Pattern Description: Raglan sleeve bubble dresses can be made from a woven or firm knit fabric. They have a kangaroo pocket on front, elastic at the pocket openings, neckline, bottom edge, and bottom edges of sleeve. Leggings w/o side seams have elastic casing at the waist.
Pattern Sizing: XXS to L. I use XS based on my g.d.'s measurements from November visit.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think it will look like the photo when it is worn. Hard to get the effect on a hanger.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy directions. Not a lot of steps and only 3 pattern pieces for the dress.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked everything about the pattern---nothing to dislike.
Fabric Used: I used a cotton print from Joanne's to make a muslin to check for fit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: She is at the upper percentage for height on growth charts so I added 1" in length. No other changes.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I do plan to make this again & want to use a knit for the next version. I also plan to make the leggings. I recommend this to anyone looking for a cute pattern for little girls.
My inspiration came from Dixie DIY's blog which I was reading over Christmas. She made these little dresses as gifts & they looked adorable! I did not realize that sewing children's clothes was instant gratification.
Conclusion: A cute & easy pattern that is also stylish!
