After the success of the Marshmallow Dress sewing pattern for women, we launch the lovely Mini Marshmallow from ages 3 to 12. The garment aimed for kids keeps its sweet trapeze shape, with a loose, comfy fit and a fun ruffle, Peter Pan collar and optional cute bow. There are also three sleeve options: 3/4 sleeves, short sleeves and sleeveless, so depending on the fabric you choose, it can be worn all year around. What about matching outfits?
