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.

Petal dress

Wonderful love the pattern easy to follow thankyou I haven’t made it yet but hopefully soon

easy and beautiful

an esay pattern whit a great result

Adorable dresses; easy to follow pattern

Pattern was very easy to follow with clear instructions. A quick sew even for this “adventurous beginner” sewist. The dresses came out great.

Perfect pattern

Great patten. Very clear instructions. I made a reversible cotton print dress in size 12-18m using the largest pocket and self drafted sleeve ruffles. The lining encloses the seams for a neat finish.

Simple, fun, easy sew.

The pattern is so simple and versatile, it uses just a tiny bit of material and is scrappy friendly, which I adore. This one is tunic length, I already have one more tunic and four dresses cut, and ready to sew. With a bit of imagination, you can do a lot of things with this pattern. Enjoy!

Printing the patter

the whole concept of being able to download a pattern is great and these come with all the sizes easily marked etc. But I did struggle with the printing of the pattern and specifically the chosen size and ended up with multiple copies. Of course this could be due to my printer and its software. Other than that I look forward to making my first item from Twig and Tale Bx

Timeless Classic

The Tulip Wrap Dress & Tunic is such a timeless style, popular across generation. This pattern, in particular, is simple enough for even the earliest beginner seamstress!


The instructions were lovely! I'm an beginner to intermediate sewist & sometimes struggle with the instructions but these were perfect!
