“I made 2 of these dresses, they came out very cute! Easy to make.”

You can make this adorable flouncy sundress or top with a trendy tiered design! It looks lovely with alternating tiers of only 2 fabrics, or as many as 5 can be used for a really fun mix-it-up effect. Shorten it by following the included instructions, and you have an adorable tiered top she'll love. This is a great pattern for showcasing your favorite fabric coordinates, or mixing up your fabric stash in a whole new way!

The only needed materials for constructing the dress are fabric and bias tape - no fasteners are needed - and instructions are given for making your own bias tape from fabric if purchased bias tape is not used. Once you learn to make your own bias tape, you'll never go back to purchased! Perfect for beginning sewers on up.

Incredibly simple, easy to understand, adorable product. I used the 4 width and the 5 length for my skinny, leggy four-year-old, and she adores it. A great little project to play with after work or when you can grab time, because you'll have a dress finished in 3-4 days without having to slave over it. Great pattern!

Cute, easy to follow pattern. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is that the pattern tends to be super skinny for the lengths. Easy to fix/adjust, just my 2 cent's worth.

Very easy and fun pattern. I can see myself making several for my Grand-daughter. Wonderful way of using scraps of fabric that aren't enough for a whole dress...

Wonderful range of sizes in one pattern. My daughter wore her Flouncy Sundress more than any other last summer and always received compliments on it. I will definitely be making more, very simple and so many possibilities for mixing fabrics.

Love this pattern! Its so easy to put together, and a great way to use up fabrics leftover from other projects for the tiers. Completely adorable, fast and easy to put together ,and easy to follow pattern!

I am SO pleased with how easy this dress came together and by how beautiful it is. This is a unique way of assembling a dress with an amazing result. The explanations for making your own bias tape from a fat quarter are a huge blessing to me, well worth the cost of the pattern. One fat quarter was more than enough bias tape for the size 8 dress. There will be many more of these sweet dresses made in my house!

I LOVE this pattern! I went on a recent pattern shopping spree and this sundress is my favorite to sew! My daughter loves wearing it, too! When she says it's fast and easy to sew up, she isn't kidding! I have very little patience for sewing clothes, but this pattern has turned me around! I'm on my second sundress and trying to think of other little girls I can sew them up for! :O)

I was amazed at how quickly this dress went together. I did do my homework before I got started by making my bias the instructions are included. Such a cute dress - I would include a picture but there was no place to do that.

Awesome Beginner dress, I made it for my daughter for her 2nd birthday. easy to adjust, no hemming, no buttons, no zippers. Plan to make a few as gifts. oh and uses minimal fabric. great scrap project too.
