Calico Critter V-stitch Sundress


Advertisements

Ever since I first saw Calico Critters, I’ve loved them. I love the little pieces, the cute figures, and the different furniture sets. However, I noticed that they don’t really make extra clothes for the figures.

Today, I’m sharing my Calico Critter V-stitch sundress pattern.  I created the pattern a few months ago for my younger sister’s much loved Calico Critter figures as a birthday present.

This pattern fits the child and toddler figures.
