Pattern Description:

This is a sewing pattern to make a dress for a little girl sized 1-5. It features an entirely lined bodice, asymmetrical button closure, and yards and yards of flounces. The flounces, unlike ruffles, really do bounce around with your little girl. And they twirl. The flounces are fat quarter friendly, with scraps enough left over to incorporate into a quilt, pillow, or matching doll dress. A 1/4" hemming foot is HIGHLY recommended.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 12m
  • 18m
  • 2T
  • 3T
  • 4
  • 5


  • sewing machine
  • rotary cutter and mat
  • thread
  • ball hemming foot for your sewing machine
  • 9 fat quarters of woven cotton for the flounces
  • 1 yard of fabric for the lining
  • 1/4 yard of fabric for the bodice

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 large button (1")

This is a great pattern, which clear instructions. I'm very pleased with how this dress turned out and that the ruffles are full and truly bouncy. My daughter loves it!
