Very simple and easy to sew, this Lucy dress pattern is a reversible, open-back a-line dress pattern for sizes newborn to 12 years.

The back is open so it needs to be worn over a diaper cover, bloomers, or shorts/ trousers/ leggings. It ties at the back with fabric ties and has ruffles along the centre back seams and hem. It is fully reversible so you can pick a contrast fabric for the lining and change it every time your little one wears it!

All the cleverly-designed self-finishing seams means the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight.  And this means there is no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at!

    I love the detail the ruffle adds. My favorite part was just getting my daughter into it and watching her walk around. The open back is very cute, very fun and great for hot days. It is a fun pattern for a slightly experienced beginners. The ruffle is a bit of work if you’ve never done one, but once you get it, you’ll be fine. The detail of the ruffle and versatility of this simple pattern is so much fun. My daughter LOVED this dress. She went outside on the slide and was able to even play it in.

    The cutting out process was very quick and simple, its usually the part I hate but I quite enjoyed this one. It’s something a little different to a simple A line dress, you will learn new techniques such as French seams and adding ruffles / bows so well worth a go.

    I loved the back of this pattern. The pattern was easy enough to put together and make. I recommend this pattern to anyone who is teaching themselves like myself.

    I really loved to sew it because is really fast and the effect is really elegant!

    Simple design that gives a sweet result. Directions are easy to follow and the design allows for alterations for a cool summer top.
