Pattern Description:

Butterfly Baby is the sister pattern to Butterfly Dreams, already in the shop, for sizes 1-16. It has the same overlapping petals and three different sleeve lengths (sleeveless, short sleeve, or long sleeve) but it is all one piece instead of a tunic/skirt and includes matching bloomers. It buttons in the back and includes an optional underskirt of tulle. The matching doll pattern is included in this pattern for 15" and 18" dolls.

The overlapping petals are fun to sew and create a unique look that can be dressy or casual depending on your fabrics. You can go from an elegant tea or wedding, change the skirt to pants, and be comfortable and stylish for the reception. Great holiday look but works well for everyday wear as well.
