Molly's Dress and Lucy Shorts by Made for Mermaids

Molly's Top and Lucy Shorts by Made for Mermaids

Megan, of Made for Mermaids and Everyday Princess dresses fame, is branching out into other PDF sewing patterns for little girls. First up (since the birth of her adorable baby boy a couple of months ago- Congrats, Megan and family!), Molly's Dress, Top or Tunic and Coordinating Lucy Shorts.

I was lucky enough to be able to test both patterns. So, I can tell you first hand that these patterns are keepers! The Molly pattern can be sewn as a dress, or a tunic, or a top. It features flutter sleeves and a gorgeous, adjustable bow in the back. I love, love, love that this pattern has NO pattern pieces to print out, tape together and cut. LOVE!! There are so many possibilities with this pattern!!

Next, let's talk about these cute, girly Lucy Shorts. How cute are they?!? The Ruffle Shorts feature an elastic waistband, four pattern pieces with ruffle measurements. It literally took me a little over one hour to sew these shorts up- it doesn't get much better- or quicker!- than that!! Even better than the short amount of time it took to whip these cute shorts up is the fact that the size four shorts take 1/2 yard of fabric for the shorts and just a little more for the ruffles! Can't.Beat.That!!

As with all of Made for Mermaids patterns, the Molly's Dress/Top/Tunic and Lucy Shorts include pictures to aid in the understanding of the written tutorial. Writing is conversational and simple to follow. I would highly recommend these patterns as a summer staple for little girls' wardrobes! (Seriously, I'm addicted to this pattern- I've already sewn a Molly dress, two tops and two pairs of Lucy Shorts in less than a week's time!)

Thanks, Megan, for the opportunity to test these patterns for you! I had lots of fun!
