Pretty much any pattern you would use regular woven fabric for. The pattern I used showcasing this itty bitty baby dress is my own, the Whimsy Couture Bow Twirl dress pattern. I super easy sew that only requires to know how to sew with elastic thread. The dress I made features a ruffle on the bottom which is not part of the pattern but it’s easy to do. Just cut the skirt length a bit shorter to accommodate the ruffle. Cut the ruffle twice as wide as the skirt part so I would have nice gathers. I cut mine to 2.5″ long which was plenty for a baby dress.
