Jess has put together yet another beautiful pattern. Beautifully detailed to get a very polished finish on your dress or top.
Bailey told me she wanted a top, but I knew better ;). I wanted to make it into a dress and she really loves it. She was very happy to frolic through the beautiful leaves for me, with no prompting whatsoever.
I actually intended on making the elbow length sleeves and even had them sewn on—not finished, but I could visualize how they would look and I ended up liking the sleeveless version better. It’s almost like a faux sleeve though. I love it!
I used black corduroy for the top and made the bias tape out of it as well. Jess has you do a fun trick with the bias tape so you don’t have to tuck it under and try and sew over a bulky portion—it fits perfectly the way she has you sew the bias tape on.
Bailey got this dress on and danced, jumped and did even more frolicking in the leaves. Then she said, “Momma, it is so beautiful up here! We really need to bring the boys!”
Thank you Jess, for such a fun pattern. I know I sound like broken record, but I LOVE how this dress turned out. I even called my husband to tell him how adorable Bailey looked in it. So cute.
