Here is what you receive:

  • Measurements for sizes 2T to 14 kids.
  • A 40-page instant download pattern with thorough, uncomplicated step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photos and video tutorials that allow you to follow along with ease from start to finish.
  • A  1-Page A0 Copy Shop file (46.8” x 33.1”) and standard printing file (8.5” x 11”) included.
  • Computer drawn pattern pieces you can print over and over again; no more patterns that rip or tear! We now include templates for square and rectangle shaped pieces to cut and print out for those who prefer this option. As always, we will continue to include a cutting chart for those of you that choose to use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut your pieces. These rectangle and square pieces will have their own print saver chart, separate from the necessary shaped pieces chart. Please be sure to see the print saver for which pages to print for both options.


 Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape. You will only receive pattern pieces for curved portions of the garment, and you will follow the cutting chart for the remaining pieces.

two for one

We have gotten so many compliments on the monarch's I've made. It was a lot easier to put together than I thought it would be. The hardest part was deciding each pair of characters.

Two times the fun!

This leotard provides two looks in one. What could be more fun?!? The fit on the briefs provides good coverage for all the dance and tumbling tricks a girl could want. The leotard transforms to a cute mini dress. The combinations are endless.

Perfectly fun!

We love Monarchs! Endless possibilities for transformations! And even as a simple leo with a skirt it would be great! Instructions are clear and fit is spot on!

Awesome pattern!!

This was my first time making a transition dress. I was worried that it was above my skill level, but I was so wrong! This pattern is well written and easy to follow, with stunning results. My daughter has three so far, and is already planning what themes she wants next. Thanks for a great pattern!

Perfect Transition Pattern

This pattern is soooo great! The instructions are smooth and clear, the design is on point, and it’s so simple yet gorgeous. You have so many options with this pattern and can do so many different creative projects. The over dress after transformation is also a great base for any costume. Overall, a perfect pattern!
