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.

LOVE this pattern!

I just love this pattern. I've made 17 dresses since getting the pattern. Most recently Newborn to 18 months (2 each) for my cousin who is having a little girl in January/February 2022. She loved them all and can't wait to use them.

This pattern was amazing my little girl loves her dress easy for summer and I can get creative with the design using different fabrics. The instructions were easy to follow and I would definitely recommend.

Zoe's Pooh Wrap dress

I made this dress for my new baby granddaughter,Zoe, complete with snack pocket even though she only 8 weeks old :)
Its so easy to make up with excellent instructions and looks just divine.
Pooh bear licensed fabric and lined with plain cotton in size 3-6m.
Thank you for the pattern and I can see many more being made.

Even this beginner could manage it!

Really lovely pattern that's a hit with the kids (big kids can't wait until you do something like this for 12+).

Instructions simple. Photos help. Made in an afternoon as a beginner, with interruptions. It looks smart.

The Sunny hat pattern makes for a very sweet coordinating reversible accessory too.

Darlene Bachelder (Nelson, CA)

Love this little top super easy to make and so cute. My granddaughter is too busy to wear dresses but this is the best of both world. Many more in our future 🥰

Katarina Setala (Thunder Bay, CA)

I am not sure why I am always surprised by the ease these patterns come togetherbm with. The Petal dress truly is an afternoon project that finishes up very professionally. Easy enough from someone who has never sewn before to learn on with a beautiful end result. Love the fact it is reversible too!!

Warm little cover up

I really enjoyed making this for my granddaughter. It was very easy to make and I think turned out a very pretty little tunic. I used an upcycled woollen blanket and lined with fabric from my stash. Thankyou so much for the pattern.
