An adorable sleeveless dress, pretty lace bolero jacket and knitted hat create this delightful and very girlie outfit, by Little Miss Muffett. The sleeveless dress has a lined bodice, trimmed with eyelet lace and ribbon, atop a full gathered 4-tier skirt. The skirt has frayed hem edges and lace trim on the bottom layer to give the dress a soft look. The top tier is gathered on the left and adorned with a bow. The dress closes with hook and loop tape in back.
The very easy long-sleeved bolero jacket is constructed with a Center Back seam, two side seams and a facing for a neat finish. The Jacket front is decorated with ribbon roses or buttons and embroidery stitches if desired.
Bonus Pattern: The very easy knitted Rolled Brim Hat has ribbon threaded just above the brim and is decorated to match that of the jacket.

My first use of this pattern was to create a pun for a friend. She's a music fan so I made her a "rock chick" dress for her favorite doll (fabrics with chicks, rocks, flames, and music notes, with the jacket in black "leather"). I love that it has so many layers that you can create little messages like that, without being hugely obvious. It's also nice to not have to pick just one to work with. I pink the edges and they look great. I've used it several times and it always turns out nicely, plus it's easy to do.
Beautiful pattern with well written instructions.
Pattern was easy to use and turned out great. Very easy to follow. Love all my Pixie Faire patterns
This is a very good pattern and I have a wonderful response to my completed dresses.
