New York Minute Dress for fleece and knits 12 months to 9/10 years


Sew a quick and cozy dress in a New York minute! Sized for fairly stable knits like anti-pill fleece, polar fleece, sweatshirt fleece, velour, pique, interlock, thermal knit, french terry, etc. with 25-35% stretch. Size down in width, and you can use a stretchier knit like cotton/lycra blends.

Three neckline options, long and short sleeves, two hem choices and two pocket options, plus a bonus tutorial for making a unisex top.

Nine sizes included: 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7/8 and 9/10.
Recommended sewing experience: Beginner/Advanced Beginner.

Designed as a quick sew with no closures, New York Minute Dress pulls over the head with choices of a wide-necked facing finish, a ribbing finish, or a cozy lined or unlined hood. “Layers” option for your PDF allows you to print only the size you need for faster pattern assembly too!

No ribbing is needed, you can make this dress with just the anti-pill fleece you got a great deal on! But ribbing options add a variety of looks so you get a great value for your pattern dollar.
