This versatile dress pattern goes together quickly. It's easy to create different looks by varying fabric, sleeve length, and skirt length. Make the above the knee dress length in a fancy fabric, or add lace and you've got a special occasion dress. Choose a playful knit, a shorter length, and leggings for a cute birthday party outfit, or get ready for the outdoors in the shirt length and jeans.
The Tri-City Knit has a curved empire waist for a flattering look and Velcros® in back. The pattern includes 3 length variations (above the knee, mini, and long t-shirt), and 3 sleeve length variations (long, three-quarter, and short). Mix and match to create, create, create!

This turned out so cute .. I used little girls leggings I purchased on clearance for the fabric. The sleeves can be a bit of a challenge because they are small, but with lots of pins and sewing carefully, it turned out perfectly. I made matching leggings, and the outfit sold as soon as i posted it. Also .. it fit well, so very happy about that, no changes in the pattern were necessary. Thanks Gaby!
Love this pattern very quick and easy to make. great way to use up some of your scraps of knit. Check out the matching patterns for both the 18" and BB sizes. I've made all 3 sizes.
