This is such a fun dress to make and wear. Your daughter will be dancing and twirling about for sure. Make it for an outing or for play with the fabrics you choose.
With two sewing options, Custom Fit and Standard Fit, you can choose how you would like to make it.
With the Custom Fit: the included pattern piece, size 12 mo. -size 10 girls, is ready for you to customize your bodice and cut the sleeves. The quilt skirt has pieced tiers, giving you the freedom to add a one of a kind fabric combination.
The Standard Fit option allows you to use our bodice templates and handy cutting guides for sizes 12 mo. -size 8 and an 18” doll to create the dress without measuring the wearer or doing any calculations.
A tunic length looks great paired with the Quick Pants, also designed by SquigglyTwigs.
Sizing Guides and Fabric Requirement Charts are available on the corresponding pages above.
SquigglyTwigs Designs uses non-traditional construction techniques to make sewing fun, easy, and so quick. There are two unique techniques used in the construction of this dress. One is constructing the dress in the flat with the side seams sewn last. The other is "tricking" your sewing machine into gathering without the use of a special foot.

Miss Elizabeth is a classic. Any girl will feel like a princess in Miss Elizabeth with a dolly version to match.
Depending on the fabrics you choose, this can be the dress for a special occasion or a fun dress for a party.
The bodice back has interesting buttons and loops for the closure. Use matching buttons or add a bit of whimsy by using mismatched buttons from your button collection.
The final detail is the front flower and lace pin.
You're guaranteed a perfect fit for any size, when using the Custom Fit option and a t-shirt as a template for the bodice and measurements for the skirt.
Or use the Standard Fit option with the included bodice patterns and cutting guide and create sizes 2-8 and an 18” doll.
At SquigglyTwigs Designs, we use non-traditional techniques to make sewing easy and fun. We're always here to help you create the dress you'd like to create.
You can purchase this pattern in our Craftsy shop in the Right-Hand margin.

Update: This is our last week for the Fundraising sale. Our friends are back in their home and getting settled. We are praising the Lord with them for protection and restoration. Final sales update will be posted after April 4th.
Update: They are in a rental house through mid March. Salvageable items are being moved into the rental house today.
We've sold enough patterns so far to send $25. Keep spreading the word and enjoying our patterns.
A dear friend of mine and her family are going through a really, really tough time. She's the designer behind The Handmade Dress. The's been on bedrest for quite a while with her pregnancy. And, made a trip to the hospital during their awful storm last week. The baby and mama are fine. But,
while they were all away and it was sooooo cold, pipes burst in the attic of their home flooding everything but one room. It's a big mess. Her husband returned home from the hospital for food and found water pouring from the front door. They do have insurance, but it will be a while before that can come through.
In the meantime they are in temporary housing. She's still on bed rest. There's all sorts of wet stuff to sort through and there are 5 children to help settle.
All of this to say that they could use some help. They are always the first ones to give and help others. So,
I've placed all of our patterns on sale at .99 each in our Craftsy shop. All of the proceeds will go to them. This will continue until they are back on their feet. You'll find the Craftsy shop link in the right margin of this post. Or, follow this link.
I can't be there, I'm in Ohio and she's in Alabama, to help care and sort and clean...but I can give. If you aren't interested in patterns check our facebook page for another way to give.
