Miss Matilda Dress and Top Pattern from The Cottage Mama: Now Available!

Today is very happy day for me where I get to announce another new pattern from The Cottage Mama summer collection…………

The Miss Matilda Dress and Top

The Miss Matilda is named after my own little Matilda (seen in these pictures) and is available right now in PDF and will be available in paper at the end of June. Like I said when I released the ‘Georgia‘ pattern, I have been working behind the scenes on these patterns for months and am so thrilled to finally be able to share these designs with you.

If you would like to purchase this pattern, you can find it HERE.

MISS MATILDA DESCRIPTIONThe Miss Matilda Dress and Top is the perfect, classic outfit for your darling little lady. It is feminine and sophisticated while still casual enough for every day. View A, the Miss Matilda Dress, is a knee length gathered skirt dress with a small ruffle running down the front bodice and around the neck. The dress buttons in the front and has a waist sash that ties in the front off to one side. View B, the Miss Matilda Top, features all the sweet details of the Miss Matilda Dress, but is cut at shorter length, below the hip, and can be paired with pants, leggings, shorts or jeans. View C, the Miss Matilda Dress simple variation, is a simplified version of the dress and top pattern. The simple variation eliminates the ruffles around the neck and along the front. This variation could be made with or without the waist sash and with piping throughout different seams in the garment.

All design variations have a fully lined bodice with contrasting fabric and French seams in the skirt for total comfort for your little one. This is great pattern for confident beginner sewers and offers many ways to get creative with your design!

And just so you can see how this dress transforms into a top, here are a few pictures from our testers (more to come later this week):

Miss Matilda Top and Skip and Play Capris
This darling outfit was created by Katie Romagosa from Leave You In Stitches. She used several different printed fabrics and lace trim accents. And do you see those capris? Those are the Skip and Play Pants and Capris (Size 6 Month – 10 Years) and they will be released later this week.
This Miss Matilda Top and Skip and Play Pants and Capris is from the talented, Melissa Myers. More pictures of the darling outfit she created coming later this week!
So there you have it……the second (and sneak peek of the third) out of four patterns in The Cottage Mama summer pattern collection. I hope you like them!
