    Nice to see the pattern again. A few years back I made over 50 of these dresses for a charity called "Little Dresses for Africa". Was able to use up all my bright prints and had to buy more. Quick easy and fast!!

    Adorable! They are similar to the pillowcase dresses from a while ago but I like these better. The casing with the elastic allows the dress to be pulled over the toddlers head with the straps fixed in place rather then having to tie into bows. Big improvement!

    Thank you for this! My little 9 month old granddaughter is going to visit me for 2 weeks, with her parents of course! I can't wait to make a new dress for her. I love panties (diaper covers) with ruffles too so this will be perfect. See it just proves that the universe provides us with what we need. I need to sew cute little dresses instead of a quilt. Thanks!

    Really cute! I've made these for my DGD's too but made the bias tape longer and cut in the middle so they could be tied. This way as the girls grew they could use them for tops instead of dresses!
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!
