    My little girl will be 2 in July and she is very much wanting to be independant! Thanks for the tutorial. The top is beautiful!

    Yes, I posted before..I just L-O-V-E this! Do you think it might work with different fabric as a baptismal gown? I&#39;ve been asked to make one for my niece and wanted something timeless but with clean lines? I will have the fun challenge of converting it to 6 months size 🙂

  12. Shauna@shwinandshwin

    @ pearls for my girls,<br />Yes I think it would work as a baptismal gown and the pattern is really pretty simple to make you would just need a top that is size 6 month to get started. I think it could really easily handle a little puff sleeve as well if you wanted for the gown. It would be elegant and beautiful!

    Just finished, except for button hole – going to ask Mum to help me with that bit! Love it! Attempted to line it as well because the fabric was quite thin and quite pleased with how it went. Just off on holiday to Turkey and my 2 year old will look absolutely gorgeous in her new dress. Love all your ideas and will most definitely be back for more. Many thanks, Lorianne Vibert from sunny Jersey,

    Thank you for this great tutorial! Still working on a better collar and piping (just not very good at it!) but overall my friends gifts for their cute girls turned out nice! Thanks!

  22. Ashton Ricks

    This is a great tutorial! I made several for my daughter and put up pictures and now a friend is asking for one for her daughters birthday. Her daughter is a size 4T while mine just turned a year old so I have nothing to go off of for measurements for the yoke. I have tried piecing it together with measurements from my nephews 4T shirts but it isn&#39;t really working since I don&#39;t physically

  27. Jasmijn Geutjes

    Thanks for this super cute pattern and tutorial. This is my second garment I made and it turned out pretty well. I used a girly flower fabric on the outside and a plaid fabric for piping and the lining. I made this size (without seamallowence for my daughter who is 13 monts. It fits like a short dress and hopefully next year as a top….<br />

    Hi, love the pattern. are the seam allowances included in the pattern? It doesn&#39;t say in the instructions or the pattern pieces. Could you clarify? Thanks!

  41. ce_tj_hamilton

    Hi 3 quick questions:

    1) What size button please?
    2) If using store bought piping is there a standard size etc?
    3) Also can you confirm that printing at 100% is correct size?

    Thanks in advance 🙂

  42. Marty

    What size of seam allowance did you use for the Blackbird pattern?

  43. Kathryn Schmidt

    This is a great pattern and tutorial. I was doing some spring cleaning during the Covid19 lock-down of our state, when I came across some seersucker pants that I loved, but no longer fit me. I figured there had to be enough material in those pants to make something for my petite 3 year old granddaughter. In searching the internet for a pattern (because I couldn’t go out and buy one) I found this! It seemed like fate, because it had the same thin-striped type color scheme as my pants. Since I needed to make it larger I also decided to turn it into a dress and use the pockets that were already made within my pants. It took a little thinking but I got it to work. I just cut the front at the waistline and added the piping to get them to work. I love the piping idea by the way. I too had some old shoe laces that were the cord kind that worked beautifully to create the piping. Thank you so much for sharing this cute easy to make pattern. I only wish I knew how to attach a picture so you could see my version.
