Nice fitted dress

I bought this dress for Connie Lowe’s Stella doll which has a very different body than the American Girl doll. So I copied the pattern at 83% and made some revisions and it turned out real nice.

School Girl Christmas Dress

I love the fine finishing details on this dress. The dress looks beautiful in green taffeta with plaid taffeta skirt and trim.



Lovely little classic. Enjoyed making it.

Beautiful dress, but overly complicated

I just finished making this dress, and I was able to more easily and quickly make it by ignoring the special french seamed sleeve, the armscye binding, and the invisible zipper. It looks just as nice, but without the hassle, especially with working with such a small outfit. For a larger garment, these would be nice touches, however it seems that with this outfit, it just makes it harder.
