At last, the perfect A-line! This fully reversible baby dress gets a perfect "A" for style and fit - and it's easy and quick to sew with plenty of room for appliques and embroidery. Make as a sundress in the warmer months, or in denim or corduroy to pair with a top and tights when it gets cool.
Sizes included: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months.
Sewing level: Beginner provided you know how to buttonhole, or use the sew-in snaps option.
Pattern sizes for bigger girls 2 to 6 also in my Craftsy shop!
As with all Tie Dye Diva patterns, step by step instructions, color photos and diagrams, and computer-drafted, color-coded pattern pieces are included. Stitching lines are diagrammed right on to the photos so you never need to guess where to sew.
No serger or seam finishing needed and only 3" or less of handsewing to complete (you can also machine sew the final step if you prefer). You can substitute sew-in snaps for buttons.

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.
