Who's ready for some new little girl sewing? Here's my newest sewing pattern...
Zip-It is a comfortable, easy to wear dress with loads of retro-style.
Featuring a chunky, bright coloured zipper down the front, it not only boasts funky style, it is also super easy to put on and off.
With contrast circular yoke and stand-out curved pockets, Zip-It is a bright, sunshiny dress boasting pure fun.
Don't be intimidated by the zipper - this is the easiest way of inserting a zipper you can try, perfect for a beginner!
Zip-It looks equally great on it's own or with leggings and layers on chilly days - a timeless dress for every occasion!-->
I sketched this dress over a year ago and have been looking forward to seeing it come to life ever since! Zip-It is super practical, easy to wear and features a whole heap of simple details that really bring it to life.
I think the retro-style deserves brightly coloured fabrics, but can see Zip-It working equally well with solids - perhaps a random sprinkling of buttons sewn around the yoke or a bit of simple hand-embroidery would look great too.
Lil was such a trooper taking these photos - it was freezing cold and she still was a lovely little model (with the reward of painting my toenails when we were done - such simple pleasures and I now have rainbow toes!)
Zip-It is avaliable in two size ranges: Little Zip-It for sizes 0-5 and Big Zip-It for sizes 6-10. It can be purchased as an instant download PDF pattern from my website or paper versions of the pattern will start hitting stores soon. Check out my list of stockists here.
