Sewing the Sweet Caroline Girl’s Dress Pattern from Little Lizard King



When I heard that Liz (of Little Lizard King Patterns) named her newest design the ‘Sweet Caroline,’ I knew that I had to make it. Was it named after me, lol? Just kidding, I don’t think I’m that narcissistic. [don’t mind the wrinkles on the dress – this was her second time to wear it, she loves it so much.]

Update – this pattern is no longer available. I hope you still get inspired seeing how I sewed Cadie’s dress using a panel fabric! Check out all my tips and free sewing patterns about how to sew clothes.


I used ‘Gnomeville’ by Michael Miller Fabrics. It’s a darling panel print that has the cheerful gnome village scene along one side and adorable red with white polka dots along the other side. 2 yards were plenty for a size 5.


I love everything about it from the pleated and lined bodice to the bell sleeves and gathered skirt. It’s too bad that the pattern is no longer available!
