I am very happy to be apart of the Jocole Love Bog tour! Today I have sewn up a Circle Flounce Dress with matching doll dress for Sweet pea's baby doll.
From cutting out the dress to sewing it it took my a whole two hours to make both the dress for my daughter and her baby doll's matching dress. The pattern instructions are really well written and the assembly of the dress is so well done. This is a more simple dress with a lovely look to it. Both my daughter and I really love this pattern. She wouldn't take it off even after we did photos then wore it three days row, one day she even wore it to bed! (So if you plan on sewing this dress up be sure to make two, one to wear and one for the wash, lol).
This is a summer style dress but it layers very well and goes great with boots. We plan on using this dress and a season transition piece. With the colors and print of our fabric I am sure it will out very nicely. I really adore patterns that have more than one season to them.
Then I had, had to make Elsa the bitty baby a dress as well. My daughter, Sweet pea, loves to have matching doll and mommy clothes so the doll pattern included in the pattern pieces was a huge added bonus for me!
The smile on her face says it all.
I did make one modification to the dress and that was to add buttons instead of the snaps. My girl is a button girl all the way so it had to have them. I didn't have to change the pattern in any way, i just added a interfacing to wrong side of the bodice and my buttonholes where the snap placement was. Easy Peasy!
Over all this is a really great!
