I am writing about another pattern I am working on, My Baby Girl Romper by 18 on Main. I am to the part where I sew the romper and the dress together. I am having a hard time understanding putting the wrong side of the romper to the right side of the dress. When doing so, when I turn it one wrong side is showing. To get the bloomers to show on the right side is impossible if I want the right side of the dress and romper to show. I would appreciate any help that can be given me. I have looked at all the pictures, read all the directions but nothing is clicking with me. I am taking way too much time on this one pattern. Thank you
the dress is adorable , easy to make & doesn't take long to do .fits H4H dolls too
Very cute dress. Clear directions and nice fit.
My blonde Wellie (Camille but I call her Kami) was my model for this dress and it just looks perfect on her. It wasn't very hard (the rating is intermediate and I feel that's a great rating) but with the Wellies, little places can get tricky like the bias tape. But I took my time and I was very pleased with the results and perfect fit. I was happy to be a tester for this pattern.
I was very happy to see this unique pattern, and very pleased with the results from it. I found the fit on my WellieWishers model to be perfect. Instructions were clear, and it worked up beautifully. Lots of options are possible with just a few subtle changes to the basic pattern, so I consider this one an immediate pattern folio staple. :)
