In all of the craziness of the Black Friday sale, I don’t think I had a proper chance to introduce you to Enchanting. I absolutely adore this dress. There are no zippers, no buttons. It simply goes on and off over the head, so a girl can put it on herself without help. The knee length is classic and the optional bow is sewn in place, so it never needs tying. As you’ll see from the coming photos, it seems to be a boot kind of dress. I’m not sure why but most everyone photographed it that way!
The pattern has each size separated, so you only print the pages needed for the size you’re making. This pattern has sizes from 2T to 10.
The Enchanting dress is fitted to the shoulders and upper back, then falls comfortably and loosely from there. Making it to the chest size ensures it will not slip from the shoulders.
Included in the pattern are cutting instructions and diagrams, a metric conversion chart, glossary, bow instructions, tips and tricks, and printing instructions.
And now, from the pattern testers:
Size 2T by Vanessa Rowell. What a darling!
I also made a sample 2T, and this little baby is adorable. Also in the 2T testers was Alison Shaw.
Buffey Hauptmann made a size 3 AND an 8 (see further down). What a sweetheart! And look at those turquoise shoes.
Here’s another sample I made in a 4. Love the pink!
Ivey Crenshaw made a size 6. Isn’t this little girl adorable? And I have to say the cotton makes me think of my Grannie who grew up picking cotton in the south.
OK as promised, Buffey also made a size 8! What a cute little girl.
Jenny Fish made the size 10. Just love the Sis Boom fabric on this!
