Maci Dress

A twirly dress is always a good option. And the Maci Dress* by Bella Sunshine Designs has lots of twirl, and plenty of options.

The pattern has three options for length: top, baby doll or full dress length.

And for sleeves, either short or long.

The skirt is a circle, which not only makes it great for twirling, but quick to sew.

In fact, this dress gives you a lot of impact for relatively little sewing time.

I sewed this version in a light cotton jersey. But the waistband, separate skirt, and bow feature give plenty of opportunities to mix things up, playing with colours and different fabric weights.

I'm always a fan of patterns that work well for winter wear, and this one does not disappoint. The long sleeves, and longer skirt make for a beautiful option in winter (with tights and a cardigan when it's actually cold).

The pattern is designed for knit fabric, and has sizes 6 months to a girls 12. The pattern is available for sale from the Bella Sunshine Design Shop.  If you're quick you can grab a copy for just $5 (usual price is $8).
