Pattern Details

This gorgeous childs maxi dress sewing pattern can be made from knit or woven and has three length options (tunic, knee or maxi) and can have either a shirred or elastic casing back.

Long live the summer dress! In summer with sunscreen and sandals, in fall with trainers and a cardigan, in spring with a denim jacket and slip on shoes and… well basically whenever it’s not snowing.

The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you
want. There is also an A0 format in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

This is the childs version but it’s also available as a matching ladies pattern so you can even do matching “Mommy and Me” dresses! Get the ladies version here. Or get both as a bundle here.

    This dress is the perfect summer dress and i will be making lots more for my daughters!! My daughter was quite literally ripping it out of my hands as i finished the straps.
    Rebecca is turning out to be a great designer with lovely use of techniques in her garment making and her clear and concise instructions just make sewing them a breeze.

    It’s a fun, easy to follow pattern with a wide range of options to play with. You could really dress this up or down – depending on fabric/notion options.

    Quick, easy and so beautiful. I always love your patterns! I always learn a new technique.

    To absolutely get it as it’s a lovely look & the 3 length options give heaps of flexibility. Without distraction I think you could easily make one in an hour or just over.

    I would say it is an easy/fast sew with a beautiful outcome; lots of fabric choices to use; adding trim gives you creative freedom.

    My favorite part was the ‘big reveal’ at the end when the casing was done and it all worked out. I also loved the back elastic feature. The ‘french seam’ was a neat way to finish the bodice / skirt though and I will use it on other patterns I make.

    I love the overall look of the finished product, and that wovens can be used. Buy it now! Easy sew, but with great instructions to give neat seams and encased elastics.

    This is a wonderful sun dress pattern. It can be either formal or casual depending on your fabric choices

    As with all Rebbeca’s patterns, this one is easy to follow. Even when using techniques that are a little less common, her explanations and illustrations make it easy.

    It’s an easy pattern to follow. First time really sewing with knit and getting over an irrational fear.

    I loved the chest crossover, and the way it was put together. So fun.

The Small Print


Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.

We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.


This pattern can be used to make beautiful little garments for personal use, or can be made in limited quantities to sell. You can only sell the finished product; you cannot sell the pattern or these instructions. We’d love you to include a credit to as the pattern designer when you make garments from the pattern to sell, but it’s up to you.


As soon as you have paid you will receive a link to download the pattern, so you can get started immediately if you like. Note, this is a digital, download-only pattern. You will not receive a physical copy in the post.
