As I move into the world of handmade children’s clothes, I”m so happy I can count on Brindille & Twig’s sewing patterns for easy and adorable patterns to start with. Kids are way comfier in this stretchy jersey knit fabric, which is what her patterns are primarily made for. This t-shirt dress pattern was super quick and easy, and it’s a super versatile garment for a little girl’s wardrobe. It is a comfy dress that can be worn with tights or leggings. It can also be made with long sleeves as well. The pattern is provided from 0 months up to 6T. You can find my selection of jersey knit fabrics for sale in my shop section here at Busy Bee Fabric Co (formerly Sew Jersey Mama).
Head over to Brindille & Twig’s website here to find the pattern. She also has a very similar matching pattern for adults called “Flare T-Shirt Dress”. Be sure to check out the women’s pattern tab to find it!
This adorable Dino print was from Joanns, but you can find my selection of jersey knit fabrics for sale here.
Back to the dress…this is seriously an easy sew! I may have mentioned this in my cuff T-Shirt post but you can make these without a serger using a zig zag stitch, but it will be way easier with one! I highly recommend purchasing a serger if you plan to sew with knits a lot. It just makes it so much easier, and will be more professional. You may even find one in the Amazon warehouse deals. Many times the products on sale from the warehouse deals are brand new with opened or damaged packages. It’s worth a look for a deep discount.
I would love to see what you make with this pattern! Feel free to come back and post in the comments, and make sure to pin those awesome images to save for later!!
