I have to show you the dresses in the matching set that so many of you commented on. This is the little owl dress I made for Maggie, my baby.
FIRST PUBLISHED FEBRUARY, 2010
Pattern: Simplicity 3511
I love the use of corduroy for this pattern. It is hard to find cute dress patterns that have sleeves. I think this one works very well for the colder months and the warmer ones as well.
Overall I would recommend this pattern. It was pretty easy to cut out and put together. No big issues.
Things I'd change:
- The neck opening is very wide for the size. This should have fit little Maggie according to her measurements but it just doesn't. She'll grow into it though.
- The method of putting elastic into the sleeves is overly time consuming. Next time I'll use my own method. The one I used on the cutest little shirt. On a related note, I'm still considering selling this shirt pattern. It won't happen any time too soon though so you'll have to hang in there!
But really, it is super cute.
The back detail makes it.
Do you think I could pull this off in my size? Which reminds me, thank you still for all the great comments on my dress!
