I am so excited to share with ya'll this blogpost today. Twig + Tale is releasing the sweetest reversible wrap dress pattern today - The Petal Wrap Dress. Baby Hannah got to be my model, and I think she did a pretty great job for her first time posing. She is 3 months old, and I tested the 3-6 month size on her. This dress is perfect for all those woven fabrics that come in so many beautiful prints - quilting cottons, linens, voile, corduroy, wool, and even upcycled clothes. The size range goes from preemie to size 4 and works for all seasons. This pattern is great for a beginner or for a more seasoned seamstress who wants a quick, satisfying project.
Let me tell you the best detail of all - IT IS FREE. It will only be free for a limited time, and to get it for free, you need to join the Twig + Tale sewing community on Facebook, located here. Once you join this wonderful group of talented women who enjoy sewing and are from all around the world, you will see the code to get the pattern in the group discussion. You are going to love making this dress for your little ones or to give as a gift at baby showers!
Now, let's get into the details of the dress and tunic I have made from this pattern for Hannah. First up is the dress length.
Fabric - The first dress is made using fabric from my FAVORITE fabric designer - Anna Maria Horner. I seriously try to buy all of her prints. I love her choice of colors, saturations, and use of florals. If you have seen my quilts, they are chalked full of her fabric. On one side of the dress I used the Waltz quilting cotton print from her Garden Party collection that was released many years ago. On the reverse of the dress I used a silky soft cotton voile from her Little Folks collection, which also was from several years ago.
Isn't that reverse so sweet?
Hannah has the sweetest fat cheeks that sometimes eat up necklines on clothing, but this photo shows off that beautiful neckline on this dress.
The second item that I made Hannah is the tunic view of the Petal Wrap Dress. This one is perfect for pairing with your favorite pair of bummies, bubble shorts, or a wool diaper cover (like Hannah is wearing here). Twig and Tale also has the Tree Climber Pantaloons that would be so cute with the tunic view of this dress.
Fabric - I used a linen/cotton blend print from Heather Ross's (now OOP) Nursery Versary that has the "Itsy Itsy Spider" children's song on it. The reverse side has the Cell Structure quilting cotton print from Anna Maria Horner's Field Study line.
I love sleeveless tops on babies to show off those chubby baby arms.
Here is the reverse side showing. You can use buttons or snaps on each side of the dress to keep it together. I chose snaps on both of mine.
The hardest part of writing this post was narrowing down the photos! So, please forgive me for the photo overload! I just want to freeze time and remember how sweet this one is. The baby days can feel so long and yet pass so quickly at the same time.
Here is the reverse of her tunic. I just love both sides of it on her.
