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.
The Perfect Pattern Parcel #5 sale includes the little girl and tween sizes, so it will go from pre-k to pre-tween. (And beyond!)
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.
I’ve really enjoyed sewing from this Pattern Parcel, including my Everyday Yoga Pants & Asymmetrical Drape Top. Tell me, what’s your favorite pattern from the parcel? Click below to purchase, and set your own price!
