I'm planning on making a simple dress for my 4-year-old little sister for Christmas. I have beyond-adorable fabric, but am in search of a good pattern. Who has any suggestions for a good, simple, easy to comprehend pattern for my project? Any and all will be appreciated! Thanks

justanyothergurl - I don't know any patterns that you can use, per se, but you can go online an check out most of the pattern companies for styles.

A simpler way is to look at a dress she already owns and that flatters her. If you are using woven, look at a woven dress, or if knit, then use a knit dress for a pattern. Find a good one and copy it. Mostly, little girls patterns aren't that complicated. Just remember to add a little for seam allowances(if woven) and to give her room to grow. This isn't much, at most 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Look at a multiple size pattern to see about how much her size differs from the next up. Mainly, add a little in the hem, since most growth is length in kids. That'll give her a little longer to wear it.

Vintage patterns from the secondhand store also work as some styles are timeless. Good luck!

It depends of course on the fabric, but how about this...
