I wanted to make a simple Autumn/Winter dress that the girls could wear over a long sleeved t.shirt and tights to keep them snug and warm. I came up with the idea for this dress from an old Simplicity pattern I have had for years for a gypsy style top that I made for Freya when she was a toddler. I used the basic pattern and just made it longer. I am really pleased with the result and shall be making lots more. This particular one was ordered for a little girls 4th birthday, her name is Daisy, hence the daisy on the front.
