|Pattern Description: Childs Halter Sundress |
Front View Wearing Dress
Pattern Sizing:Size 3-8, I made View C in a size 5
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?Incredibly easy, yayyy!!!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Cute, fast and comfy for my sweet little neice! I was able to use a cool tie-dye rickrack that coordinated perfectly with the fabric.....the rickrack was actually what drove the project, I saw the rickrack, then found the fabric and pattern to work with it: RickRack Detail
Fabric Used:Cotton interlock from JoAnn's, I call it the "Peace, Love and Happiness" print.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:No changes. I was sewing this without the benefit of my little model nearby; if I make it again I will take a 1" tuck out of the neckline at the center front. The dress fit her in the hips and waist, but was just a little bit gappy in the center front neck area. I think I also may have accidentally stretched the neck a bit when sewing, it is a bit ripply even when the dress is off.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Highly recommend, it's a super easy and comfy dress for hot summer weather. Not sure if I will sew it again, that all depends on what she likes next summer.........I'm a mom of boys, and I'm finding when I sew for my neices it's best to check right before starting a project to see what it is they are currently loving, their tastes can spin on a dime. Love those little girls!!!!
Conclusion: This pattern is a winner - 1 1/4 yards fabric and one package of funky rick-rack made for an easy, fun project.
