She calls this dress her "Sassy Dress". She is the sassiest things around so it's only fitting I suppose. The pattern design is pretty ingenious. No zippers (woohoo!) and just a little elastic in the back. This is not a good pattern for just guessing which size would work though. I wish I would have measured her first because the back is HUGE. I had to safety pin it. It will probably fit her until she is 10! The pattern itself includes a pattern for a purse with the same bow, dress, shirt, shorts, pants, and even a pattern for an 18 in. doll dress!! Oh and a hair bow. A really good value considering all the stuff you can make!
I was nervous about the bow construction but it's a smart design and all you need to know how to do is make a buttonhole.
I added length to the bottom with this piece of skirt my grandma gave me (she always has bits and pieces of stuff like this for me when I visit. I never think I will get around to using them but I almost always do!).
So what do you think of this pattern? If you really like it and want to purchase one you can use my affiliate link below (I will make a small percentage of $ but I only put affiliate ads for things I really like!).
