Dress and Coat pattern for girls.
Girls 3-8. I made a size 8 this time.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern is a pretty standard traditional dress. I made it for a character ballet costume. I made it a while ago in a smaller size, and my daughter grew out of it. The dress is quite wide. There's plenty of ease around the bodice. That's not a problem if you need room to dance in.
This time I couldn't get the lining to fit properly. I don't think it was the pattern. I think it was something I did to make it tighter somehow.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None this time.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is the second time I've made this dress. It goes together well.
I think this is a great pattern for this style. It would look great with the coat for a special occasion.
