This dress pattern runs from age 1-2 up to 10-12.

Sew a lovely Kitty dress or top with help from this digital PDF sewing pattern and step-by-step video and photo tutorials.

This pattern comes in dress and top length and a slender and regular fit.

Add pockets decorative trim and you are away.  It’s versatile and great for the summer but also looks fabulous with a t-shirt in the colder season.

It's aimed at the intermediate level and has a gorgeous round yoke which I lined in contrast fabric. A yoke is probably one of the challenging details of sewing. To give you some options I included a cheat’s version in the written instructions and also a slightly easier option using a layered top as shown on the picture of Magdalena wearing the check top. Just scroll down to the video and have a look.

The cat pockets were the main attraction on this dress and are still included in each pattern. You can also leave them off for a different look. These instructions also show you how to bind the edges of the seams for a couture look. As an example I made a dress with a wide hem trim featuring my favorite VW van, the pattern for this is also included in the pattern.

If you have made a pattern of mine this is definitely upping the stakes a bit, as I added a fastening to the back. It’s an easy way to fasten a garment and the technique is the same as you would use for a gentlemen's sleeve opening.

Whether you are an expert or just starting out the video tutorial will make it very clear what you have to do. If you are unsure if you can handle this pattern then simply watch the video to reassure yourself before you purchase the pattern.

The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away.

None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.

Love this pattern and the YouTube video that gives Step by step instructions is amazing (as are all videos from Frocks and frolics). The yoke sits beautifully and this pattern can be made as a dress or a top. Looks so professional when sewn up.

AWESOME!
