“I absolutely love this dress! I've made three and given one away just because I wanted to make one! Absolutely adorable!”
Inspired by the "Princess for a Day" Top comes "The Breeann Dress". I love to make patterns with options. This dress gives you two different looks. It is two patterns in one. First is a snug front dress with a shirred back and a long back sash and the second is a more twirly dress with an elastic back and a long back sash. So if you don't like to shirr choose the second option and use elastic. Each dress can go as plain as you like to as fancy as you would like. There are plenty of pictures and even the beginner sewer should understand.

I absolutely love this dress! I've made three and given one away just because I wanted to make one! Absolutely adorable!
Easy instructions, looks beautiful with appliques
I love making this dress! The instructions are easy to follow and the pattern is awesome!
This pattern was well illustrated, and written. I had never shirred anything before, but these instructions were very clear! Turned out a gorgously sweet dress for my granddaughter's Minnie Mouse themed birthday party. Lots of compliments on this dress, and I will be making another one for her sister as they are going to Disney World in December.
I keep saying beautiful! But I really mean 've been so happy with all the patterns. Love "You Can Make This"! Thank
Love this pattern! So easy to understand, and it made a gorgeous birthday dress!
adorable where can I find the appliques?
by far one if my favorite pattens!
Very easy to make and adorable when done. My little Angel loved hers and she looks beautiful in it. Thanks
Love this pattern for my twin girls. I made their birthday dresses using the pattern and we got so many compliments on their dresses. Thank you for the clear concise directions, I am so pleased!
This is a great little pattern for girly girls. I used this to make a dress for my daughter's birthday party and everyone was wowed at how unique it was. It looks much more difficult than it was to make. I'll be using this again!
Love this dress pattern.
i got this pattern at 5 pm, while dealing with a fussy baby all night i finished this by 8 pm, should have taken just over an hour on a normal day :) i have made several now and they are fun :)
