DIY Flirty Floral + Pattern Review NL 6121


Hi Darlings!!

I have a thing about wearing clothes I make more then once or twice before I give them away to the girls at the church, mostly it's because once I am photographed in it I usually don't share it again, but today while standing in my ridiculously over crowded closet, uttering the words "I don't have anything to wear!", I started to look in the back of the closet for any "hidden" dresses I may have pushed back there. I came across this little number that I made last June and wore and photographed myself in it but did not review the pattern so I put it on and remembered why I did not give this one away....it's uber cute! lol. Here is the review I failed to give you last year ;-) and btw, the pattern is only $4 HERE

Pattern Description: Misses Dress HERE

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 4


Fabric Used: Print Mesh (I lined the dress) using a tricot. HERE is a similar FABRIC that will look great.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were clear and easy to follow. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I remember liking how cute it looked and how comfy it must be to wear; It does however have a considerable amount of gathering for the three tiers but once you past that it is a breeze. Once I was done and put it on it made my waist look wide so I belted it and then it just becomes even cuter. Not belted didn't work for me.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? No, I have so many other patterns but I do really love this one.


Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I think it's cute and a great summer dress.
