This PDF sewing bundle includes the "Edwardian Fancy", "Heirloom Hat" and "Dress it Up" patterns- everything you need to complete a stunning Edwardian inspired ensemble.
"Edwardian Fancy" is a perfect choice for a “fancy” gown that can be dressed up or down. Depending on your fabric and embellishment choices it can be appropriate for an afternoon stroll at Downton Abbey, or an elegant gown for evening festivities on the Titanic.
It has a 3/4 length sleeve, edged with eyelet or lace. The high waist is accented with a two-tier ruffled peplum edged with lace, and a matching waistband encircles the bodice.
The skirt is narrow and fitted, typical for the period. It has an inset front panel, edged with lace and embellished with optional seed pearls. The bodice has an inset lace panel for just the right touch of elegance. This dress can be made of cotton for a simple look for day, or silk for an elegant evening ensemble.
The "Heirloom Hat" is surprisingly easy to make, with complete instructions to transform an ordinary 9" straw hat into this elaborate creation. Video instructions are also included.
The brim of the hat is covered with a fabric that gently tucks around the edge, and the inside of the hat is completely lined. The crown of the hat is edged with a pleated ruffle made from coordinating fabric. Silk flowers, tulle, ribbon, and an ostrich feather complete the elegant look.
The finishing touches come with the pattern "Dress it Up". Included in the pattern are long & short gloves and an elegant fringe-trimmed purse, complete with calling cards to slip inside it when your doll goes on social visits.

I found the directions very clear. Only one thing confused me - the peplum patterns. Why was one edge zigzagged when it clearly had to be cut out as a rectangle? Couldn’t figure that out. The gloves turned out great. I am excited to try the hat and was able to find wide low crown straw hats on Etsy. Will be using strings of crystal seed beads instead of fringe on the purse. Great pattern!
I really enjoyed this pattern as it leaves some room for creativity! Lots of choices for trims etc. it isn’t fully lined so fairly simple to do but a more experienced seamstress could do it . It fits nicely and my Samantha loves her new dresses.
This beautiful pattern was easy to use. The detail was fantastic and completely explained in the pattern. I will enjoy making this dress over and over.
