Catherine is a timeless design with so many options!  The Catherine bodice features a classic boatneck and button up back.  The bodice includes both a straight and slightly arched bottom edge. The arched bodice creates a gentle hi-low skirt.

Two sleeves are included: long and 3/4 lengths. Both sleeves can be finished with either a plain and simple sleeve cuff or split sleeve that features a bow tie cuff.  For warmer weather, Catherine is perfect to use with our Sleeve Basics Add-on, and looks adorable with the cap and flutter sleeves.

Two skirts are included, full gathered and a lovely circle skirt.

Problem with skirt pattern

I have not stitched this dress yet as I cannot seem to match up the lines for the circle skirt pattern - at markers 6G 6F GI the cutting lines do not line up. I will be making a sz. 8 and will have to adjust my cutting line to where I think it should be - the pattern has a broken line! I have photos if you reply to this review & I can show you.

Always a winner

This is now my 3rd purchase from VFT (and actually VFT is the only website I purchase patterns from). I love that each pattern always comes with different choices and they are always so easy to follow. Every outfit looks AMAZING and my daughter gets so many compliments. This dress I used as a flower girl dress and it was perfect!

Catherine Dress

I love this pattern. I will definitely use it again and again .I was looking for a pattern that could be made in size 7 out of 2yards of Viyella that I had stashed years ago. I reduced the fullness of the skirt which was very appropriate, given that the fabric has a fair bit of body, I also made the cuffs on the sleeves open like a shirt. My grand daughter was absolutely delighted. A simple yet elegant dress for a special occasion.

Wonderful patterns for beginners!

I was amazed at how “easily” I was able to follow along with the step by step patterns. I still had to YouTube techniques and tips because I’m a beginner, but I made my first dress ever with VFT patterns. I’m hooked!

Easy & Adorable

First time customer and will be returning! My only complaint is that the file is huge. I’d love it if you could download the instructions separate from the black & white pattern pages. I made my girls matching charcoal Catherine dresses with embroidered bodices for Thanksgiving. The embroidery was the most time consuming. The dresses came together perfectly and they looked great!
