Amelie is a top and a dress with a bow in the back; a gorgeous detail that can be made both cute and cool depending on your fabric choices. The neckline is sewn with a clean finish binding and the sleeves are slightly gathered. The dress is knee length and the waist is also gathered.

Fabric: Light to medium weight knit fabric, for example cotton/lycra jersey, with good stretch and recovery. Heavier knit, such as college or sweatshirt, is also good, but for the binding you should use light-weight knit.
This is an estimate of how much fabric you’ll need, based on pre-washed/pre-shrunk fabrics with 150 cm width (60”).
Sewing machine with a stretch needle. You can also use a serger/overlocker, but you don’t need to.
Choose a size based on your child’s chest width. The bodice has 1,4 cm (almost 5/8”) positive ease which means that the finished garment will be 1,4 cm (almost 5/8”) larger than the chest measurement of that size. If the child is between sizes, I recommend that you choose the larger size.
