Sunki Dress Pattern from Figgy’s (tween sizing!)

The Sunki Dress pattern has grown up! It’s now available in tween sizes; and you can get yours as a bonus pattern in the Tween Pattern Parcel #5.

I think I’m the biggest Sunki Dress pattern fan on the planet. I made 2 for my niece last year, and it’s just as cute on toddlers as it is on big girls.

Just like my 80’s Sunki Dress, I used faux leather for the inserts and added a back yoke for a fun twist. Bella’s dress has a narrower yoke with a bit of a curve.

I also used the Sunki dress pattern to make a bitty denim and lace version.

I was excited to find out I get to make this dress for my uber cool tween daughter. I knew the style would be suitable for her fashion aesthetic, because it’s not frilly with just the right amount of edge. It’s kind of hard to get her in a dress, y’all.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be making another one. They can easily be made in knit, which is a huge bonus. It’s actually designed a little short, as sort of a dress/tunic hybrid to be worn with leggings. My brat is kind of short so she can totally wear it as a dress until it gets chillier.

I used a herringbone wool in grey, and it highly recommend a lining for this type of fabric.

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    This dress looks amazing. Of course, the model helps. If you are only able to get her in a few dresses, this dress is definitely worth her waiting for. Love the faux leather detail. Super cool.

    I love the herringbone wool fabric, Amy. Reminds me of clothes I wore many moons ago.

    If you have made a dress that Bella will wear you know it is a winner!! I think I would like one in my size. I love the addition of the pleather and am sure that bumped the technical difficulty up a notch or 2!! Great job Amy and it looks like the perfect fall/winter dress!
