Collar tip

I found the scalloped edge of the collar difficult to stitch and maintain the scalloped edge. After 2 "wadders" I cut 2 squares of fabric the size of the collar and interfaced one. Then I transferred the stitching line to the interfaced piece. With the 2 rectangles RST I was able to stitch along the marked line and then cut close to the stitching line. Having a larger piece of fabric made it easier to maneuver under the presser foot. I also found that the sleeve band was slightly snug, but that may have been my fault. The rest of the dress went together easily and it is darling.

Cute little dress!

Even though I cut the pattern pieces exactly from the templates, the bodice wasn’t wide enough to overlap to close. So I had to add an extension. Other than that, it went together well. I added the knitted French beret from a different PF pattern to complete the outfit.

Wellie wisher dress

I found the pattern to be fairly easy to sew. I wanted to use the collar, but find it hard lay right. I would like to sew it into the dress and I hope to try that .

The pattern was easy to make and had many varieties. I made 2 for her doll. She loves them and says they fit great.
