FREE PATTERN: Garden Party Dress

I'm so excited to share the pattern I've made for the Garden Party Dress.  


It is partially lined and features a curved yoke, back button placket, gathered skirt and cap sleeves.  I've also included the pattern pieces for a peter pan collar or long sleeves.  It's a one-of-a-kind dress, so I only have the pattern pieces I drafted for a size 18 months dress.  

If you would like to share this pattern please link to this page and kindly give credit to Owly Baby.  Please do NOT use photos of my family.  Thanks!  

Garden Party Dress - Size 18 months ONLY

You will need:
1 yard of fabric for the skirt (I recommend lightweight fabrics)
1/2 yard of fabric for the bodice, lining and cap sleeves
2-3 buttons
scraps of interfacing

I've included minimal sewing directions and pattern assembly instructions on the pattern pieces.  

Share photos of your finished Garden Party Dresses in the Owly Baby Flickr pool!  I'd love to see what you've made!

  1. Oh I wish I could found your blog sooner. I would like to sew a cardigan for my 4y daughter. Although it´s really nice to know you.
    And thanks for sharing free patterns. I will try to resize this pattern for my daughter. I find that every little girl look very adorable in a yoke dress with peterpan collar. When I finish I will post to my blog at with link to you.

  4. Holy cow I love this dress! I made one in quilting cotton for my daughters first birthday dress and it fits perfectly. It was such a quick sew I'm kind of itching to do another. Could you offer any advice/instructions on attaching the Peter pan collar, I've never done one and can't quite get my head around it. Thanks!!!

  6. Will it really not fit a 2-year-old kid? Aww! I just loved the dress, she looks so cute. I am organizing a birthday party for my 2-year-old daughter in a very pretty Chicago event space and I was hoping if this dress could fit her. My daughter is just like her.
