I made this in my traditional red, white and blue theme. But imagine this in heirloom batiste fabrics! I thought it was going to be harder to make it and to align the bands, but everything lined up well and it was a pleasure to sew. I added the red rick rack on the cuffs and hem.
I was one of the testers for this pattern, and none of the dresses came out the same. If you like different looks and lots of options this is a great pattern to have. I chose to do the sleeveless version, and I like how it looks that way. The instructions and pictures used in the pattern are great and walk you through creating your own look. This is a really fun pattern, and it is also available for the 14.5 inch size dolls.
This is a great little pattern with many options. Between the different options for the triangular overlay placement, the sleeve styles and the hem style - either straight or funky triangular scallops and the way the dress looks in many different fabrics the style options are endless, The directions are very clear so there are no difficulties in achieving all the various looks
Love all the different ways this dress can be made. I was part of the testing group for this dress, and it was fun to see all the different looks from one pattern. While the shaped details appear a little complicated, they really weren’t at all. Instructions are well written and dress fits perfectly … this is one I’ll want to make again!
