The dress is designed with simple lines and was fun and easy to sew. It is perfect for beginners. The pattern comes in sizes 2-10 and there are great instructions for altering the fit as needed. My sister is tall for her age, so I sewed a size 3 width with size 4 length in the bodice and the fit is perfect! I also lengthened the skirt to make it more of a maxi length. As a result it has a great twirl factor!
I love the simple neckline and dolman sleeves. The sleeves are built right into the bodice pattern making this dress quick and easy to sew together! There are only a few pattern pieces, so it is very simple to tape together and cut out.
I used a cotton jersey from my fabric stash. It is mid-weight and very stable. Liz recommends knit with at least 25% stretch for this pattern. This fabric was perfect - something I've had in my stash for the last few years.
It was simple to hack this into a maxi length. All I did was trace the pattern as is and then added length from the hem.
Miss V loves her new dress and couldn't wait for me to finish it! The pattern instructions were very detailed and after cutting I only spent a couple hours sewing.
The dress has simple, clean lines which I love. The simple lines allow lots of opportunity for making the dress your own. It is a great design for a 3 year old on the move. I know I will be making more of these dresses (and the peplum top version) for my sister this summer. This was my first experience with a Thread Faction pattern and I was very impressed!
