Inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous album cover art for the Velvet Underground, this dress is perfect for summer. It’s light weight, not clingy or tight, it says “relaxing” to me.
The pattern comes in two sizes (6-12 months and 3-4 years), with printable pattern pieces, step-by-step photos to guide you along, and lots of info. The best part is….its FREE! If you’ve never tried out one of our patterns, now you can!
There are two variations on the dress:
Since my husband and I are headed on vacation to Italy, I made the Italy version for our 4 year-old. Hopefully when she spots that Italian boot, she’ll have a small grasp on where in the world her parents have gone.
The construction of this dress is really quite simple and soon you’ll find yourself making all sorts of variations on it. Make a shirt, make a Shortie, make one for YOU?!
My favorite part of this dress has to be the yoke, which ties in a bow over the shoulder. Make the bow as small or large as you like. It’s feminine without being over-the-top.
For a more modest look or for cooler months, you can easily throw a t-shirt underneath or a sweater on top. Add leggings as well!
Ready to try it out? Excellent. It’s FREE!
And that’s it! Of course when you’re done with your version of the dress, we’d love you to share it with us. Add it to the YOU MADE IT flickr group.
