I made eight of these dresses in different colors for a birthday party. They were a HUGE hit. I used silver toned "metalic" trim for the belt and snipped accents from the trim for the shoes and hair accessories. The "pattern" for the necklace is a huge bonus - well worth it to make these to complete the set. I do think the dress is quite short - I made bloomers from the Gotches pattern and trimmed them with ruffled foldover elastic - made the whole outfit even more fancy.
No idea how I missed this jewel when it came out! I saw it yesterday, bought it and made t! I did the precious little paper goods, necklace, wrist flower and dress, my doll looked beautiful. Thank you for such a fantastic design. I would like to see more COMPLETE outfits.
I absolutely adore this pattern; it's such a perfect pattern to stitch for a special occasion dress. This pattern is very well written and designed. I love this designer. I can't wait to see what she designs next.
This pattern is beautifully written and sews up in a simple, straightforward manner. The attention to detail and professional presentation put it at the top of my go-to pattern list. I've created the entire ensemble for my daughter, and she has enjoyed the "completeness" of the set as part of her creative play. Perfect fit and lovely details. Well done!
