I was recently able to test out this new dress pattern for Rabbit Rabbit Creations.
What I Loved
I have to say, I am extremely happy with this pattern. It is quite simple in design and sews up quickly.
Oh, and did I mention versatility? This dress offers 3 versions. The Everyday, The Dress Up Version and the Something Special. I made two of these, both were the Dress Up Version. All are basically the same design, but the Dress Up and Something Special add a top skirt with more gathering.
While the Everyday Dress version can easily be made with regular quilting cotton, I would highly recommend trying out Cotton Lawn, Voile or a combination of the two for the dressier versions. The drape of these lighter fabrics really bring this dress to life. If you are unfamiliar with Cotton Lawn, do check out my Sewing With Cotton Lawn Tips Tutorial.
This is the 2nd dress I made. For this one I used Cotton Lawn for the bodice, lining and bottom skirt. I used a sheer voile for the top skirt to give it that dressy feel. It makes for a great “twirl” dress!
I really can’t say enough about this pattern! If you like it, you can pick it up in the Rabbit Rabbit Creations Etsy Shop!
