Flutterby Dress

Burda Kids 9494

This week’s Pattern of the Week features this charming little babydoll dress for girls. Isn’t it just adorable? We think so!

We like the optional ribbon-tie waist belt, scoop neckline, and you can choose your own type of closure; zipper, button, hook and eye fasteners, it’s up to you!  The pattern can be used to make dresses of various lengths or alternatively to make a top. We chose to make the girl’s dress in a butterfly print with a matching ribbon-tie waist belt in turquoise and blue.

Pattern: Burda Kids 9494
Fabric: Flora and Fauna Cotton Voile # 8, 112cm Wide, 100% Cotton, $12.99 per meter.
