Pattern Details






Girls, Infant/Baby



Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew a straight line
  • make a buttonhole (though I give non-buttonhole option)
  • gather fabric (but I'll show you how)

Pattern Description:

With two layers of full skirts, lace-up bodice and 'reverse knot' back, your little one will feel like a true princess in the Fairytale Dress!
Wear it as a strappy summer dress, a gorgeous jumper over a top (top pattern not included), a dramatic holiday dress, a base for a storybook character or princess costume.

Tie Dye Diva patterns always include full-sized printable patterns that are computer drafted and color coded. DIY is great, but I don't make you draft your own patterns! Take a look at the sample pages (from a different Tie Dye Diva pattern) for an example of what is included.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Sizes 12-18 months, 18-24 months; 2, 3, 4 and 5


  • Light to midweight cotton fabric without directional print, 44? wide for EACH of overskirt and underskirt: sizes under 2 years, 1 yard; larger sizes, 1.5 yards
  • 1 yard ribbon for lacing bodice, type and width of your choice
  • (Optional if you choose not to use buttonholes: 6 grommets and a grommet-setting tool; additional 2.5? x 9? piece of fabric for back loops)

Excellent Beautiful Garment good instructions!  January 10, 2013

Loved how the dress turned out, I was a little hazy for a bit on how the straps worked but they turned out splendid. FYI is you are going to make this the front is laced up with ribbon and the back is what the straps go through. I don't know why I found that part hard, but it's always good to take a deep breath! Love love love the results and I will be making another.... or maybe more :)
