Your girl will love this dress which can be worn all year round. It's very easy to make and uses no difficult techniques. It has side pockets with polka dot trim and the cutest baby bird or the cute mama duckappliqué.

If you just dipping your feet into the brave world of sewing, you can just leave the pockets off. There are a number of cute pocket alternatives for the adventures sewist developed by Thalia, a member of our ever growing community of sewing enthusiasts. Join us and download those for a free add on to the pattern.

I would dress this one with colorful tights and a long sleeved turtle neck t-shirt. Then your girl will be comfortable as well as fashionable.

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.

Loved this pattern. It was easy to follow on the video and well explained by Marina on YouTube. I have made it twice already and will make it again I'm sure.

Great instructions

Great You Tube video instruction. It is easy to follow. I spend 3 hours to finish it. Not so bad for beginner like me. Thanks for good pattern. For my 2nd dress only 90 minutes is enough.
