Pattern Description:

I love putting my little girl in dresses, but I get frustrated that store-bought dress are either too fancy for everyday wear, or too expensive for for playwear and wear out too soon. So I created a simple pattern that a beginner sewer can make and a pattern that can be easily customized by the maker (skull fabric, anyone?). You can also decide if you want it to be a tunic top or a dress!

Since this pattern doesn't take up much fabric, you can easily recycle other clothing to make it!

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 7. I started making patchwork quilts, then graduated to clothing and a few costumes. After leaving the rat race to stay home with my children, I took up sewing again to create things for my family and home.

I enjoy sewing for my children and myself, and designing patterns that anyone can make.
