Wrap / Reversible Girls Dress

What are you most proud of? Being made from recycled cot sheets which were presents in the first place, this dress cost me nothing but a little time! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful getting the inside and outsides the same size, this was the first time I had made a dress like this and mine aren't quite exactly the same - you only really notice it when you are ironing it, but next time I will watch this more!

You Can Make This

Q&A with VicMansfield

pj83157 asked:
where did you get the pattern for the sun dress.
VicMansfield answered:
Hi - I actually took it off a dress I had bought at some markets but am pretty sure it's a pattern from the 70
Linda Holland asked:
How do I get the pattern for this????
VicMansfield answered:
hi there is a picture posted above, however I have just realised that you can't save or print these images, the only other option Craftsy provide is to give a link to website, but I don't have a website. I have sent a request to Craftsy to see if there is anyway I can attach a PDF or something to my project and will let you know what they say - sorry I can't be of more help at the moment...
joan romanick asked:
so precious, my mom used to dress me in these in the early sixties
VicMansfield answered:
Aahhh thanks my mum used to make these for me in the 70's too, didn't realise the pattern had been around since the 60's though! Such a classic design!
