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.

I made my baby several tunics and dresses for her toddler years, and I grabbed the children's pattern because this design is versatile and can be customized for seasons and made more casual or formal. This pattern hits the mark with offering a beautiful heirloom quality look, being easy to sew, and easy to customize.
Love this pattern, first time making it and it was so easy to follow. I upcycled pillowcase from the op shop for my first one very happy with the result. I now have my friends all wanting one for for their grandchildren. I can’t wait now to turn it around and make the petal wrap.
Possibly to best independent pattern I've come across. So quick and easy to make with clear instructions and little add-on's that make it a little bit more individual. Suitable for both a summer or winter wardrobe depending on the choice of fabric used. Would definitely recommend as a beginner pattern because of its simplicity. Absolutely love it.
Super easy to make and looks really professional. Thank you so much.
I made this dress for my daughter for her eighth birthday. I used the animal add on for the pathfinder vest to put ruffle sleeves and a bunny eared hoody on to the dress. The pattern was clear and easy to follow, the video tutorials for sewing the arm holes was appreciated!!
It didn’t take me long to make and my daughter loves it. It looks so comfortable and cute!
I loved making this pattern. The tutorial was detailed and led me to a beautiful finish. I made two tunic length tops for my 6 month old baby, and am eager to start on a dress.
Sorry, I have been giving all my attention to sewing masks, etc., for ‘front line’ hospital workers and have not had time to deal with your pattern. Thank you.
A necessary purchase so I can continue to make petal dresses as the girls grow! My only alteration is to make the armholes bigger so the dress fits better.
