This dress grows with your child! Ties at the shoulders allow the dress to be adjusted lengthwise and the loose fit at the chest accommodates a growing child over several summers.
For those of you who have visited my tutorial blog, http://indietutes.blogspot.com/, you will be familiar with the free instructions on how to make this dress. I have been asked several times to make available my own bodice pieces I use to make my patchwork twirlers. Here they are! In this ePattern is the bodice pattern pieces are full dimensions to make tiered patchwork twirler dresses, not included in the free tutorial. Please contact me if you have questions.
This ePattern is a fully illustrated 14 page ebook, including two hand drawn multi-size pattern pieces that will be sent to your email inbox within 24 hours of purchase. Pattern pieces are to be printed out on a 1:1 scale on a regular printer. No need to resize or tape together pages. This ePattern is neat and complete.
Remember to include an email address where you would like your PDF ePattern to be sent to.
The Tiered Patchwork Twirler uses between 1 and 2 yards of fabric, though the dress can be made entirely from scraps from other projects. This is also a great project for reconstructing or recycling other garments and soft furnishings.
There is no zippers or buttons. A good pattern for a beginning sewer (though, admittedly, time consuming).
This pattern contains multiple sizes:
for children US sizes 2 – 7
or chest measurements 20” to 26”.
