The pattern comes with two dress styles an a-line and a swing dress (the version I made). Both have a shirt variation and a front placket option for the swing dress or top. The little cap sleeve is optional as well. The sizes are 2 - 10. All that makes it a steal in my opinion.
I love the lines of this dress but then I'm a sucker for a circle skirt. I was a bit surprised how high the neckline is when Hannah first tried it on. I realized why I didn't expect it, most of the pictures of this dress on the PDF pattern show the dress and tops from the back. It's not that I don't like it I just didn't expect it. Stupid of me of course since the dress pattern uses the same pattern piece for the front as the back.
The flower I added was really simple. I took a strip of fabric 4"x20" folded it in half wrong sides facing (do not iron) and ran one gathering stitch 1/2" from the raw edge. Tied off the tread on one end of the strip and pulled the bobbin thread on the other end to gather the fabric. I gathered until I could gathered no more. It will automatically want to coil for you. Just follow its lead and tuck and fluff until your happy. I just whip stitched the flower together on the wrong side to hold it in place. Then I mounted it to a brooch pin (like found here) so I could remove it from the dress when washing.
All in all I really like this dress and think this pattern is going to get a ton of use. I can't wait to make the swing top for this summer and I have some plans for that a-line dress too. Hannah loves the dress too and that's what really matters the most.
I hope you all have a very happy and blessed Easter!
