So it's not the fastest sew (as there's potentially 11 pieces to cut out)
but it turns out lovely every time and I love having sleeve options and dress or tunic options. Highly recommend!

I love this dress pattern - I've made 4 versions already; Its so quick and easy to sew up and I love mixing patterns on it. The granddaughters love how comfortable the dress is too!

Warning sensory sensitive kiddos really notice the side seams from the accent. I should have top stitched those down but my cover stitch kept skipping stitches over the thick pocket binding so I gave up to get it done for gift giving. Next go I'll try harder.
My tween loves the pockets on this tunic! She says she can easily carry her phone around listening to music while she works while wearing her comfy knit pants with no pockets.
Reminder the pocket trim center will not really be scene...so if you are trying to do a cool accent with a print you'll want that just inside the seam allowance.

This is one of the few times I have downloaded a pattern and then immediately made it. This dress is just terrific. It's a great use of heavier weight stretch knits. I used CL, but you could use ponte or maybe even interlock as long as there's enough stretch, per the pattern. The directions are clear and concise, the pattern goes together smoothly and just looks terrific. I highly recommend topstitching all the seams where you connect the side panels to the front and back panels, for a finished look. What a fun and easy pattern!

As always, this is a well-written pattern with a cute result! I had fun mixing up different prints. I always appreciate that there are several sleeve options, so this pattern will work year round.

I made 4 Violet tunics for my grand daughters ages 7 months to 7 years. This is such a wonderful and versatile pattern that pairs well with leggings. Well written instructions make this a pleasure to sew! I plan to make several more!

Love this pattern. Easy to follow instructions. A quick sew. Lots of options to make each one unique. My daughter loves it. It's great for showcasing large prints on little bodies. I will be seeing many of these for my daughter.
