Made this dress for my daughter's school talent show. She was going to be dancing with a little boy and spinning around. She loved the dress so much, she slept in it one night. She now wants one in pinks and one in purples.
It's so horrible that I am posting this now but is is my 8th dress! I love sewing this dress, it's so simple and you get beautiful results. We've done long ones, short ones, with sashes, without, there are so many possibilities. I recommend this pattern to any beginner and you will have great results!
I made the Angie dress in a woven eyelet fabric, a little thicker than regular cotton. based on my store sisze, I cut a size L bodice, but after trying it on, determined that the XL size would be best as I am "rawtha busty" . it is fitting, but easily pulled over my head. I love that I have control over the skirt length. I wore this with a leather belt. super easy to make (even with 3 kids asking umpteen questions!)
My daughter wanted a "princess dress" that went all the way to the ground and covered her feet. This pattern gives easy instructions to customize the fit of the dress for little ones, and we added an extra ruffle at the bottom! My daughter loves it!
