“My favorite pattern to sew”
This “Forget Me Knot” dress is versatile enough to become a year-round wardrobe staple. Layer it over a short or long-sleeved top or over a turtleneck. In winter, pair it with tights, leggings or jeans for a variety of looks. Adjust the skirt length to your preference. The possibilities are many and this dress can be made for a special occasion or everyday wear.
Tapered petal-shaped straps provide a nice contrast to the main bodice. Knots can be put on both the front and back or solely on the front. Another optional feature is the apron front, which you can embellish in a multitude of ways to express your unique creativity.
Mixing and matching multiple coordinating fabrics make this a fun and interesting project. This pattern is suitable for a beginner if you are up to the challenge of learning how to make buttonholes. There is a reference for free instructions.
The Forget Me Knot dress is sure to become a classic.

My favorite pattern to sew
I have used this pattern several times and it turns out beautiful everytime! Love it-
I have used this pattern at least 10 or 15 times, it's perfect, easy to personalize, and very quick. It's nice that all the seams are finished so well - this should be everyone's go to knot dress pattern.
Have made this several times. Makes such a cute gift!
I have made many many many of these and they are all just precious! I love how cute. It's not a quick to do pattern but the end result is well worth the effort.
so easy and love
I love this pattern, it has been my go to dress/top and it's been so fun to come up with different ways to make each one original. I love that it can be worn year round and we always get compliments when the dresses are worn. Thanks so much.
My favorite dress ever!
Easy, and well written and illustrated pattern. Makes a very sweet dress, with lots of compliments. Try using 3-4 coodinating fabrics for a one of a kind look. Thank you for this pattern!!
Love this pattern, I just wish it came in larger sizes. Sizes seem true and instructions are thorough. I've made many of these and will continue.
Great pattern and instructions! So easy even for a beginner.
Hands down my favorite dress pattern ever. Runs a bit small in the bodice. So easy to put together. THe instructions are perfect and it's the perfect little dress.
simple, great instructions, great end result although i did set the strap into the back of the dress instead of knotting for comfort purposes still a great dress!
Cute little dress!
I like the end result, but was confused about the lining for the bodice. First one I made came out very stiff. Next one I made, I did not use lining all the way up and it was much better.
I recommend sizing up if you want to get longer wear out of this pattern since the bodice runs a tad narrow. Otherwise this is a great pattern. I've used it three times and all three dresses are adorable. I love the fact that this dress can be used year round. They can be worn as a sundress or layered with a t shirt or long sleeved shirt. My daughters also love that the skirt has some twirl to it.
This was so easy to make and made the cutest dress. Thank you.
Made these as Christmas dresses. They were a hit with everyone at the mall for Santa pictures. They are 2 years old and the girls still love to wear them.
Very easy to make with detailed instructions and pictures. Got lots of compliments on it.
So pretty. Easy to follow- tons of fabric, but totally worth it!!!
I made a dress from this pattern for my grandaughter and it came out great.
Love it! sews well
This pattern is very easy to follow with clear directions. I did find the pattern to be small. The first one I made, I had to take the bodice completely apart and add an additional 2 under each arm and I did measure my girl first!
Very good and clear instructions and illustrations. Easy to put together, very versatile and can easily change it up!!
I've made 4 of these so far, they're quick and easy to put together. I loved the pattern and clear instructions. These dresses all turn out so cute and have such different looks depending on what fabric you pick.
What a wonderful pattern! Love this! Made this in less than a school day while it was just me and the babe at home. So easy and yet SO CUTE!! Thanks for a reat pattern!
I loved this pattern for my little girl. It was so easy to make and follow. I wish there was one for bigger girls! My older daughter wants a dress for her, she's a size 12. Any work being done on a bigger pattern?
I loved this pattern. Very easy to follow. I looked everywhere for a pattern for this knot apron dress and couldn't find one and when this one came out I had to have it. You can do so many things with this dress. Thanks Lori!!!!!!!!
Love this Pattern! So easy to follow. . .terrific for beginner! My Little girl loves this dress. . .perfect twirl and soo comfortable! Highly Recommend!
Soooo easy! I'm brand new to sewing and this pattern was so easy to follow. Made my daughter 3 dresses already and everyone keeps commenting on how cute they are.
This pattern is very straightforward and easy to follow. My only advice is to measure your child before you cut the fabric, especially around the chest and belly! I made this for my niece, without measuring her, and she was only able to wear it once.
