Free Sewing Tutorials for Kids: Ruffled Halter Dress and Diaper Cover


I love free sewing tutorials. I scour the web and Pinterest in search of easy and adorable free patterns, and I was thrilled to run across this cute Ruffled Halter by Oliver + S. I can attest that the pattern is easy to follow, spot on size-wise, and cute as can be. I combined it with a free diaper cover pattern from Prudent Baby and improvised a bit by adding a ruffle. The Tutti Frutti fabric (a diagonal stripe and a polka dot in purple) I chose was on sale at JoAnn's for $5 a yard and it worked out well. I'm thinking about making it in the next size up with a nice cotton -- the Tutti Frutti was a little "papery," which made the ruffles stiffer than I would have liked. I'm keeping an eye out for some cute coordinating fabrics in the meantime.

Here's Little G modeling the ruffled diaper cover -- and it wasn't easy to get this photo. I have a new appreciation for photographers that specialize in toddlers!
