Maddie's Christmas Gift Dress

Added Dec 12, 2008

by sew4my3

Wauwatosa, Wisco...






This dress is made for my niece, Maddie as a Christmas gift. She loves horses and just took first place in her division for riding. I saw this fabric and just knew it was the one for her. I lined the entire dress in a complimentary tan color so she will not have to wear a slip and it is made so that she can wear it with top during colder months and without in warmer months. I hope she will like it!

Material Notes

100 percent cotton horse fabric.

100 percent cotton tan fabric.

The pattern is a copy of a copy my grandmother has that just has the name “Orla” on it.




Garment Type


My Grandmother for lovingly teaching me to sew so many years ago and for the wonderful patterns she has passed on to me.

    How great to find a fabric that is so personal for your niece! And I really like the bows for the back AND the pockets!
