The Wee Wander Dress FREE pattern was published in the Sarah Jane website.

This pattern is a classic design that can be used for different occasions,  Your girl can dress up or down depending on the fabric that you use. It can be sewn using contrasting colors and many kinds of fabrics.

The fabric used in the dress on the picture above is from the Wee Wander collection by Michael Miller.

Your fabric options are unlimited.  Here are some ideas to select the style and fabrics for your girl’s dress:

Contrasting Floral prints are ideal for spring and a cute belt will also look great in this model.

These floral fabrics look beautiful!




Solid fabric with some texture and floral details will make a gorgeous little dress.  These details are not hard to make and can make a huge difference.




Layer lace or tulle over solid fabrics for a formal look. The dress will look great in traditional neutrals but I would make it in bold colors like this one:





The pattern can be used for any look your kid likes.

    Looking forward to making the dress thanks for pattern

  2. Jenny Kreuter

    Thanks for making this available! I am confused on the lining instructions about overlapping by 1/2 inch. Could you please elaborate? Thanks!

  3. Whitney

    This pattern is so messed up. An inexperienced sewer would be truly frustrated with it. Several adjustments had to be made.

  4. Julia

    This pattern runs huge! I’m a beginning sewer and put it together as intended and it extends over my daughter’s shoulder by more than an inch.
    Also the front center bottom pattern piece is way too long.
    I couldn’t make this dress independently and had to call in Grandma to save the day. I love the pictures and the design and hope my daughter’s dress can be saved.

    Oh my goodness! This is terrible 🙁 Im a fairly moderate sewer and the pattern has lots of flaws! Not to mention I thought this pattern was for the floral dress on the pin.. and its completely different!
    A very frustrating pattern that is advertised wrong. I just thats my fault for expecting something from a free pattern!

  6. Pamela

    Annabel, I have been trying to download the free pattern for the dress but it won’t let me. I want to make this dress for my 4 granddaughters. Please help

    Pamela don’t bother…..I spend money to get a lovely piece of fabric for the skirt and spend 3 days saving it from disaster…I don’t know if it’s just me but:
    1) the pattern pieces are wrong and don’t line up at all
    2) the skirt piece would need to be double as wide to fit with any size pleat
    3) the instructions on sewing the keyhole before turning are absurd as you can’t turn it once sewed
    and on and on…..
    I’m really angry as I don’t get a lot of time to sew for my little girl as I have 2 jobs and I was really looking forward to this now I just feel cross and frustrated at the result….
    Please don’t bother putting patterns up that mess people up.
