I got to test another pattern for Mandy K Design. Remember this dress, the one my mom said was her favourite of every one I’ve made? I think this one will be her new fave.
The Princess Party dress. It’s just so sweet! And not just because it’s made with strawberry fabric 😉
Amanda from Mandy K Design, was inspired by the princess dresses in the movie Frozen when she came up with this pattern. But as you can see it looks nice even in regular cotton.
The pattern comes with the option of making a cape that is either permanently attached or removable. There are also three different sleeve lengths as well.
What I like the most about this dress is the bodice. It takes your standard peasant dress and adds a bit of oomph.
There are elastic casings in the back to allow for ease of dressing and growing room. Which is great because I loved that strawberry fabric so much I nearly cried cutting it to make this dress. She’ll be wearing this dress a lot until she grows out of it.
And then maybe I’ll frame it just so I can look at those pretty strawberries all the time.
The pattern is geared for beginners. The steps are clear and have lots of detail so I think a true beginner could easily follow this pattern. The trickiest part is doing the casing on the sleeves. BUT even that’s not too hard. I will definitely make this one again.
There were lots of great tester versions of this dress. A few in cotton and some in the more fancy princess style out of satin. All very lovely.
Here is another tester’s dress!
