Check out this new dress I sewed for Isabelle yesterday…
I think it’s almost as cute as she is. Almost.
The great news is it was so easy to make. I used the 'Go To Signature Dress' PDF Pattern (which you may also see advertised on the right side of this blog.)
Sorry to gush, but this pattern is amazing!
Firstly it’s so versatile – it goes from age 12 months through to 12 years! It also has heaps of different variations – with 3 different length options, 7 sleeve styles and 4 different pocket options; as well as many other ideas for customising your own dress.
This pattern is for knit fabric – something a lot of people seem to be needlessly scared about sewing with. But in the pattern Andrea has included comprehensive tips for sewing with knits. Besides, knits are so easy to wear and wash and in my opinion give such a professional finish.
For Isabelle’s dress I choose the ‘dress’ length in size 2, cap sleeves with rib edges on both the neckline and sleeves, no pockets and choose to do an elastic casing on the outside.
I have plans to make heaps more of these dresses – and due to the versatility of the pattern I could make hundreds without any two being the same (if I so desired!)
You should totally buy a copy of this pattern for yourself – especially at the moment while it’s on sale for 20% off the regular price (for a limited time).
