|Pattern Description: |
7-14. I made Version "C" in a size 7 for my 7-year old daughter.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I believe so. I didn't add the trim around the neckline or arms because it seemed to overwhelm the dress. It may work on a larger-sized dress, but on a smaller-sized dress, it was too much.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The directions were very straightforward and easy to understand.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Likes: I thought the pattern provided very clear directions, especially for beginners. I also liked the fact that the pattern included separate pieces for each size, which allows me to use the pattern in the future as my daughter grows.
Dislikes: My only dislike, and it is a minor dislike, is that the pattern called for quite a bit of hand stitching. It took me a little longer to get a finished product.
Cotton from Jo-Ann's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As mentioned above, I didn't include the trim around the neckline and arms because it was too overwhelming on such a small-sized dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would definitely sew it again in the future and would recommend it to others. The style of this dress works as well for young girls as it does for tweens and teens.
It was a fun sewing project, and hopefully, my daughter will enjoy it over the next few months.....before winter sets in!!
