Just adorable

Love this pattern! Great directions and easy. I made just the skirt portion, but also plan to make the entire dress. I put the skirt with the sweater made from socks as shown in the upcycled socks tutorial. I actually made four of each for my Valentines sweeties. Also thanks to the other reviewers for heads up about bodice lining. Good to know for when I start the dress.

Ruffles r ‘us’

I am pleased with how the dress turned out. I agree with Pam in her review about the skirt, although I made it work. Usually patterns are too small, especially across the shoulders, but I ended up taking 1/2” side seams and tapering to 1/4” at bottom of bodice. If I’d wanted to undo top stitching, etc, could have been 1/2” whole side seam and then skirt would have fit. Good instructions and not difficult to sew. Love the ruffles

love the pattern

This pattern was fun to make and easy to follow, but the skirt lining is about a half inch to short to match up with the bodice when assembling. I talked to other ladies who have make this and they ran into the same problem. Fixed it by just making the lining after the bodice was constructed, but just a heads up for others who want to make it without the frustration of finding it not matching up. However, I would recommend this to others for a cute and playful pattern to make for your 18 inch dolls!

faraway downs dress

Just finished first two dresses plus a "faraway galaxy" mutation- shortened pattern top with a gathered Star Wars print skirt. Really cute, very easy. Also working on a skirt with pre-gathered ruffles but haven't finished it so I can't review. I would buy from this designer again- easy to follow directions, pattern easy to modify into other outfits and it looks like something I'd wear myself.
