Pattern Description: Infants' Lined Dresses, Panties and Headband. I did the dress and the headband

Pattern Sizing: S-XL. I sewed the XL for a baby who currently wears 18 to 24 months clothes

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! Except for the modifications I did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn't like the lack the finishing of the armhole, I hand sewed some of the lace over the trimmed seam allowances to finish it properly. I also had to break the basting in 3 for the front skirt. The tread kept breaking every time I tried to gather the front, this might I been because of the extra layer of lace.

Fabric Used: Cotton broadcloth and lace

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a layer of lace to the fabric since it was a Christening dress. I did a button closure instead of the zipper and I made a fabric flower on the headband.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yup I would sew it again anytime.

Conclusion: This is a cute dress of any little princess you have in your life!

Ha! Before I even read what you wrote, I looked at the picture and thought "what a precious little princess!" I see you think so also. ;)
