Free pattern: First Birthday Dress

Free pattern: First Birthday DressJess from The Sewing Rabbit shares a free pattern for making her First Birthday Dress.  She designed the dress as a special present for a friend’s daughter’s first birthday.  It’s a simple A-line dress from knit fabric, with a deep ruffle at the bottom and pretty flutter sleeves.  It’s quick to sew up (she says less than 1 nap time) and takes less than a yard of fabric.  As you’d expect, the free pattern comes in a 12 month size.  If you need another size, you could adapt it or draw your own pattern using a t-shirt that fits your child as a sizing guide and her pattern as a shaping guide.  Go to The Sewing Rabbit to get her pattern and the tutorial.
