Kenlie’s Elastic Waistband dress is designed to eliminate the waistband seam that irritates some children, making it the perfect sensory-friendly pattern! The seam is cleverly hidden under the exposed elastic waistband in a way that keeps it out of sight and off the bellies.
Kenlie’s comes with so many options – ranging from tunic, dress and maxi dress; as well as short, ¾ and long sleeve options. It also includes pockets and an optional overlay. And for a more dramatic look you can combine your skirt and overlay lengths for the perfect combination of comfort and glam.
As a bonus, it includes 4 different appliques to cover all the seasons. Pressed on time? Kenlie also includes instructions to quickly adapt a tee you already have into a bodice! It is also available in adult sizes, so snag both and make the mommy and me sets of your dreams.
All these options let you get creative with fabric combinations, especially since the skirt and overlay can be done in woven or knit, while the bodice requires knit for stretch. The sky is the limit, and we cannot wait to see what you make.
