    First off I love, love, love the dress and all of the variations. Thanks for posting this great tutorial. I am a newbie sewer, so excuse all the basic questions. First on the top pattern piece you said to measure in 1.5" from the top over and down but that would make for 2" on the right hand side not 2.5". Is this correct or am I reading it wrong? On the bottom piece is the

    First off all thanks! Second off, yes I just re read my description and I will fix it right away because it is off. Sometimes late at night my mind checks out when I am writing this ha ha… So to answer your questions the best I can. The exact measurements of the pieces is not super important so you can change them to fit your needs but you want the basic shapes of the pieces shown. I did mean

    This is adorable! Thank you so much!! I can't wait to figure how to size up and make one for my little girl.

    Heather, just a tip to make this a size up, Measure around the chest divide that by 4 and that is how wide your bodice piece should be then the skirt piece should be about double that width. You can easily make both pieces longer as well. For example if I were making it for my daughter now I would extend the top piece by 1 inch and the bodice by 3 inches this gives room to grow. I hope that helps

    I can't wait to make this and the shoes for my little one!! Sewing for girls is so fun. I have been searching for a shoe pattern I like and you just happened to post this the same day. Crazy coincidence!!

    So cute! I am currently working on this dress… I am guessing that there is a 5/8&quot; seam allowance included in the pattern? I can&#39;t find anything anywhere here saying whether or not there is a seam allowance included in the pattern pieces (or if it has to be added?) and what size of seam allowance.

  16. Michelle

    The illustration of the pattern piece for the bodice (3.5&quot; tall by 4&quot; wide) and the instruction &quot;I make a rectangle that is 3.5 X 4.5 inches&quot; are not consistent… and also how big to cut the neckline is difficult to figure out. After following the black diagram, I figured out that was wrong and had to re-cut for another bodice following the written instructions (although I

    I am loving this dress soooo much!!! Thanks for the tutorial. I also have an ABBEY (spelled exactly the same way). She is now 28 years old and expecting her first baby and It&#39;s a Girl!! So this Grandma will be making some of these – thanks again!!

  18. srpprcrftr

    That dress is so adorable and you made the tutorial very understandable. Thanks for that. I don&#39;t have any girl babies to make it for but think I&#39;ll make one anyway to give away to somebody. <br /> Is it ok to sell the dresses as long as I give you credit for the idea/pattern? There might just be a market for them. I live out in country about 6 miles from nearest town which is small but

      The fabric was found at Joann Fabrics around 4 years ago so I am not sure it could be found any more. Sorry.

  35. Alexa McAllister

    Very adorable. I have memories of my daughters very many moons ago wearing a similar style, but I made them with buttons down the back…..summer and winter styles, with selves or none at all.
    Little gathered dresses look so cut on little girls.
    Love your blog…I am visiting from a Down to Earth link

    I love your Patterns! Most of all the Abbey dress…What´s about the seam allowance in your patterns? These are included or should I add them? Thanks a lot for your reply.

    1. Shauna

      Yes seam allowance is included. 3/8″ seam allowance.
