You can find a free pattern for a simple jersey dress for toddler girl over at Prudent Baby. The pattern will make a simple sleeveless bodice that you can use to make two versions of a loose fit sundress – one with a basic gathered skirt, and one with a tiered gathered skirt. The tutorial shows how to include pockets in the side seams of the skirt. The pattern is for a size 2T/3T. If you need a different size, you could make your own by tracing around a tank top that fits your child. Go to the pattern and tutorial.
