Updated for 2023!
Due to popular request, we've updated this pattern to include roomier fit, long and short sleeve options, and more sizes! This pattern now goes up to size 14 kids. We've also added a real-world tested, paper-saving projector version! (More details in the Pattern File Formats Section.)
This dress is PERFECT for playing in and super fun to make. This dress was named after my sweet, active niece who loves to jump in the mud and climb trees. With easy two-way stretch and a comforting fit, every young lady who has tried this dress on has not wanted to take it off! It washes and wears perfectly. I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did!

You get instant download PDF files and a printable PDF instruction booklet. The PDF pattern files can be printed or projected in a multitude of ways:
1. Home Printing (Letter Sized)This file can be printed on letter sized paper and includes all of the sizes on one print like a paper pattern you would buy at the store.

2. Copy Shop Printing (A0 - Layered PDF)
This file can be sent to your local copy shop and printed as a blueprint in either color or black and white.
This is a layered PDF file so you can print one size at a time or all at once.
