Homecoming Queen

Cute pattern. I was asked to make a dress that matched a teen's dress and this fit the bill perfectly. I'm always happy with this designer's patterns.

Homecoming Queen

One of my favourites I have tested so far. Quick and easy, simple but very elegant. A must for any closset!

Beautiful Ball Gown

I made the 8 gore version of this dress, and while I can't say I enjoyed attaching the ruching by hand I can say that the end result was worth it. My only quibble with the pattern is the generous size of the bodice pieces designed to fit a variety of dolls. I would prefer the pattern piece to be marked with multiple size cutting lines. Each cutting line could be identified by a waist measurement. The pageant sash is a really fun addition to this pattern.
