Heather Ross WS flower girl dress Pattern Description
simple dress with lined bodice and a gathered skirt Which view and size did you make?
size 4, bodice enlarged per errata on her site Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
No If not, why?
After making a muslin I saw that it was not the greatest fit for my child so I modified the back into halter back dress by sewing canals into the bodice lining and inserted 4 rows of elastic. Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes If not, why?
- What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love how cute it is, my dd got tons of compliments when she wore the dress, it looks like a really fancy dress.
At the size that would fit on the bodice was too wide, with tighter bodice it was very hard to put on. Fabric used
tutti frutti fabric Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I would use a zipper next time (did a halter style this time because I did not have a matching zipper at hand). I also added pockets. Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
I would recommend this but would cation to make bodice alterations. The result is super cute.
