    Oh, I’d love to make this for my 3 year old. I’m trying to think how I could adapt another one of your patterns to make this for her… Maybe the glass onion if I used the front for both the front and the back, since the zipper would add ease?

    1. Shauna

      Yeah the glass onion would work well, if you used the front top bodice for the front and back since the zipper will help with dressing. The only other change, although you don’t have to do it is that the bodice line is shortened on this to give it a baby doll look. You will have to share if you make it I would love to see!

    This is so beautiful!!! Love the fabrics you’ve chosen and that ZIPPER…..perfect! Just perfect!!!

    1. Shauna

      Thanks! I am usually a button girl but oh man the right zipper makes me swoon 🙂

    So cute, and I love all the leather I am seeing you use. Where do v
    You get your leather and what kinds are the best? Can’t wait to make one of these for my girl.

    1. Shauna

      I got this leather from mood fabrics, it comes in a pelt (so not a yard or great measurement) It’s great for use on projects like this or other smaller projects, and the quality is amazing SO soft! When ever I use a faux leather I get it at Joann Fabric.

    absolutely completely adorable!! how fun to have a pattern designer for a momma!!

    Call me silly, but I saw this and gushed over it until I thought about how much of a mess my girlie is. How do those of you who sew with leather clean the kid clothes you make? I wouldn’t want to wash it if it had leather on it, but the leather makes it pop so awesomely I’d love to add something like that to the kid clothes I make.

    1. Shauna

      I just wash it in my regular wash cycle and then I let it air dry. SO far it has worked fine for me. Some leathers get a little stiff but others seem to be just fine. On the pieces that get a lot of wash or have more leather accent I use a faux leather suede cloth. Looks like leather feels like fabric and washes and dries like fabric so it’s very kid friendly. Hope that helps!

      I was just wondering the same thing, thanks for asking this question.

  10. Anna Lööf

    Your design is gorgeous! You´re such a trendsetter! I wish I could just copy your style but I end up with my old style anyway. But you are sure a source of inspiration for me 😀

  11. Mikea

    This is beautiful shauna! I have a few years but will be making this!

  12. Anne

  14. Du fil et mon

    Thank you very very much an d with the photo, it looks like easy ! Sorry for my english 🙂 Love from France !!!

  15. Aline

    This is so beautiful. I’m about to make it for my daughter – do I add any seam allowance to the pattern? If so how much?

    Many thanks for sharing this beautiful pattern with the world!

    1. Shauna

      The pattern does include a 3/8″ seam allowance. I would love to see it when you are done!

  16. Paige

    Can you please tell me if the pattern includes seam allowances or if I need to add them in? Also, should it be printed on regular 8×11″ paper or blown up? Seems a tad small to me.

    Can’t wait to make this for my daughter!

    1. Shauna

      Hi! Yes it is designed to print on 8.5″X11″ paper. Just be sure to print it at 100%. The seam allowance is included 3/8″ was used.

  17. Aline

    Ah thank you! I made it assuming that you had allowed for seams and it’s beautiful!! I couldn’t be happier. Such easy instructions and you’re a big inspiration. Many thanks!

    Como encuentro los patrones gracias….

  19. Jelsea

    What fabric did you use for this? I am in love with the color and pattern! Thank you for the beautiful pattern!

  20. Beth

    This is such a sweet pattern. Any tips for sizing up? You should definitely draft and sell the full pattern I loved it and took and sewed it for my tiny love but it was too small 🙁 I would definitely buy it if you sold it 🙂

    1. Beth

      I meant to write took a chance in sewing it for my little.

  21. Beth

    The leather is cute but I made one with a contrast fabric and just folded it over anywhere that there would not be a seam and topstitched and it came out super cute! Hope this helps!

  22. Beth

    Sorry I meant to write folded the fabric under before top stitching.

  23. Sylvia

    Beautiful items, I’m have a 17 month old grandson and I’m think he is going to get a lot of things from Granny

  24. courtney

  27. Kellie

    Love love love this top! Will be making it for my 3 year old for Christmas! How would I go about making the pattern smaller so that it’s not overwhelmingly large on her?

  28. Lundi 27

    Merci 1000 fois ! C’est superbe et ma fille va être ravie !
    Bonne journée à vous deux

  29. Vickie

    Do you use 5/8 seam allowance on girl’s dresses or less? 3/8?

    1. Shauna

      I use 3/8″ seam allowance

  30. Lundi 27

  31. Claudia

    Kisses from Portugal 🙂

  32. Hanne E

    Hi – I’ve just found your blog via craftsy – what a joy – i’m going to be busy 😉
    I’m just unsecure about the size – does 5/6 means 5-6 years or?
    Sorry, i’m from Denmark and we use another scale, either years or heights measured in cm.
    Hope you can help 🙂
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Shauna

      It is 5/6 years 🙂

  33. Amanda

    Thank you for this pattern and tutorial! It fits my 5 year old perfectly and she is very excited to wear her new shirt/dress for Easter! 🙂

  34. Renee

    Thanks, Shauna it’s most inspiring, pinned for later for my granddaughters. You are so generous, much appreciated!

  35. K

    I still have no idea how you made the high-low skirt hem. I followed the link you mentioned to the “high-low racer dress” and that too didn’t have any information on how to make one without a pattern.

  36. Ashley

    I reduced the pattern pieces down (using a dress that fits her a rough guide) and after a few trials, made one the perfect fit for my 1 year old!

  37. Sarah

    Do you have this pattern available in a smaller size? I would like it in a 2T. I am willing to purchase if you have it available.

  38. L4ur3l3i

    Thank you so much!
    Here is mine, slightly modified with long sleeves and regular hem 🙂

  39. Meg

    Can I get the pattern?

  40. Pamela

    Please tell me the name of this fabric ?

  41. Shaheen

    Thanks for sharing. I made a dress for my daughter and it fits her beautifully! Thank you!

  42. Betty

    Thanks for sharing. My daughter will love it. Greetings from Germany.

  43. Tracy

    I haven’t made this, although I love it, as my granddaughter is only a few weeks old! However I wanted to comment on how well presented your tutorial is. Highlighting the stitch lines with black dots is such a great idea and so much easier to follow!

  44. Stephanie Beliveau

    Hello! love the pattern and fabrics! Making it now, but in a different print.

    Question: when cutting out the back facing it says cut two, was I supposed to flip one?
