Mermaid dress: Girls Laurel

The Girls Laurel Knit Tunic and Dress by Petite Stitchery* got an update and I got to sew the newest update. The pattern has lots of options. It includes a round and a v-neck, it has several sleeve lengths and it includes a tunic and dress length. So a versatile pattern that can be used for summer dresses (or tunics) as well as for fall sewing!

Our girls loves the dress because of the length. The longer the dress, the more she likes it and this dress is much longer than her normal dresses. She also loves the ruffle at the bottom of the dress. It makes the mermaid dress with the mermaid fabric look like the tail of a mermaid, what more could a girl want!


I love the V-neckline of this pattern and the method of the sleeves. I forgot to make a close up picture of the sleeve but it is a fold back kind of sleeve at the bottom. It looks really cute and gives a nice opportunity to use a different fabric for the “cuff” of the sleeve. It is a quick and easy pattern and the ruffle can even be made from woven which is a nice bonus. It is now on sale!


Fabric: I bought the stripes during a sale at Joyfits, the mermaid fabric comes from de Stoffenstraat and the green fabric was a find in the exchange pile of our sewing weekend
