdy construction and is easier than it looks to sew, using our special methods on the panels. And did we mention the three sizes of sleeves? We like to call them Big, Bigger, and Biggest! Each sleeve is neatly finished with a dainty cuff your princess will love. For Nancy’s, you can use just about any lightweight wovens you want – our favorites so far are satin, taffeta, and cottons.
For the full breathtaking skirt, Nancy’s is designed to be worn with a hoop skirt underneath. The pattern tells you exactly what size of hoop skirt you will want, whether you decide to purchase one or make your own.
There is a wide range of amazing looks you can achieve using Nancy’s, whether it’s a princess she adores, a flower girl dress, or simply a gown in her favorite color. Be sure to flip through our photo gallery for inspiration!
