Originally launched in 2013, the Tinny was a vintage style dress with multiple skirt, sleeve and collar options. It was named after the Belgian children’s book series Tiny, known for its illustrations of beautiful retro dresses.
Now, the pattern has been relaunched in more sizes, and with many more options. Rather than a retro style pattern, it is now an eclectic pattern which can be used for making dresses in an infinite number of styles.
Tinny closes with a hidden zipper in the back, and comes with 8 collar options, 2 bow options, 3 skirt options, 3 sleeve options, 2 bodice options, and can be made with or without faux pocket flaps. It is intended for woven fabrics (light, medium as well as heavy weight).
The patterns and instructions are in pdf-format, and easy to print and to assemble. The file includes:
