“Just a gorgeous dress. A lot of fabric - but sooo twirly. My 4 year old is living in hers.”

...designed for all those little girls who LOVE to Twirl!!

The Handmaiden's Cottage Swing Dress is very flexible in sizing with little width difference between the sizes. The length can be adjusted simply by increasing or decreasing the width of the bottom ruffles!

The pattern contains step by step instructions and lots of colored photographs!

I love this pattern! I made matching dresses for my twin grand-daughters and they turned out lovely. I will be making more for sure.

This has to be one of my most favorite little dresses! Easy to follow pattern. Clean, simple and sweet. Absolutely love it! Definitely brings vintage to mind for me.

Adorable dress. This will be a flower girl dress for a beach wedding, all in white and seafoam green. Can't wait to see it finished.

Tolle Kleider, sie sind der Hit meiner Mädchen. bisschen unklar war der Zuschnitt der Rüschen, da wird nicht immer dem Fadenlauf gefolgt, aber sonst leicht nachzuarbeiten.

Adorable dress. Takes a lot of time to cut fabric but otherwise easy to assemble. Made this for my daughter's 2nd birthday in all pink. Looks great!
