Bring on the party, this dress is made for dancing! The half-circle skirt will float beautifully when twirling. The sleeveless bodice is semi-fitted, because like all my designs, it's made for growing! Layer up with a long-sleeved top or cardigan in winter, wear on its own in summer. The perfect all-year-round favourite dress!

Seam allowances are not included in the pattern, how and where to add them is explained in the tutorial. The fabric requirements below take up to 1.5cm or 3/5" seam allowance into account:

Fabric requirements, jerseys/sweatshirt knit fabrics only (min. fabric width 150 cm):

• 6-9, 9-12 Months: 0.65m

• 12-18, 18-24 Months: 0.75m

• 2-3 & 3-4 Years: 0.85m, 4-5 & 5-6 Years: 1.0m

• 6-7 & 7-8 Years: 1.1m

• 8-9 & 9-10 Years: 1.2m

• 10-11 Years: 1.6m (1.3 m with min fabric width of 160 cm)


Strip for trims:
-Sleeveless/Short Sleeves:, 15 cm length, 65 cm width.
-Long Sleeves: 30 cm length, 90 cm width
Rib knit jersey gives the best result. Alternatively you could also cut the trims out of the same fabric as the dress, or a different jersey fabric, as long as it has good stretch & recovery!

-Double sided fusible hem tape: (6-9m: 1.3m // 9-12m: 1.4m // 12-18m: 1.5m // 18-24m & 2-3y: 1.6m // 3-4y: 1.7m // 4-5y: 1.8m // 5-6y: 1.9m // 6-7y & 7-8y: 2.0m // 8-9 & 9-10: 2.2m // 10-11: 2.3m). I recommend using at least 2cm width for the baby sizes, and 2.5-3 cm for the bigger sizes.
-Jersey needle
-Twin needle (optional)

Legal Bit:
Designing, drawing and making patterns takes a lot of time and effort... It's not just a hobby, it's my livelihood!
I create these grow-along sewing patterns to use in my other line of business, which is (you guessed it!) handmade clothing. You are therefore not allowed to sell items made with this pattern.
