“This was an easy dress to make. I enjoyed making and arranging the flowers on the front. The technique was a little different but not hard, my dgd has lots of compliments on this dress.”
Remarkably simple to create! Remarkably comfortable to wear! The "Secret Garden" Dress is a gentle A-line tank dress with flowers cascading from the neckline. Great worn alone on those hot summer days but just as easily with a top underneath to take it into those colder months. The "Secret Garden" DRESS has been designed with very simplified construction so that it can be made up quickly. Instructions are provided for optional armhole and bottom ruffle as well. This dress is beautiful and modern looking. Sure to be a favorite!
Also, in typical LILYGIGGLE fashion, I created this "Secret Garden" Dress out of an XL women's t-shirt!
All LilyGiggle patterns are computer drafted and are color coded to make them easy to put together and to keep sizes accurate. Each PDF also includes a very detailed tutorial with lots of color photographs and diagrams demonstrating each step of creating the design. The tutorials are written with terminology explained so you'll know what it means to say things such as "right sides together". :) My hope is to create PDFs that will take away the frustration of using a traditional big box store pattern and put the fun back into sewing.

haven't tried this one out yet, but can't wait to start creating for my beautiful granddaughter. Also have neices with little girls that I can picture this cute dress on as well.
I made dresses for my two granddaughters from this pattern. They are getting into the "tweens", so it's hard to find patterns for them that are pretty, but not too childish. This dress is perfect! I usually don't like sewing with knits, but the dress went together easily, and it turned out beautifully. I loved it.
I love this pattern. Easy to follow and you can use this technique on purchased items as well.
