We are currently making our 4th version of this dress! My daughter has completely worn hers out because she loves it so much. The only part that was difficult for me was the optional neck binding. I found it best to use fold over elastic, cut just slightly shorter than the neckline.
"Your the best mom!" Is what my daughter squealed when I made a Maleficent costume out of Elise! It calls for shirring but I used the CKC tutorial for faux shirring and all was good.
This was the perfect dress for Halloween! It fit my daughter great! Love this pattern!
This was my first CKC pattern. I struggled with identifying how much fabric I actually needed & ended up with too much of the knit because I misread the directions. Instructions were straightforward. First time shifting & it came out great! Only struggle was sewing the knit bias on the knit top. Mine ended up stretching out.
Thus pattern is great, my daughter loved being a princess for her birthday! If you are looking for a princess dress this pattern is worth every penny!
I've sewn several of these amazing dresses for my daughter and friends' little girls. Love all love it and it's definitely a hit! Thanks for making so many little girls happy with such an awesome pattern/dress.
I was so impressed with how gorgeous this dress is when completed. It has held up so well also. I made it for my daughter for Halloween, and now 5 months later she is still wearing it regularly for dress up. Pattern was easy to follow!
I've made so many of these. They go together quickly and can be made for just about any princess! You won't regret buying this.
I was really reluctant to do this one because of the sheer part of the bodice and the shirring on the back. I struggled a little with shirring but only because my machine didn't like the elastic thread. Every princess needs this one!
Simple pattern to follow, fit was perfect! So many different options to do with this. Made 3 of these beauties for Christmas and the little girls LOVE THEM!!! great pattern to have in your files!!!
Modified the top to fit a crochet top. Great details and great instructions. Pictures along with the instructions helped a lot.
Yes, I have made 2 of these. the sizing is true to size..I used there measurements and they fit..perfectly..I used Michael Miller fairy frost and they are great everyday dresses..
I love all of the tips this pattern provides on materials to purchase, sewing on satin, and sewing on knit. It helps a scared newer seamstress like myself get the nerve up to make the pattern. I have made three now and my girls could not be happier! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cape and how it detaches!
This is my daughter's favorite dress! I love that you can make all the different princesses using this as a base!
