  • Dress pattern for little girl

    Hello,

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a very simple dress pattern for my 4yo daughter.
    I've never made clothes before so it needs to be idiot proof - perhaps a little pillowcase style dress/ sun dress sort of thing.

    Thanks
    Laurie

    If you haven't made one before I would be tempted to get one of her dresses from last summer, unpick it and use it as a pattern. (obviously increase it to fit.) Then you will be able to see how the dress was put together.

      Or use an actual old pillowcase, make slits for arms and head holes and put it on her then you can draw onto the pillowcase in more detail where you need to cut to make the arms and headholes the right size/shape.Then you can see the right length.

      I made 5 bridesmaids dresses in a similar way.It helps alot if the child stands still.
