We proudly present: the Tulip Dress/Top pattern!

As you might have noticed, Katrien and I have been working very hard lately on a secret project. Today I'm finally able to reveal the secret: we are bringing out our first sewing pattern! Although we tried to keep everything secret, Jenya had already guessed it's name :) I proudly present you: the Tulip Dress/Top!

The Tulip Dess/Top is a pdf sewing pattern designed by Kaatjenaaisels and With Love – by Eva. Its most special feature is the bodice that consists out of two tulip petals overlapping each other, under which a gathered skirt appears. The pattern comes in sizes 80 - 140 (1 - 10yo). 


You can choose between a top and a dress version, and between a closure with buttons/kamsnaps and a blind zipper closure.

The dress is designed for lightweight woven fabrics like voile, satin or crepe. Perfect for hot summer days, but with a long sleeve and tights also great winter wear!

Tulip - rits
Tulip - knoopjes

The Tulip Dress/Top pattern wil be launched on Sunday August 7 at 5am (UTC+1) and will be for sale in the Kaatjenaaisels pattern shop. For 7 euros you get a pdf-pattern and detailed instructions with clear pictures. For now, the pattern and the instructions are only available in Dutch, but we are planning on an English version in Fall.

We had a very pleasant photoshoot with five cute little models (and me as a photographer!). Loes, Liv, Hanne, Eloise and Babette, you were great!

Katrien, you are even greater. I'm so glad I could share every little trouble and all of the work with you during these three months. We were a great team and I'm already very proud of what we realised. I hope, dear reader, that you're just as enthusiastic as we are!

Write it down in your agenda: SUNDAY = TULIP LAUNCH ! See you in the shop!

The pattern can be bought for the price of 7 euros (7,76 USD), no matter in what country you live. I'm sure experienced seamstresses will be able to sew the dress by looking at the pictures, but the English version is on it's way! Just a little more patience :) 


  1. Well done guys. The design is lovely. I hope it goes very well!

    1. Thank you Suz! And even if it doesn't, I have learned a lot by doing this whole project!
