The pattern was easy to follow, but I used a satin material and lace and it was a bit slippery and I did have to sew through a fair bit of bulk adding the peplum. It turned out pretty well my niece loved it. I sewed some seed beads on the top part. I don't know how to attach a photo. But next time ill do it better for sure.
This pattern is really worth your time. Really beautiful. I used plain satin for dress & glitter bug organza for panniers. Really sweet!
This pattern was soooo easy! I made this beautiful gown in pale pink silk and paired it with the hennin from the Princess Crowns and Toppers pattern that was a freebie Friday. Can't wait for my Granddaughter to see it!
This pattern worked beautifully for a custom order. The requested style was shorter, and without the panniers, so I left them off. The instructions were very clear and it was a quick sew. Will definitely use again.
The pattern was easy to follow and put together. I have already made two of them for Christmas gifts. The girls are going to love them.
