Looking for the perfect year round dress that is loaded with options? Well, Taylor's Shift Dress & Top is to the rescue. This top and dress has the modern shift / sheath style dress along with a gathered skirt option. You can choose to do simple skirt or a hem band on either the shift or the gathered skirt option too. Choose between a classic scoop neckline or go a little more retro with the square neckline. Taylor can be made as a tank, with short sleeves or longs sleeves to accommodate year round wear. The best part is the key hole back that ties in a cute bow. This pattern has NO closures, it simply slides over the childs head and ties in the back, making this a very fast and easy sew.
These tulip shorts are just the cutest. They are fully lined. This pattern is 2 shorts pattern in one. You can make the cute side tulip version or you can make the girly ruffle version. Either way you go, you are sure to have the perfectly cute (and perfectly fitting) shorts. Pair leggings under the shorts for year round wear. Embellish the tulips with buttons or bows. You can even use specialty fabrics (like sequin) for the front for a very unique and on trend look. These shorts have a flat front so no bunching at the crotch. Don't like ruffles, skip them and add your favorite trim such as crochet lace, pom poms, piping, ric rac... so many options.
