Toddler dress in two lengths, top, pants and shorts - vaguely peasant style Which view and size did you make?
View B - size 4 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes If not, why?
- Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes If not, why?
Overall yes, there were a couple of places the marks didn't exactly line up -but it was inconsequential. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Overall a quick, easy sew Fabric used
cotton woven - Dora, of course :) Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
They call for single fold bias tape for the armholes. I didn't have any, so used double fold...which is essentially they way they use the single fold anyway. Much easier my way. Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
Cute, simple pattern - actually runs true to the measurements, plus the ties in the back help pull in any extra width. It is just a wee bit short, though - definitely need shorts/bloomers underneath!
