This is view A - the short sleeved dress.
We've added funky fabric flowers to this one, with bright ric rac stems. And the francie has side pockets, for storing little treasures! View C can be worn as a sundress or jumper...
But we sort of have a soft spot for View B. This version of the francie dress has three-quarter sleeves and a faux button placket. (Making it out of fun Liberty prints and pairing it with tights a purple-y moccasins really was a good idea. Just ask Darison.)
So, here's the scoop on the francie...
-Shipping from the studio in November, but available for pre-order NOW!
-Girls sizes 2-14, all in one envelope
-Full size pattern pieces, fully illustrated instructions

-View A or B falls to mid calf; view C (no hemband) falls below the knee
