Pattern Description:

Now a little background, I am a big Phineas and Ferb fan... yeah I know, its a kids show. But it is one of those kids shows that knows adults are often watching and puts in hilarious jokes for us! An episode lately had the kids creating a mash up of summer and winter and calling it {Swinter}. I thought this was such a fun idea and went to work making a dress that could be worn in both summer and winter, the Swinter Dress:

This is the pattern for the top. IT IS ONLY 1 PAGE. The dress bottom I will describe how to make but you don't need a pattern. This is for a 18 month toddler. To enlarge I would copy it going up by 20% for every year you need (aka if you have a 3 year old I would copy it at 120%). Obviously before you cut fabric hold the pattern up to your chica and make sure it looks right.

You can find the tutorial for the bottom here:
