The Cables and Lace dress pattern, by Genniewren Designs, includes a dress, and a shorter version...
Was delighted to find this pattern. I collect antique Welsh dolls, costumes and hats and wanted to dress my AG to match them for St David’s Day. Easy to download, sew and finish. I was a bit apprehensive of making the hat but my first attempt came out pretty ok. The pattern, images and instructions were clear and easy to follow. I didn’t follow the pattern exactly (the author suggested that it was good to make as I wanted). I adapted my traditional fabrics and colour schemes and am pleased with the results.
My next project
Looks wonderful, going to print it out today, many thanks.
Very very well written pattern. Attention to detail brilliant and they have thoroughly done their homework on our Welsh costume. I live in Wales and had half made my outfit when I came across the pattern. I would never have achieved the hat without this pattern. It was easy to make and I will most certainly be buying these patterns again. Thank you for a great product.
Another outfit to add to my International collection. As with all of Genniewren's pattern, great attention to detail. Great fit, and great instructions. A new way to make a formed hat -- An easy sewing way! The pattern can be used for lots of other eras, but the coif bonnet and hat make this pattern stand out. When I sewed the lace on the blouse front, I used my #16 winged needle and a hemstitch, with very fine thread. It added a really dramatic effect. As with all of her patterns, these are worthy of keepsake collections.
