I love patterns that allow me to use a variety of prints, especially those remnants from past projects that are too big to throw away but not quite large enough for a complete garment. A few basic changes in the construction of the garment will achieve a variety of looks. In this pattern, I've included 2 options for the neckline finishing plus 2 hood variations, solid panel or pieced dress front and back, and sleeve variations as well as options for the bottom flounce to allow for many variations of the finished dresses.
I’ve been sewing for 30+ years and have enjoyed trying many new techniques along the way. I wrote this eBook for most levels of sewers, from confident beginner to advanced.
The e-book includes:
* 2 options for the neckline finishing plus 2 hood variations, solid panel or pieced dress front and back, sleeve variations and options for the bottom flounce
* 25+ pages of instructions to make dresses in sizes 2 to 16
* 60+ color photos and illustrations
* Printable pattern pages
*Note: These are downloadable instructions and pattern for making an item. Since it is a download, a window will open to download and when you are signed into your user account at the time of purchase, it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.
* Knit jersey, interlock or similar stretch fabric: yardage varies depending on the dress size, style options and the number of prints used.
Equipment you'll need:
Sewing machine, scissors, ruler or measuring tape, iron and ironing board, straight pins
Ball point needle for the sewing machine

Love this pattern, sure it took like 45 minutes to tape together the pattern - but once it was together the dress whipped up in less than 1/2 hour, the next few will be super fast! Great fit and a lot of options.

Have been waiting for someone to list this pattern for sale for a while. Was so glad when it became available. Haven't made it yet but the directions are precise and clear so there shouldn't be any problems. Thanks for the great pattern.

Wow!! I made one dress so far and it turned out darling!! It does take quite a bit of time to piece the pattern and cut out but it's so worth it!! Plus, I had a question and the seller contacted me right away. Loved that too. I highly recommend this pattern, worth every cent and love that there are so many options. Thanks for creating an awesome pattern that we can all use!!
