Asian-inspired shirt and dress with removable obi/sash
Sizes 8, 10, 12 and 14
Chic and sophisticated with an Asian-flair, Kyoko Tweens’ will soon become a favorite in your child’s wardrobe. It features a criss-cross bodice with three sleeve length options and a very full attached stripwork skirt in two lengths. Kyoko Tweens’ has a loose-fitting style so there’s no need for buttons, zippers or snaps. A sweet obi-style sash pulls everything together and finishes the look. For a “Just Like Me” look, our Kyoko pattern now comes sized for little girls, women and dolls (all sold separately).
