|As my daughter's 2nd birthday was approaching I started looking for inspiration to make something for her. This dress on Pinterest caught my eye. Easy, elegant and perfect for her 2nd birthday. I even found a perfect pattern for this. Burda 9494. So I got to work. And guess what? I even made a muslin. Even after I went down a size (I picked 18th month old size), it was huge on her. I was too tired to make alterations and besides this New Look pattern had good reviews. I was also drawn to Connie's version with the big dramatic bow!|
No muslin this time (no time for that). After spending about 7+ hours on it, I finished it just in time for her birthday. So why the sad face? Because I was sewing at night and had no time to fit her, the dress is like a tent on her Why won't she eat anything!!!
Okay, back to the pattern.
It's super cute but it's a pain to sew. The curved yoke looks nice but takes a long time to sew. Plus there is as much hand sewing in this pattern as machine sewing. Not my kind of sewing.
I am sorry I am not too enthusiastic about this project. I was just hoping I could be proud of her birthday dress. Oh well... I'll survive.
After every project I make for her, I keep going back to Oliver and S. They are the best in my opinion and even though they are not quick and easy either, the end results are very professional looking. Their signature faced hem is one of my favorite features.
Will I sew this again? Probably not, she'll end up wearing this for her 3rd birthday I guess
Update June 12th, 2013: So 5 months later I decided to put the dress on her again. It's still big but I think she will wear it a few times. I am really not fond of this dress. It just looks weird. But since she was wearing it today, I took some photos and thought I should complete this review. I originally wrote in January.
