Some of my favorite memories from my childhood are special occasions. Any excuse to get all dolled up and put on a fancy dress was my main goal! Mood’s Cypress Dress free sewing pattern has already become a favorite for my daughter; she was so excited when we both wore our dresses for our mommy and me picnic! Our Redux version of the Cypress was re-imagined in a chic satin and adorned with rhinestone buttons, perfect for the milestone events that we hold dear to our hearts. So whether your little one is a flower girl, or celebrating her first communion, she’ll feel like the prettiest girl in the room. Try using taffeta or Duchesse satin as another great option!
Purchase Materials Used Below:
- 2 yards of Vanilla Cream Solid Polyseter Satin

- 1 spool of 1040 Ivory 100m Gutermann Cotton Thread
- MDF151 – The Cypress Dress Sewing Pattern (free download below!)

Fabric selection and details such as trim play a huge part in chaning the look of a garment. For this version of the Cypress dress, I chose Italian rhinestone buttons to compliment Mood Fabrics beautiful crisp satin.
Another quick adjustment is as simple as tying the bow in the back. It gives the dress a less casual feel and it’s an easy way to add a back detail.
Do you have a special little girl that needs a special dress? Well I hope you give the Cypress dress a try! I’m sure she’ll love it just as much as my little princess!
