This sweet, simple little dress has stolen our hearts.  Featuring an easy a-line shape and pretty rounded petal-shaped panels that cross over at the front and fasten at the sides.

A truly versatile piece that can be made dress or tunic length, the Petal Wrap is also fully reversible, offering two looks in one.  Sew it in lightweight linen or cotton for summer, or cosy wool or corduroy for winter.

Perfect for dance coverup

Very easy to follow and construct. Great dress for quick dance coverup. They do take a lot of fabric but it's cute and my girls enjoy it.

Perfect for all seasons.

My little girl has outgrown the smaller, free Petal dress and is very sad that her favourite no longer fits. Mum(and Twig and Tale!) To the rescue. Off to make many more of this fabulous, trans-seasonal staple!
