PDF tutorial with sewing pattern: The cozy dress
Cozy, wide swinging dress with long sleeves and optional hood.
A comfy and loose fitting girl’s dress, a perfect basic pattern for all seasons.
Make it with stretchy fabric like french terry or Nicky (= winter dress), knit terry cloth (= cover up or beach dress) or jersey knit fabric (summer dress, nightgown)
The Cozy Dress is a quick sew – as easy as a T-shirt or sweatshirt.
The dress has no closures, and the front part is divided by a yoke.
Below the yoke the dress gets pretty wide, so it will swing and twirl nicely, and even heavier kids will have enough space for their tummies.
The PDF contains 21 color pages (DIN A4):
• 4 pages of instructions and cutting directions (without photos. Text in English)
• 15 pages of pattern pieces in 9 sizes (74, 80, 86, 92, 98, 104, 110,116, 122 / 9 m, 12m, 18m, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6,7)
• design examples and sewing advice
• add-on: the sewing pattern itself also comes as a large format pdf for plotter (with German labeling)
Please note: My patterns don’t include the seam allowance, it needs to be added when cutting out the pieces.
All measurements are in centimeters / meters (you can find a small printable ruler in the ebook.)
The EU-sizes used convert approximately to these US-sizes:
68=6M • 74=9M • 80=12M • 86=18M • 92=2T • 98=3T • 104=4 • 110=5• 116=6 • 122=7 • 128= 8 • 134=9 • 140=10 • 146=11 • 152=12 • 158=13 • 164=14 • 170=15
European sizes are based on children’s height. If you know your child’s height, just convert it from inches to centimeters and select the EU size according to the height.
