DIY – Toddler Top / Dress

Hi all,
This is the tutorial / instruction for the free dress pattern found here.  It’s a snap collar top, but you can make yours a dress.

A half yard or less will do it, depending on what size you’re making and whether you want a dress or a shirt.   You’ll also need a couple snaps, so simple to attach with a hammer.  If you hate snaps, feel free to use buttons and buttonholes!

1. Start by downloading and printing out the Prudent Baby Snappy Toddler Top pattern. Click here

Print it at 100% for a 12-18 month size. I printed it tiled at 110%, cut it out, and taped the pieces together to make a size 2T.  You want to print on legal size paper (8.5″ X 14″) or standard 8.5″X11″ paper and tape the pieces together.  Make sure when printing this or any pattern that your print settings are not set to “shrink to fit”.  99% of the time when people say the item turned out too small, it’s because it was accidentally set to “shrink to fit”.
