At last - a vintage-styled sailor dress for baby made for easy sewing. No handstitching or odd partial facings, just the details you want like a sailor collar with space for trim, appliques or monograms, a fully lined bodice, an optional sweet and secure knot-bow and no extra fuss. Button (or snap) front closure. At-knee length.
Sizes included: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months (chest measurement to about 20")
Recommended sewing experience: Advanced Beginner - requires buttonholes or press-in or sew-in snaps.
Design with no exposed seams means no serger and no seam finishing needed, not to mention, the finished dress looks beautiful inside and out.
Seaside Sailor Hat pattern NOT included but available in my Craftsy shop. I also have a Sailor Dress Pattern for big girls up to 10 and a matching dolly dress and hat bundle too.

I'm Jen Hagedorn, the designer behind Tie Dye Diva sewing patterns. My line of downloadable sewing patterns focuses on easy-to-sew and easy-to wear classic clothing designs for baby and child, with just a touch of whimsy like animal ears on fleece hats and ruffled bottoms on baby wear. I aim to make sewing a gratifying and educational process that gives you a result you're proud of.
Tie Dye Diva patterns was launched in 2007. The line currently features more than 70 unique sewing patterns for baby, children, adults and home. Besides the PDF format patterns you find on this site and at retail sites around the web, you can find Tie Dye Diva patterns in publications including:
Stash Books' Hat Shop: 25 Projects to Sew, from Practical to Fascinating (Design Collective), compiled by Suzanne Woods,
Wiley Press, Sewn Hats by Carla Hegeman, and Crim
Annie's Sewing Sew Special Baby Gifts.
I am also a workshop instructor here on Craftsy.com. My Twirl Skirt with Bloomers pattern workshop is a great way for beginning sewers to sew a beautiful garment with help available at every step of the way.
I live in Northern California with a supportive and patient husband who never complains about having serger tails sticking to his shirt, and 3 beautiful children who are great fit models, accomplished fabric-stash refolders and enthusiastic critics of my work.
