The imaginative Balloon Fold Dress can be worn not one, not two but three different ways, how’s that for multifunctional? Simply fling it on and wear it full length. Tuck it up and under and you’ve got a short puffball dress. Pull it up and over to waist height and you’ve got a trendy skirt and top.

This playful, interactive Balloon Fold Dress will keep your child amused all day long. We know one little girl who likes to hide snacks in the fold of the skirt to be eaten throughout the day. And another who likes to keep her kitten close by, snuggled inside. But beware if your little one likes playing with small creatures, they might just end up inside too.

    I would love to make them for my girls age 11 and 13…
    They would be ideal for travelling light!!!
    Thinking of purchasing the pattern and altering it, but if there are plans to make this pattern for (young) adults then I will wait.

    Seriously I absolutely love it!

      Hi Pia, thank you for your comment, it is something we are considering because it has been requested quite a few times from customers. However, it is not high on our priority list so it is more likely something we will do next year rather than this year.

    A really quick project – I made 2 in an evening, but one that my kids absolutely love.

    Is a great design! also very quick to sew. You will have 3 dress in one, perfect for girls that like to play dress up.
