Pattern release party! The SUMMER SURPRISE DRESS/TUNIC

Here it is….. (so excited!)

My very first and very cute new pattern. The Summer Surprise dress and tunic.

This pattern is a real surprise. In front it looks like any other sleeveless dress; it even has a little bit of a sporty look.  

But when your girl turns around (act surprised…) it’s totally different and so cute! She’s like a really cute present all wrapped up in a pretty fabric and finished with this cute bow on her back.

Maybe just one more 😉

 It’s so cute every little girl should have one. And it has options…

No sleeve options (sorry) but on colder days you could just pull this cute dress over a shirt. And if you don’t like the look of the dress with a shirt under it, just make a tunic! A guaranteed succes i’m sure.


(For colder days, size 18m/86 top length)

Still not surprised? I secretly added a top length to the pattern. So, you get a dress, tunic and top version in one pattern.

(Size skinny 7/122 top length, with cotton bow)

You can make this cute dress in sizes 6 months (68 european size) to 6x/7 years (122 european size) and because some of us have those skinny kids it also has a skinny size! So all of your girls can wear this…..

(Skinny size 3/98)

So, i made you this pattern and now it’s up to you. How would you make yours? With a matching bow, or a contracting one? Maybe even use those scraps you have laying around?

(Size skinny 12m/80 tunic)

It’s all your choice. And a great advantage is that you can make this dress, tunic or top in about two hours, maybe even faster depending on your sewing level.

(This one could be from a magazine! size 2/92 dress)

(Size 6m/68 dress with extra length, she’s 9 months)

Excited yet? Did i mention that the pattern/instructions comes in both Dutch and English.

(Size 3/98 and 4/104 dress)

(Size 6m/68 tunic)

(Only 4 months old! Size 6m/68 dress. She get’s to grow in to this 😉
