“No-Sew Tutu” Tester Call (newborn to 12 years)

I took my little ones to a fancy dress party recently. My son picked both of their outfits. He ended up going as a dinosaur (more on that in a future pattern release!) and firmly dictated that my daughter definitely HAD to be a fairy. Half a roll of tulle later & a few accessories and she was indeed a fairy.

It was such a quick & easy make. In fact I’ve now made several tulle tutus, including one for her first birthday photoshoot which ended up COVERED in chocolate cake (see below).

However I must admit I really struggled to find a tutorial somewhere which included the measurements for how much tulle I would need. So I worked it all out and made one. It’s going to be a free tutorial but nevertheless I’d still like to see what you all think…

And on that note, who would like to test it?!

Tester call here –

You don’t need any sewing experience (or even a sewing machine). Just some tulle, a ribbon, measuring tape and your scissors.

Best wishes,
Rebecca x

“The Alice” … Redesigned!

I’m SO excited to announce that The Alice dress pattern is now all new and completely digitised!

Pattern snippet

Reversible a-line dress PDF sewing pattern

The pattern used to be (lovingly but slightly wobbly!) hand-drawn. It’s now all digital and includes a one-page quick-glance cheat-sheet of instructions, ability to print in black & white or colour, and takes way less pages and ink to print! Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!


If you’ve purchased The Alice in the past, please send me a message with your Etsy, Craftsy or paypal receipt number and I will send you the link to download the updated version again for free.

If you haven’t bought it before, check it out and get one now!

Comments from testers:

“Lovely pattern, easy to print and assemble. It’s a great pattern for those just starting out in sewing” – Jenny Rowe

“It’s worthwhile making, two dresses in one! Photos were clear and easy to follow. They fit well with room for growth.” – Emma Newbrook

“I’m happy and kids love them!” – Michelle Brooksbank

“Can’t wait to make another one!” – Clare Humpries

“I liked the trimming of the stitching along the straps. I haven’t seen it done this way before – usually it’s notching and clipping and that takes a lot longer and doesn’t turn out as neatly. All steps were clearly explained with a photo to match.” – Shannyn Pool

“Go for it! It’s easy and sews up pretty quickly. It was my first attempt at a lined dress so the whole pattern was just fabulous” – Jane Lavelle
