Maia Dress, a vintage and classic looking dress that fits all seasons. It features a shirred bodice that will fit your little girl perfectly, shirred puffy sleeves and a full skirt with underskirt attached. Definitely a perfect and comfortable occasion dress that will last in the wardrobe ALL year long. Imagine this as a Christmas Dress, how sweet and elegant is that!
Inside, you find clear and simple instructions accompanied by color pictures, a table of measurements and a pattern piece to make this dress for sizes 12M – 8T. All instructions are simple to follow and accompanied by colored photos for better elaboration.
The cut out and sewing was easy to follow. The shirring part with the elastic did not work no matter how I tried to do this. I had to modify the pattern because it was too big. I gathered the neck and sleeves using the old basting method.
Granddaughters love this pattern. Easy and clear directions
This is such a sweet little dress. The instructions were easy to follow. This was my first shirring project and that is where I spent the majority of my time. Definitely try on a test piece before starting on the dress. But once you get the technique for shirring, the dress itself is very simple to make up. I have a picture, but couldn't figure out how to add it to this review. So I posted it at http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/my-first-shirring-project
