Description

I fell in love with this immediately! Luckily, it was on JoAnn’s $.99 for a pattern sale, and it moved immediately up the ranks to my next project.

M5925

This pattern was really easy to mix and match – I used the sleeves & collar from A and the dress from C, and I already have plans to make more combos.

The cool thing was this pattern was much more true to sizing that I am used to. I know it is just vanity, but as I don’t have a dress form, it was nice to take something in for a change.

Check out my blog for a longer description of the dress-making process, if you wish.

OH, and if you don’t know how to make ruffles, YOU WILL LEARN by the end of making this dress!
