This plain dress is made from a conservative Mennonite pattern and is the basic dress you will find in plain churches. The skirt zips in the back and comes in a standard sleeve length that is about 3/4 length on most girls. A small round collar can be added to the neckline and the older girl's collar is a bit smaller than the collar for younger girls. Sizes 1 through 3 have a regular gathered skirt. Sizes 4-14 have an elastic waist. If you like a simple dress, don't be afraid to try this one out. It's a little different in that it has a beautiful A-Line skirt which is much slimmer at the top than the bottom. The A-Line skirt along with the elastic waist creates a nice trim look. Back ties may be added at the side seams in sizes 1-3. Because of the way the skirt is cut, we would recommend using our Tropical Breeze poly/cottons for this dress. If you need adult plain dresses, on our ladies dress pages you will find a couple standard cape dresses to choose from.
Approximate finished length is about 2" longer than the lengths found in the size charts below. You may shorten or lengthen as an option above. If you have a child who does not fit into a size fairly close to her age, please use the contact form at the top of the page to drop us a note so that we can help you with sizing.
