What a great pattern!

I really enjoyed sewing this fun sweet Petal Tunic! The instructions are well written and the video is very helpful to get you through all the steps. I decided not to put a pocket on so as not to take away from the cats but I will on my next one! The T&T Chat group on FB is great for inspiration and for asking questions. I look forward to making more T&T patterns! Thanks so much for this free pattern to get me started!

5 star free pattern!

So grateful for this free pattern and this lovely little dress. I've made the tunic version (12-18 mo size) and will probably make the full dress in 2 yo size soon. I winged the ruffles because I don't have the other patterns (but would love to try the hoods sometime!). As is, I want to make this for all the babies/toddlers I know and may have to buy the child-size version when they get older! Thank you Twig&Tale!

So quick and easy to make!

I absolutely love this free pattern! I made the 0-3 month size for my 7 week old granddaughter using upcycled fabrics, and am so pleased with how it turned out. I also love that it's reversible!
I'm new to sewing garments so the instructions and the video were very helpful. I know that I'll be making many more of these as this little one grows up

I absolutely love this pattern! The video was super easy to follow and my four year old loves it!

fantastic quick project

My daughter was thrilled with this dress. I made a size 10 (she's a very tall 7-year-old) and it looks great on her. Nice to find a pattern that fits her but is still not to "old" for her.
I am a novice sewer - only been at it for 3 months. This was by far the easiest pattern I've encountered - great step-by-step instructions, easy to print (especially when you can just print the size you want) and excellent tips from the blog/videos. I'm very happy with the result - it looks so good for a beginner sewer project! I immediately went on to purchase other patterns from you.
Thank you so much

Grandmother (Wartburg, US)

I made the dress in a size 4. A better seamstress would have given this a 5. The instruction video was excellent, yet I still found myself ripping out seams.

This dress is so easy and fun to make. I can't wait to make many more. Next time I will try mixing up the material a little bit.
