I bought this pattern to teach my granddaughter how to shirr fabric by machine. The instructions could have been better and regular font for the type would have been much preferred.
I loved making this dress. It took me a while to get things right but with help from Jeri, the designer, everything worked so easily. The pattern has a version for the tube style as well as the blouse and hints for a maxi style as well. This pattern is now my favourite!!!
