Just like our Nicole's Prairie dress except Heidi's Dress has a white collar and cuffs. A timeless style that can feel like an old fashioned prairie dress or a simple contemporary dress. It is one of my favorite everyday dresses and as you go through the options you will see that you can build it to have very different looks. The standard dress has a bodice that falls just above the waist on most women. There are small tucks in the front and back to add interest and shape. Sleeves have some gathers at the shoulder for ease of movement and can come short or long with contrast cuffs. The skirt is long and there are several different options, from a full skirt to an A-Line without any gathers. The collar may be round or square/pointed. Approximate finished length from top of shoulder to hem is 50". It is available in any of our fabrics. Be careful when ordering this dress in dark cotton colors. You may find that dark colors run a bit and discolor your collar and cuffs. This is less of a problem when using polycotton. The simplest solution is to use mid range and lighter colors for your dress so that you may wash it in cold with other lights. If you would prefer a different color for your collar and cuffs (black, navy, cream etc) just let me know when you check out.
This dress is also popular as a costume dress when one is looking for an old fashioned prairie, Little House, frontier style of dress. Our pattern is not in any way historically correct but if you are looking for a costume in a modest design, this one might be just right. Be sure to order the full gathered skirt and either short cuffed or long sleeves. It is available in sizes 6 through 2X. Plus sizes will not have any tucks at the waist. A bust and waist measurement is imperative to helping me get the fit just right for you!
