Ana a talented seamstress and the face behind Cocowawa Crafts has launched a range of fun sewing patterns. Her first ever pattern was the Marshmallow dress and the paper version is now available to buy.
The lovely Marshmallow is a sweet trapeze dress, with a loose, comfy fit and a fun ruffle, Peter Pan collar and optional cute bow. It comes with three different sleeve options: 3/4 sleeves and cuffs, short sleeves or sleeveless.
The Marshmallow dress can be dressed up or down, from a party to a wedding, from a walk around town to the office with a belt for a close fitted look.
