Kitchen Towel Dress Pattern

Kitchen Towel Dress Pattern

This project can be designed in many different themes. It is double-sided and each side could be made differently. You could also modify it to be reversible. Once you make one or two then the possibilities are endless. You may copy this pattern for your own personal use but please don't resell it. You may make the towels and sell them but if you use my pattern, then please give me credit.
After printing out my PDF Pattern (located on my sidebar on the blog) cut it out. It already has a 1/4 inch seam allowance added to the pattern. Trace around the cut out pattern on to a larger piece of paper. I like to use a brown paper bag from the grocery store. This will give you a window to decide which section of fabric to cut your dress from. In quilting this is called "fussy cutting".
Usually I fold the fabric in half and after placing window around and finding the design I like best I put the pattern back into the cutout section then lift off the window. Then I just hold it down and cut around it.
This will allow you to cut two pieces at once. You may want to use a micropen and trace a cutting line.
You could also cut the pattern several times from freezer paper and iron it on and then cut it out.
