This is perfect! And so cute! Just made a really simple girly dress with no pattern too, but now I have to try this one! I love simple, quick, patternless projects!
thanks for the tutorial!
Found you through Sew mama sew!


Thanks so much for the pattern, I have some 60's polyester I got from my grandmothers stash now I have the perfect project.


How cute thanks for sharing.


This is super cute! Thanks for a great tutorial.

Oh, for CUTE! And you're able to pull it on and off, without a zip?


I make these in cotton and also in stretchy-er polyester and my Baby Pumpkinhead doesn't give me any guff about it--I'd say if you've got a squawkier kiddo about that whole pull-it-over-the-head action, then increase the chest tube size a little and you shouldn't have problems.


I might be a little obsessed with making these now. I looooove them. And love putting my scraps to good use!


omg these dresses are soo cute!!! i tried making one and though my little one likes it, i think i better try to make another one!!!! love your blog!!


Thank you so much for the amazing tutorial. It was exactly what I needed to make my little girls 1st birthday dress! I am just not sure whether to make it short with leggings or a dress with bloomers?? Check it out.


What a fantastic pattern. Thank you! I have already made two this week. I used a gather instead of pleats. I made a 4 month size and 3 year old size. I have posted pics.


I want to make one now!! I hate measuring and HATE pinning even more. Found you through Sewing @ Craft Gossip!!!
Thanks for the tutorial!


Great tutorial - sooooo easy to make i made two. I featured your tutorial on my blog with pics of the ones i made.


I think I love you. I was looking for a project to use up some fabric I bought too much of, and this was just perfect. I've never even made anything more complicated than a(n incredibly bad) tote bag, but this tutorial made me feel like a rockstar :D Now, I wonder if I can make a much bigger me for myself? Hmmm....
