It is 2 ,Yes 2!! 2 Dresses in 1.
Do I sound like a salesman?I am a little bit. This little Dress is sooo simple to make. Perfect for a beginner, Superfast for a sewer with some skills. You could whip up 2 of these and 2 nappy/diapers in a couple hours for a great gift. Any little girl would love .
So away we go,
2 pieces of fabric 18"x20"
2 closures (snaps ,buttons,Velcro or whatever you like!)
Embellishment if you like
Printed Template (link at the bottom of post)
This tutorial is so easy it hardly needs instructions...........
Fold one of the pieces of fabric in half . Place pattern on fold like so. Cut one ....Fabric #1.
Do the same with Fabric #2.
This is what you should have. Put the two cut outs right sides together, pin then sew a 1/4 "seam all around the dress.
Leaving a space open for turning. As I marked above.
Turn right side out and press. Make sure to turn 1/4 inch in at the opening to match up edge for top stitching.
Now it looks like this.
Top stitch all around dress very close to the edge. This will also close the opening.
Now we need to add some closures. I use snaps cuz I love 'em. Velcro would prabably work better. And buttons would be super cute ...if you feel that spunky. These photos are from the first dress I made with all one fabric. These shows where to put the closures.
Now ,on these two little dresses I added some embellishments. I applied them using fabric glue. Easy Peasy!!
A butterfly on this one.

I stitched a blanket stitch on felt hearts here. The hearts cover up the snap backs .
The cute little back.
I hope you enjoy making this little dress. It gives two different looks for the fashion minded baby. haha
