This dress is something like you have never seen before A lot of volume, beautiful fabric, a sweet little girl and some magic are what make an amazing Peppermint Swirl Dress.
It's not a circle skirt, and it(tm)s not a rectangular gathered skirt; it's so much more! There are flounces upon flounces sewn together into an unbelievable creation.
Whether you are looking for a perfect and unique holiday dress, or a fun summer dress, this is the dress that will offer you the most unique creation you(tm)ve ever made.
This pattern carries all sizes from 6m through 10y and has two sizing options: slim fit and regular fit.
Fully color-coded pattern pieces, length charts, hints and tips throughout sewing make this dress an easy sew, regardless of the intricate design.
A coloring page has been added to the pattern, so you and the fortunate little girl the dress is for, can design your own Peppermint Swirl color combination!
This dress has flutter sleeves that give a playful style and an extra opportunity to combine fabrics, but you can make the dress sleeveless too. On top of that, all sleeves that are provided in the Candy Castle Princess pattern (long slim sleeves, classy elbow length sleeves, puffy sleeves) are interchangeable with the Peppermint Swirl dress!
Now you will have infinite dress options!
This dress falls below the knee to a classy tea length and closes with snaps or buttons in the back.
Although the design appears to be intricate and complex, do not let this fool you: the step-by-step instructions and spot-on pictures will help even an adventurous beginner create this beauty of a dress.
You do not need a serger for this dress.
Recommended fabric for this dress: you can use any light- to medium weight woven fabric that you feel comfortable sewing with.

I haven't sewed in over 25 years but when I saw this pattern, I knew I had to give it a try. It looks complicated but it turns out it was very easy to do! I look forward to sewing more of these for my granddaughter. It's a beautiful dress and I'll update the photo with a picture of her wearing it!
