Are you ready to get creative?
This dress is something like you have never seen before…
A lot of volume, beautiful fabric, a sweet little kid and some magic are what make an amazing Peppermint Swirl Dress.
It’s not a circle skirt, and it’s not a rectangular gathered skirt; it’s so much more! There are flounces upon flounces sewn together into an unbelievable creation.
Whether you are looking for a perfect and unique holiday dress, or a fun summer dress, this is the dress that will offer you the most unique creation you’ve ever made.
This pattern carries all sizes from 6m through 10y and has two sizing options: slim fit and regular fit.
Professionally drafted pattern pieces, length charts, hints and tips throughout sewing make this dress an easy sew, regardless of the intricate design.
A coloring page has been added to the pattern, so you and the fortunate little kid the dress is for, can design your own Peppermint Swirl color combination!
This dress has flutter sleeves that give a playful style and an extra opportunity to combine fabrics, but you can make the dress sleeveless too.
Would you rather have some sleeves with your dress? The Swizzle Sticks Sleeves are a pattern add-on designed for the Peppermint Swirl Dress.
On top of that, the sleeves that are provided in the Candy Castle Princess pattern (playful puffy sleeves) are interchangeable with the Peppermint Swirl dress!
This dress falls below the knee to a classy tea length and closes with snaps or buttons in the back.
Although the design appears to be intricate and complex, do not let this fool you: the step-by-step instructions and spot-on pictures will help even a beginner create this beauty of a dress. This pattern was specifically aimed at and thoroughly tested by beginner seamstresses.
You do not need a serger for this dress.
Recommended fabric for this dress: you can use any light- to medium weight woven fabric that you feel comfortable sewing with.
