Pattern Description:

This PDF sewing pattern will teach you how to make a reversible, open-back, a-line dress for a baby girl or toddler sizes 0-24 months.

A very simple, easy to sew pattern, it's suitable from beginner sewing level. The back is open so it needs to be worn over a diaper cover, bloomers or shorts. It ties at the back with fabric ties and has ruffles along the centre back seams and hem. It is fully reversible so you can pick a contrast fabric for the lining and change it every time your little girl wears it!

With colour step-by-step photographs and detailed instructions it is suitable for every sewer from beginner to advanced. The sewing pattern can be printed as many times as you like so you can make a whole range of dresses in different fabrics if you wish to.

All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required... and no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at! That said, if you have a serger, tips are included for when and where to use it if you wish to.

The PDF tutorial includes clear descriptive photos for every step, computer drawn printable pattern pieces for sizes 0 to 24 months, instructions on how to cut the pattern out and simple, step by step instructions to complete your dress.
