Flour sack dress

I was disappointed as with all the reviews stating it does not fit right you would think it would either be removed from Pixie Faire or repaired. Unfortunately this has not been done. It is a really cute pattern with good instructions but does not fit well unless make adjustments.

Flour Sack Frock

This dress was a lot of fun to make. The pattern pieces fit together perfectly. The directions are well demonstrated and easy to follow. I’m looking forward to finding appropriate reproduction prints for a second go round. A few paragraphs of the history behind flour sack dress is included and extremely interesting...love fashion...especially how it pertains to woman’s history.

Perfect for older dolls

I had a lot of fun sewing this dress. It was much easier than I thought when first seeing the cover page of the pattern. I love the result. As stated in previous reviews the neckline is a bit too deep for my most recent dolls but the dress fits perfectly on my oldest Pleasant Company doll.

Easy-to-Sew Dress

The pattern came together fairly easily, although I found the end result had slightly bulky seams along the waistline. If I sewed the pattern again, I would not serge the edge of the bodice and the top edge of the skirt before joining the two together; instead I would serge them after sewing the waist seam, to minimize bulk. I used a fat quarter for the outer fabric and some scrap cotton for the lining. The bodice, without adjustments, and with the darts, is slightly loose on my Journey Girls doll, but not so much to be a problem. I haven't dug my AG doll out of storage yet to check it on her for comparison (the three-year-old gets to play with the Journey Girl if she wants; she has to wait until she's older for the AG doll).
