**note** 1/4 inch seam allowance unless otherwise stated!! Somehow this was missing on the PDF file ;) I'll make sure to add it**

This is a PDF download of a sewing pattern. I wish I could offer you the shirt at this price... but I have to pay the bills around here :) 2 files will be available for immediate download: Tummy-Topper Layering Tee Instructions and Tummy-Topper Layering Tee (the pattern pieces)

THIS IS THE TEE pattern. For the complete dress WITH sleeves you need BOTH patterns.

You will need to have:
computer/printer to download and print the pattern pieces
tape for assembly of pattern pieces
computer for reading the instructions (I don't suggest printing - to save paper and ink)
sewing machine
coordinating thread
1 yard of cotton lycra knit with at least 5% Lycra content is plenty for all sizes. Coordinating prints/dots/stripes are suggested (I highly suggest recycling old t-shirts and clothing! Requires less fabric if you use some recycled pieces in there).
Measuring tools (ruler, measuring tape)
cutting mat/scissors
Sergers/overlockers are welcomed (I use mine) but not required.
Basic sewing knowledge
Measurements of your child/customer (very important!!)
Inspiration and excitement to dream up something beautiful :)

This tee is quite the versatile pattern to have in your stash. First, it's a tee. Nice and basic. But who stays basic these days? My poor kids probably WISH I would do something basic now and then :) The tee has plenty of length for a nice wide hem at the bottom and at the sleeves. IF you're on the smaller size/scale of measurements you can expect it to be a bit long. Growing room, right? It's a slimmer fit that allows for layering under all of those lovely dresses so that they can be work all season long! Now for the good parts. Ruffles. yes, you can add ruffles. Flutter sleeves? Yes, of course I didn't leave those out. Short puffer sleeves? Uh huh, yes'sir're I added those too. Cuffs? You betcha. Short and long layered sleeves? WELL DUH of course I did that. Any combo of the above? The possibilities are endless! Dream the dream and whip up your own version in your own style. I even did one this week with a lace collar! Fun times will be had by all with this pattern. Trust me. If not? Try a margarita and then sew it again ;) Ok, I kid.

NOW, the even BETTER stuff? This pattern corresponds perfectly with my CharlieMackADoodle dress! Yes, the perfect little twirly girly dress that you can make out of your favorite Super-hero shirt.... can now have SLEEVES. Not just any sleeves, but all of the afore mentioned sleeves. See? I see possibilities here folks. A wardrobe of them. NOTE --- you will cut THIS bodice from THIS pattern and combine that with your dress pattern as noted in the instructions. I wanted to do ya'll right so I adjusted the bodice properly so that the sleeves would fit just right... and yet the original MackADoodle dress still fits right with the sleeveless arm bands. So what are you waiting for? You have things to sew, don't you?

Please respect the MANY hours that I have poured into this and do not copy, forward, re-use this pattern anywhere but in your own home. Dresses made from this pattern may be sold in small quantities in your home studios. You are not required to note my pattern, but if you chose to - thank you in advance :) I sure do appreciate it.

READ THIS PLEASE: The instructions are large and full of photos! I suggest that you DO NOT PRINT. Read them on your ipad, computer, etc or print without the photos or you might just dislike me a little when you have to go buy ink!

WARNING: this dress DOES Induce twirling. Please do not buy if you don't have leggings/shorts to wear underneath and/or seeing your loved ones twirl makes you dizzy ;)
