Pattern Description:

The Olivia Reverse Knot dress has a criss cross bodice for that unique boutique look. You can create many different looks using coordinating fabrics. The straps are built into the front of the bodice for a quick sew and they tie into a bow through buttonholes in the back. I provide step by step instructions with many colored photos. You will also receive all pattern pieces to make the dress and if you are comfortable using a rotary cutter and mat to cut out your fabric, I have provided the measurements to cut out your pieces as well.

***The finished bodice circumference is included in the file for all sizes.

***It is easier to step in and out of a knot dress when putting it on or removing it, versus trying to pull it over your head and shoulders.

These are downloadable instructions and pattern for making an item. .

Good So cute!  April 16, 2012

I love this dress! I made it twice, but in one dress I had to insert a zipper to get it over the little girl's shoulders.

Good Really cute pattern  March 30, 2012

I really liked this pattern. Thank you for offering this pattern :) The only problem I had was, could not get the bodice and strap cut out in one piece. Don't know how she did it. (even with 45" fabric, which is unheard of these days, could not have cut out past a 2) I just cut them out separately and seamed them together. Other than that, it was easy to follow, pattern pieces were easy to join together :)

Excellent Quick, Easy and Very Cute  March 4, 2012

I loved this pattern. I made a size 6m - 12m for my friend's baby shower. The pattern instructions were very easy to follow and the results were great. I loved the dress so much that I plan to make a size 4T for my daughter.
