|Fabric:||Corduroy [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: Toddlers dress with ruffled tiers, puffed cap sleeves, bias bound neckline. Back neckline opening closed with button and self fabric bias loop.|
Pattern Sizing:1/2-4. I sewed a 2 with no modifications.
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?Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Ruffles! Puffed sleeves! More ruffles! The pattern itself is great. Notches line up, sleeve lining holds pouf just right, goes together quickly even with all the necessary gathering. The tiers are top stitched onto the skirt, which I think is more comfortable and less bulky than sandwiching the ruffles between stay tiers, like McCall's 6270.
Fabric Used:Corduroy from hobby lobby. I saw it in the new seasonal fabric section, thought the colors & coordinates were really pretty, but had no idea what I'd do with it...then I saw this sample dress and had to make it. I've never, ever been impressed with any of the sample garments at any fabric store, but I just had to make this.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes and yes. This was fun and easy. Would make a great party dress or gift from Auntie or Grandma, or could make in a stable knit like the tiered tunics they sell at Carter's with coordinating leggings.
Conclusion:So, yeah, I totally copied a hobby lobby sample garment. That's why they're there, right? After working with fiddly knits, tracing Ottobre patterns and fitting a new pattern for myself, I just wanted to crank out something fun and pretty. Can't wait to try it on my baby girl.
