Knot your dress

Easy to follow instructions but most of all the dress fit so well! I made one from cotton and one satin and velvet; both were beautiful!

Knot Your Dress

Love the easy to construct dress. Clear instructions. Have 2 more cut out in different fabric combo's. And of course the outfit has to have coordinating shoes. Every girl needs at least 2 shoe options for each outfit.

Super cute and fun

This dress was easier than it looks. It turned out great!



A brilliant design! Great that the bow can stay tied, makes it easy for young kids to dress their own doll.
