love the fit on my toddler

Love the pattern! It was recommended on facebook in the ckc group. I missed in the tutorial, pressing more. After each step i presses my pattern pieces. I love the refferal to the youtube films, that made me understand the tutorial better! The final dress was about 12cm to long, so i had to shorten it.

Made me feel like a pro!

I made this dress for my 3 year old, and it came out looking so polished it appeared as though I had been sewing for years (in reality, I'm very new to sewing and completely self taught). This took me longer than other patterns, but was well worth it, we get lots of compliments overtime she wears it and she has a ton of fun dancing in her dress.

My daughters requested this pattern for their easter dresses this year- the got to choose from every pattern on the site. I finally finished the first one last night and I couldn't be happier! Pattern is easy to follow, easy to use, and goes together very easily. Can't wait to make more!

You must have this gem in your pattern collection. All of the variations allow for so much. Classic, modern, fun or casual. I absolutely loved this for my daughter's Buzz Lightyear costume. I did the Peplum top and used velcro instead of buttons on the back for easy on/off dress up play. You will not be disappointed with this pattern!
