Cute, Easy Sundress

This pattern was accurate to size, and I appreciate that it can be sized for dolls with smaller waists, too. The directions were well written and easy to follow. I cut my first dress from a cloth with a scalloped cut-out edge, which made it even easier! I will definitely be making a variety of these!

Pretty little sundress

This little dress, with the overlay was not difficult at all to put together. I did have to follow the directions carefully so that the lining and overlay all came out beautifully when it was turned to the right side. The add-on tie really makes this appear as if the overlay ties at the front of the dress. Very cute, and it fits like a glove!. Thank you!

Sophie’s Pleasant Day Sundress

Delightful dress and so easy to sew up. Much easier that I was expecting. So far I have made one using contrasting material for the “crossover” and one the same. Both came out adorable.
