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. :)
I was delighted to test this pattern for Eden Ava Couture and was so happy with the result! The directions are easy to follow, the fit is perfect and the outcome is so sweet for the Wellie Wisher. I will definitely be making more!
