Great dress pattern

I love this pattern. It was so easy to follow and my daughter loves it. It's also nice that it is reversible. The directions were easy to follow and the videos included really helped when I would get a little stuck. I used snap buttons, which I don't recommend for a 1.5 year old because she opens it all the time. But next time I will use other closure options.


This pattern is so easy to sew, I loved it. I bought the animal add on too which made it cute. I'm a beginner sewer and found this nice and simple

Petal dress

Easy to follow pattern. Makes up into a beautiful dress which is reversible


What value!! Can be sewn in winter or summer fabric and has so many variations. Such an easy sew. Instructions outstanding!!

Love it!

So versatile! An easy sew with videos. The videos are amazing! I wish all designers would do this!


Love, love, love this versatile little dress. I'm a beginner sewer (and beginner Grandma :-) ) and love the simplicity of this pattern. My sewing is far from perfect, and this pattern is very forgiving. The step by step written instructions and video are clear and concise - just what I need for sewing success! Thanks so much for catering to the visual learners amongst us. The Petal Dress pattern is already a firm staple in my growing repertoire of handmade items, and has given me the confidence to expand my sewing horizons.

Very well written

Very well written and explained pattern.
Very quick to sew

Awesome Construction Details!

I just made the Twig & Dale Petal Dress and was thrilled with the construction process. Great, detailed instructions and a construction path that I had not yet done. It turned out beautifully! Just need to finish the snaps and it's good to go! Will definitely make another one!
