This dress I made for my grand daughter. The pattern I used was a Project Runway Simplicity pattern #2989. The print fabric Asian Garden Posies is from JoAnn Fabrics.
I modified the pattern by not adding the sleeves. The dress is lined so there was no need to create a finish for the neckline or sleeves. The pattern was easy to follow, but I am not sure it is a pattern for beginners.
I have just finished with another pattern for a client at the shop I work at and it is also a PR pattern. I will share with you all that project soon. I would love to hear feedback from others who have sewn using PR patterns. They do give you design ideas to create a special look for you if you choose. This is a nice element to add to patterns. So as I said before the jury is still out as for me recommending for beginners.
