YOU ARE PURCHASING A PDF FILE  – a fully graded, computer-generated pattern and an easy to follow, full-colour, step-by-step tutorial to help you make a slick and professional garment.

SKILL LEVEL – Easy (great for beginners). If you’ve never sewn with knit fabric before, there’s nothing to worry about. Use a ballpoint needle, a zig-zag stitch and a walking foot if you have one and you’re good to go.

You will need some experience of using sewing patterns and be competent at using your sewing machine and its different functions. Even a beginner should be able to make a Groove Dress in one sitting and still have time to get started on a pair of matching Play Pants with the leftover fabric.

  • An A0 print shop file is also included, for those who do not have a printer at home or who prefer not to do the taping together.

    A fabulous pattern! As a beginner, it was easy to follow and the results are gorgeous. I’ve made two with long sleeves and will definitely make some short sleeve versions for the summer! A cosy comfortable design for my little one.

    Conoci a madeit-patters en la gran abeja de la costura en un viaje a Londres y compré este patrón. En mi vida había visto algo tan genial, muchas gracias!!!

    Purchased this pattern at the Great British Sewing Bee live and had it made up within a week – which is a miracle for me! the pdf was easy to construct with great instructions – a great product and my daughter loves – can see more of these in our future :o)

  6. Claire

    Love this quick yet beautiful dress. I made some patch pockets to add to the front for special treasures (pockets would be an awesome addition to the pattern) and this is sure to be a favourite! Tempted to try the adult version next!

  7. Jennifer

    I love love LOVE this dress! I’ve only made one so far but I’ve already bought several fabrics to add to the collection. The instructions are clear and easy to follow so I was able to make the dress in an evening and therefore felt like a superstar mom. When my girl woke up in the morning to a new dress to wear to school that day she was BEYOND excited not to mention the best dressed in her class hands down;)

  8. Qwinta Van Ryckeghem

    The Groove Dress is such a great pattern. My daughter has already 4 Grooves and she loves them. She’s addicted!!! I can’t wash them fast enough…

  9. Pien van Ooijen

    I love this dress! It’s easy to make but still very stylish. I have made two for my daughter and can’t wait till I get time to sew one for myself. ???????

  14. Jill

    This is one of of the best patterns I have ever purchased! Simple and quick, yet so chic and modern. I’ve made it in both size 3 and size 7 and couldn’t be happier with the results. My daughters both love it so mucg I even purchased the adult version to attempt one for myself (even though I’ve only ever sewn for my kids!). You will not regret trying this pattern!

  15. Trine

    Thank you madeit-patterns for a well fitting- true to size, super easy to sew and simply just a beautiful pattern. It’s made for dancing <3

  16. Dagbjørt

    I absolutely LOVE this pattern and so does my daughter! I love all the options and it sews up so fast. It’s so satisfying to end up with such a great dress in only a couple of hours. There will be so many more groove dresses for me and my daughter! 🙂

  17. Gabriela

    I love this pattern, I was able to sew 2 for my girls so quickly! Fit and length was perfect on the size 2 & 4. They have requested more so I know this pattern is a winner. Madeit Patterns are top notch! Looking forward to sewing the women’s version for me too!

  18. Neulbit

    This pattern is pretty awesome. I printed, taped, cut and completed a darling dress in less than 2 hours while watching a soap opera. My daughter got her twirl and groove on right away and it was the cutest thing. I am really impressed with the quality of Madeit patterns and I will keep an eye out for all future patterns to make sure I get my hands on them as they come out. That is all 🙂

  19. Laurie

    This dress is absolutely FABULOUS!! I bought it and had one made within 90 minutes. The fit is spot on, the twirl factor is perfect and my daughter loves it!!! The groove dress really is THE dress you all need. I’d never heard of this designer before last night but now I’m a huge fan. Grab this pattern and whip up a bunch. I’m about to cut out my 2nd one now 🙂

  20. Jen Ballif

    I LOVE this pattern… I have made 3 dresses and they are all three my favorites!! The dress is fun, stylish, and definitely in trend! The fit is perfect!! I cannot say enough good things about the Groove Dress!

  21. Isis Latham

    I am absolutely in love with this dress. I made it for my 6 yr old daughter. The 6 body with size 7 length of hem and sleeves was right on the money! In ready to wear, I size up and then she is swimming in the bodice. What a wonderful surprise to see a perfect fit on her. The pattern is very professionally marked and the tutorial is modern. I just love a good pattern and tute! I even tried a new method on the neckline binding based on the pattern designers recommendation and I am pleased to say that a narrow neck has held up wear after wear. You know the kind of tugging a girl can give her clothes? Well not a busted stitch here. I can’t wait to try a Momma and Me look. Cuz, this look has got it all!

  22. Emily Ferguson

    We love, LOVE the Groove dress. I’ve already made my daughter 3 different versions. It’s twirly, fantastic, and totally groove-a-licious!
