I have made this dress over half a dozen times in both AG and Wellie Wisher sizes. It sews up quickly and looks amazing in most fabrics. Love it!!
Easy and funny to make!
One thing I love about the Pixie Faire patterns is the detailed photo with each instruction. I am a pretty experienced seamstress, but sometimes it really helps to have that clarification of how it's supposed to look! Keep up the great work.
I have only used this pattern to make a Santa's helper dress, but am anxious to make another dress. It was easy to assemble. I love it.
