Every girl needs a go-to outfit, every sewer a never-fail pattern, and this easy to sew and versatile to wear shortie/dress fits both requirements to a tee.

Casual and comfy, this is an outfit for the busy little miss in mind that can be made as either a dress or shortsuit, with a series of finishes to complete the look.

Embrace the casual with a simple sleeveless dress, or frock it up with collar and front pleats.

For the littlies who love to clamber there’s the option of stylish shorts.

The pattern features an elastic waistband and front or rear buttons, with the additional options of pockets, and sleeves (puff, mid or long).

Whether it’s parties, playgrounds or a day at home with the dolls, this is a design that stitches up some serious wardrobe mileage that can be recreated over and again with a different look each time.
