Little girl's sun dress
a pattern from Japanese website, called "Handmade no kokoro". The website has a bunch of free PDF downloadable patterns for babies and kids. The dresses are for "Pay it Forward 2011" participants, for those who requested to receive kid's handmade clothes...my apologies for taking forever to do this!
The dress has only two pattern pieces: bust part and skirt part. It's really easy to make, and you can make it in so many different variations by using different fabrics or lace trims at the bottom of the skirt. The pattern is for 6 month to 2 year old, and depending on the size of a child, you can adjust the tightness of the elastic band that goes under bust.
