All articles may include affiliate links

The best thing about sewing is your ability to customize anything you want, which is what Blooms and Bugs did with this sewing pattern. Their child loves butterflies so they used the freezer paper stenciling technique to add the butterflies to this easy comfortable knit dress.

This is a super simple pattern that is jazzed up with the butterfly, and pocket details. Use a contrasting fabric for the straps and neckline binding to give it extra pizazz.

This is a fun and quick way to try something you have never tried before, and the ability to add whatever design butterfly or dinosaur, etc. to this dress. Customize it to whatever your child desires with an easy-to-follow tutorial with step-by-step pictures.
