I have had this pattern for ages but haven't got around to making it until it was almost too late. Issy will be five soon, but wears a size 7 or more, and this pattern only goes to a size 6 (oops!). So I tried my hand at scaling a pattern up with excellent results :) I made this out of an owl fleece I found on special at Spotlight. It's lovely and snuggly and makes a nice change from the usual pink she would choose :) The pattern shows the dress in a plain red: but I think it works nicely in a medium sized print. To scale it up I did the following: I cut the two body pattern pieces on the fold but moved them in from the fold by about three quarters of an inch (so adding 1.5 inches in width to both pieces, in the centre of the pattern piece). This only works because the pattern was straight at this point and the neckline wasn't too skewed by this. I couldn't have done this with a v-neck without thinking a bit more carefully on this.
