Today I’m participating in the Merry Church Mouse Studio Designs tour. Linda and I participated in a blog swap (we gave feedback about each other’s blogs) a while back. I admired the designs in her pattern shop, but didn’t buy any because I don’t usually sew for girls. But you know I logged the gingersnap pattern away for future purchase when I saw the one with the owl applique! I saw Linda’s name pop up in a call for a blog tour, and I just had to sign up! So now I have the super cute Gingersnap Dress/Tunic pattern in my collection!


Pattern Features:

  • Sizes 2-6
  • 3/4 Sleeves
  • Square Neckline with Facings
  • Loose Fit
  • Gingerbread Men applique
  • Designed for a Beginning Sewist


I made the size 3 for my niece, without getting measurements for her first. I really should have made the size 2, but she will get to grow into this one. 🙂 Better too big than too small, eh? I did the tunic length, because I knew it would be a cute, loose, summery top that would pair great with jeans, shorts or leggings.



I picked a striped quilting cotton for the main fabric.  I wanted something with great spring/summer colors.  Even though this dress is called the “gingersnap” and comes with a cute Christmas applique, I wanted to show the dress being made as something not Christmas-y. I added the piping to the front bodice seam, that isn’t included in the pattern instructions, but it’s pretty simple to add. (How to Sew  Piping)
