Brianne from AliCatCo and her facebook page, she made two!!!  She made the 2t size for her younger daughter then her older daughter wanted one too!!!  So, she made the 4t size for her without the petticoat for a more casual look and used an invisible zipper.

Laura from PoshFoxBoutique made the size 2t.  LOVE the fabric combination on her cute daughter and she took a picture of the hidden petticoat that makes this dress have the most fabulous twirl.

Lovely comments

  1. Brianne from AliCatCo’s size 2T was my favorite. I love how she cut the fabric! It makes the dress almost look like it goes up in the front. I’d be making a dress for my very picky niece, so I’d probably go with a solid color with a bold highlight in neon color- that’s what she’s into right now.

  2. I would love to make a red, white, and blue Lorelei Dress for 4th of July! I think it would be so cute with a Blue fabric with white polka dots for the main fabric and red fabric for the accents.

  3. What beautiful dresses! I love the first one the most. I have so many lovely fabrics, that i’m not sure which ones I would choose to make this dress out of first.

  4. I LOVED Shawna’s dress. The first design that comes to mind for me would either be an aqua and red colored dress OR doing one with a tone on tone lace overlay. Great pattern.

  5. Where can I get this pattern?

  6. What a pretty dress! They are all great but I love Emily’s version – I love how she used Target sheets! For mine, I’d use some fabric from my stash for my 4 year old. Probably some roses.

  7. My favourite would have to be Savannah’s dress made with Michael Millers ‘Glitz’, just looks so nice.

  8. Maria Rivette says:

    First one is my favorite! Not sure yet what I’ll use but maybe RB red riding hood! 🙂

  9. Fran Graham says:

    Love the design. I love classic looking dresses with twirl!

  10. These are both precious!!!

  11. I love this dress. My favorite is the blue eyelet one. Id love to do a yellow eyelet but make the tulle a few inches longer so it sticks out 2 our so inches. And the tulle in grey, my friend is doing a grey and yellow wedding in August!

  12. I love the one made out of the Michael Miller Glitz fabrics. I would make one out of some fun, colorful Art Gallery fabrics with a tie and probably without the petty coat for my 9 year old daughter.

  13. Louwisa Chairez says:

    I love them all, but my absolute favorite is the very first one! Such gorgeous fabric, with the shades of gray, red, and orange. I have a whole stash of fabric to choose from, so I’m sure I’ll make several!!

  14. Sarah Rust says:

    I really like the size 2t done by AliCatCo! The cherry fabric is so adorable! I have an eyelet fabric that I would love to use to make this dress for easter 🙂

  15. Do I have to chose a favorite not sure I can, but if I have to chose one that makes me go back to it more then others it would probably be Savannahs glittery glitz dress. I have this beautiful peachy orange fabric with white daisy’s all over it that I think would be perfect for this dress.

  16. Natasha Heimberg says:

    Lorelei dress and I would use tulle and cottons in purple for my daughter.

  17. Jennifer Callahan says:

    I love that pink with gold polka dots fabric! I really like the neck line of this dress. Something all my girls would wear, even my picky preteen.

  18. i love how it suits both the teenies and the bigger girls too!! I have a gorgeous easter fabric this will be awesome for 🙂

  19. Linda Harris says:

    I love Savannahs and the fabric she choose, Oh my. I would have to locate that fabric to make one.

  20. I love that Michael Miller Glitz one! I have no idea what I’d do for fabrics if I made one!

  21. Helen Moore says:

    I love the one with “The perfect bow”. I’m not sure what fabric I would use. I need to take the nieces shopping for their choice. Thank you for a wonderful give away.

  22. So many fabulous choices! But the one that grabbed me was the mint eyelet one!!

  23. I just bought some Michael Miller Mirror Dot fabric in black that I’d love to use for this pattern!! Especially like the first dress in the orange dot fabric.

  24. I like Jamie’s 2t. That fabric is so pretty. I would and will make my first one out of some peach eyelets I have had for a while with a lace sash.

  25. All of these dresses are beautiful, I would do a serious stash raid to choose something uber pretty to make one of these, then cross my fingers and offer up some prayers when I got to the zip part 😉

  26. I’d make a disney frozen inspired dress with this pattern! Love it!

  27. Deana W. says:

    I love the Jamie Johnson version, it’s so bright and cheerful!!

  28. I love Savannah’s version! So cute! I would let my daughter pick the fabric.

  29. Gudrun Yr says:

    I cant choose between the one Emily from Lady and the Gents made and the one Heather from AllThingsKaty made, they are both gorgeous! Id use either polkadot fabric or stripes 🙂

  30. Jaime’s dress is my favorite! I love the purple accents! I have the perfect white and turquoise floral fabric for this dress!

  31. Stacy Alfano says:

    I love the dress made out of the glitz fabric! I have some and would live to make my own dress out of it!

  32. Julia Perucca says:

    I ♥ the size 10 made by Kelly from HandmadeBoy, it is really stunning!! I would use cotton, black, purple, acqua, pfff

  33. I loved them all! I think I would make one in a pretty lightweight floral fabric

  34. Jenny WH says:

    I loved Emily’s version. I think I’d make one in navy eyelet

  35. i would LOVE to make a car patterned size 5 for my daughter!

  36. I love both the AliCat designs 2T and the PoshFox dresses, cuz I’m a sucker for little girls in pink, poofy dresses! They’re all adorable though! I would use some of the cottons from my stash to make one of these….and a matching doll dress!

  37. Emily’s version is pretty awesome! Love the doll dresses, too! I’d make a 5 & a 12 and doll dresses for my girls!

  38. jennifer says:

    very sweet pattern

  39. They are all incredible but I really love Emily’s dress and the matching doll dress.

  40. Stacey Doyon says:

    I love that first one made out of the Target clearance sheets, though it could have a little something to do with that adorable face 😉 I’d make one each for my 3yo and 6yo girlies, hopefully out of something I already have in my overwhelming stash.

  41. Very pretty has a bit of a retro feel which I love
