Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

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.

Thank you Classie Cassie. It was so much fun to make. I am just glad that the weather in DC was still perfect for her to wear it.

I think your ideal of a group would be fun, we could swap patterns, i have filing cabinets full of them that i could part with for exchange of others. I have patterns that date way back, and newer craft patterns also.

Lola yes this would be a perfect addition for your dolls. I puchased this pattern from JoAnn during their 5 for $5. It would take to much time to scan and upload a pattern for you. Let alone the copyright law that may or may not become an issue.

Cocofinch, I did not use a pettiskirt. I used my mannequin to show the fullness and detail of the skirt. You do have the option to add netting to the underlining if you so choose.
Cyndy great minds think alike. LOL Thanks again everyone. I so love SWN members.

Love it! I used that same fabric to make a dress for my grandaughter. Lined and trimmed with pink, of course.

Very nice work. The fabric is so cute.

Simplicity patterns are not as simple as they seem. I have also had trouble with sizing the patterns, they need to be fitted more than Vogue or McCAlls.
Very cute dress.

Gorgeous dress!!!! I love the fabric choices. I wanted to ask you if you used a pettiskirt under the dress to make it look so full?
