As a couple of friends have given birth to baby girls this last month, I decided to draft a pattern for a simple dress that can grow with the baby and be used as a tunic/top over trousers when it's too short to be worn as a dress.

You can download a PDF file of the pattern (in sizes 3-6, 6-9 and 9-12 months) by clicking above.




  1. 1

    Cut two pieces from your fabric and place them right sides together. Pin if you want - I admit I am a lazy seamstress so if I can get away with it I don't...

  2. 2

    Stitch down each side of the dress. Iron the seams open.

  3. 3

    Sew bias binding around the bottom hem, and the armholes.

  4. 4

    At the top (on both front and back) fold down 5mm and iron. Then fold down a further 10-12mm and iron. Stitch to make a casing.

  5. 5

    Take about 1m of bias binding, fold in half and stitch along the entire length to make ties.

  6. 6

    Use a safety pin to thread the ties through the casings. Thread one wooden bead onto each end of the ties and knot to secure. Tie a bow - and you're done!
