the Anywhere Dress

My most recent sewing pattern was born from my desire to make a dress that was QUICK, no fuss and easy for beginners. The Anywhere Dress pattern for girls fits that bill. No gathers, ribbing, stretching or elastic. No zippers, buttons or extra pieces. This is just a simple, knit dress for girls with four sleeve options to suit every seasonal need.

The neckline is fully faced. If you don’t know what that is, you’ll be glad to learn! I just press mine well and don’t even topstitch or understitch. 

A fun fabric print makes the dress more exciting but even a simple solid is adorable.


I know these dresses are too short for some of you. NO PROBLEM! This pattern has instructions for lengthening to make it easy! Or maybe your model fits a size 12 chest measurement and a size 8 length? Just use the lengthen line to shorten it. Simple!

I shortened this one. Maybe a little too much but this girl ALWAYS wears her 2 year old brother’s shorts under skirts and dresses so it’s no big deal.
Here is page 2. Check out the measurements and fabric requirements. This pattern can last you MANY years!


These girls. They HATE taking photos. But they’ll do anything for a donut!
