The bell sleeve dress and shirt pattern is a great place to start for those who are new to sewing. With this easy pdf sewing pattern, you can learn about gathering knits, finishing with knit bands, and setting in sleeves. You can choose to sew it as a dress or a top and you can choose a short sleeve or a bell sleeve.
Upon purchase, you will be sent an email with a link to download your pattern. You can print it out on normal 8.5 x 11 printer paper, tape it together, and make yourself this lovely garment. It comes with written instructions accompanied by a picture walkthrough.
