I am in the process of making this now got the top sewn and now searching for fabric for the bloomers. It is very easy to do and lots of fun. Not a fan of satins but with this pattern the satin looks great and princess seams easy to do. I always worry about runs or puckers but this is a sweet little pattern.Sample coming out great can't wait to bring out my Irish in the main outfit and go on to make the Highland Bundles.
I used this pattern to make 2 dresses for a legacy doll. They turned out perfectly. The information about different doll sizes and all of the details and pictures were 100% accurate. Plus it was easy to modify the skirt for two different styles, so that I could make dresses that match my daughter's dresses. I'm just sad that Santa will get all of the credit for the work that went into them!
I really like this pattern. Good directions and easy to follow. I made a few changes by making it unlined, used ppiping at the neck and made a ruffled cape. The the lines and structure of the actual dress are well designed and true to the style of current Irish dance dresses.
This pattern made the cutest little solo dress!! It was so easy to follow and the end result looks so professional! I am not a seamstress my any means but my mom is by profession and even she was impressed by my work!! All thanks to great directions and pictures in this pattern! I can't wait for my daughter and two nieces to get them for Christmas. If only the real dresses were this easy!!
Recently I bought a pattern for an American Girl doll: Eden Ava Couture's Irish Solo Dance Dress. It was excellent--fully explained and illustrated--45 pages worth!
