Garden Gala

Picture very helpful, instruction very through. No problem making this pattern up. If anyone is looking for a 70's pattern this is surly the one for you. I remember making this when I was in Junior High School, loved the yoke with different color than dress. Matter of fact I made 2 dresses with different colors. The fit was good for my doll and can't wait to see it on my granddaughters doll with shoes to match. No picture available at this time.

Fun and pretty dress

This is such a cute pattern! Heidi has taken all the parts and simplified them for minimal cutting and perfect sewing! It is so versatile with the options to make it short or long and out of simple or fancy fabrics!! Have a blast making one, or several!
