Baby Tay Infant Dress Pattern Update and Re-Release

Baby Tay Infant Dress

In the beginning...

Everybody starts somewhere, right?  Back in 2012, I created 6 different Basic infant dresses for my little girls to wear and hoped I would be able to sell some at local craft fairs.  I shared a photo of them online and was bombarded with requests for the patterns.  It was crazy!  I rounded up a great group of ladies to help me test the patterns to make sure they were easy to understand and actually work.  Back then, I didn't dare just grade a pattern so I actually worked up Every..Single..Size in Every..Single..Pattern.  Oh My Goodness!  It was so much work but honestly, I loved it.

As the years have passed, I look back on my oldest patterns and I've grown so much in pattern writing, designing and experience and sometimes cringe at the original patterns.  I decided a couple of years ago to update the Basic dress patterns to a new format.  As I updated, I needed to change the design on a few of them slightly and the skirt sections ended up a little more full than the originals.  Both are very cute!                   


Earlier this year, I was asked by some customers if they could have the original style pattern.  It's taken some time but have finally been able to update this pattern again and it now includes instructions for both styles.

 This is such a great pattern to work up!  The texture is fun and changing colors in different rows can give you a straight edge for the top or a ripple style for the skirt.  It includes instructions for the belt and flower also. 

I love how they turned out and hope that you'll enjoy the changes!
I've set up a special offer JUST for blog and email followers on my website.  You can get this pattern for just $1.95 through Saturday 10/28 here
