I’m so excited to share with you our next Mini pattern: the Mini Darling Ranges dress!
Mini Darling Ranges is an easily adaptable modern shirtdress with a gathered skirt, button-down front, and relaxed fit. It’s almost identical to the women’s Darling Ranges dress, but with kid-friendly details including a higher neckline, multiple sleeve options and the all important pockets!
If you need some extra help sewing, all of the Darling Ranges pattern tutorials (excluding bust darts) will apply to this pattern as well.
This pattern is so close to my heart and has been a long time coming! It all started three years ago when Bunny, my eldest, wanted to dress as Matilda for Book week. She had been asking for her own version of the chambray Darling Ranges sample that hung in my workroom for so long, and I decided to use Book Week as an excuse to finally do it. She loved that dress so much and wore it till it was skin tight and so short it had to be worn with leggings haha.
Let’s run through what’s included in the pattern!
