Here’s a glimpse into my private life – this cute girls dress is one that I made ages ago and it remains one of my fondest memories. I totally forgot how little sleep I got back then, but will always remember that happy face she made when she was twirling around in this one!
I didn’t use a pattern and just ‘winged’ it, I was lucky it came out great – but how much quicker and easier it would be if I had used one of the hundreds of girl dress patterns!
This is why I put together a list of my favorite free girls dress patterns.
