Prem./Small Newborn – Age 12

Categories: ,


The Beachcomber is a relaxed fit dolman style top. It can be made as a longer length t-shirt, a tunic or a dress. There are options for short/long sleeves, colour blocking and two neckband styles. Deep pockets can be added to the tunic and dress.

This pattern goes from prem./small newborn up to Age 12 and there is a matching adult pattern available.

This pattern is designed for light – medium weight knit fabrics with good drape. Bamboo jersey, DBP, viscose and lighter weight cotton/lycra jersey are all good choices.

It is suitable for enthusiastic beginners. An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish, but all options can be made using a regular sewing machine.

This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.

The print-at-home pattern can be printed on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

    I’ve just made my first Beachcomber dress for my nearly 2 year old. Using the age 2 sizing. Its a very easy pattern to follow and cut out. Took me about 2 hours to make including cutting and construction. I used the projector pattern as I have one and its so much easier to use than paper patterns.. I did all my sewing using an overlocker and all the hems on a coverstitch. But this can easily be done on a normal sewing machine and twin needle. Very pleased with the result. I have the adult version to make one for myself sometime soon. Definetly going to try the colour block option next with long sleeves for the toddler.
