The temperature is 85 degrees. The sun is shining. It’s the perfect day for bare feet and sand between your little one’s toes. And this is the perfect dress.

Product Description

SOLEIL is a sun-loving, sleeveless, knit dress with contrast ribbing (or stretch knit) around the neck, armholes, back opening and pockets. It features a fun cutout on the back, exposed pockets on the front and a gathered (but not tooo gathered) skirt. A closed-back option is also included for more school-/church-appropriate wear.

SOLEIL comes in sizes 12 months through 12, and the waist is tapered in sizes 5 and up to prevent gaping at the back opening.

All my patterns feature: 

  • Layered pattern tiles so you can print only the sizes you want
  • Fully illustrated and easy-to-understand instructions
  • Schematic diagrams with comprehensive garment measurements so you can easily customize the fit
  • Professionally graded, colored and dashed size lines

Note: You are purchasing a digital PDF sewing pattern. You will be directed to a download page directly after purchase. You are not purchasing a finished garment.

    The way this pattern is designed it is a perfect pattern for the most beginner knit sewer. The use of ribbing on the edges made a difficult to sew thin knit not even a challenge. Her diagrams are awesome and the instructions are very clear. The way the pattern was designed made it easy to make it one size longer while making it the right width for my very tall little girl.

    LOVE the simple design with a lot of impact; straightforward to sew and very quick! This pattern at testing stage is already better than many finished patterns I’ve purchased. The illustrations are very clear and the directions are succinct. This pattern will be used time and again to create the perfect summer dress for my two daughters.

    This is a great dress. I loved how clear the directions and diagrams are, and my girls instantly loved the deep pockets and the fit. I particularly loved being able to print only the sizes I needed. That made the taping and cutting out of the PDF so much faster than normal. The sizing was also spot-on.

    This is really a beautiful dress! I can’t get enough of it. I’m still new to sewing but I decided to give this a try. It was my first time working with knits so I was nervous but I took my time. Love the option for closed back or open, and the pockets. Directions are easy to follow. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because I feel like the skirt doesn’t need to be cut so wide. You can cut off 1/2 inch to 1 inch, depending on size and still achieve the same, great results. But I’m definitely making a lot of these!!!
