So many options, so little time! The Little Sister pattern gives you the option of creating a darling top and bloomers outfit or the option of creating a cute and easy dress.

Great for photographers or first birthday outfits!

This pattern was also designed to complement the Big Sister dress with matching generous ruffles and grosgrain ribbon casings. The Little Sister pattern gives you two sleeve optionsone for strappy sleeves and one for flutter sleeves that match the Big Sister.

The inspiration for the Little Sister came from my beautiful baby who is crawling everywhere and often gets snagged on dresses. The top is the perfect lengthit gives plenty of cute coverage but lets those chunky monkey legs do their thing! And as a bonus, you also have the measurements to turn it into a dress if you want to.

Imagine the all the beautiful color combinations of fabric and get creative with adding darling bows and embellishments - bow pattern and tutorial included!

This pattern is for sizes ranging newborn to size 5. The pattern includes information on preparing to sew, dimensions for cutting out the pieces, bloomers pattern pieces, yardage requirements, sizing, customization options, materials and step by step large colors photos guiding you along the sewing process. It also includes a tutorial for three fabric bow sizes.

As reviewed previously. Awesome and easy pattern to follow. Designer put step by step easy instructions in the pdf and was quick to reply to my emails when I got stuck briefly.

I absolutely loved working with this pattern. It was very very easy to make I ended up making two within a weekend and I am a beginner sewer. I had many compliments. Will definitely use patterns from this designer in future again.
