Did catch your copy of the latest One Thimble ezine? There are so many patterns in there I’m dying to try out. I tested one of the patterns, The Spirited Dress which is Candice Ayala debut into pattern making. And what a debut!
This is the ultimate twirling dress with a full circle skirt. What makes it really stand out is that beautiful Queen Anne neckline.
I graded from a size 5 width to a 7 length. The pattern comes in sizes from 2 to 9 and recommended fabric is a stable knit f. eks. quilted knit, jacquard, double knit, liverpool and french terry. I used double jacquard for this one which I bought from a Norwegian online store called Stoffdronning.
I cheated on the hemming and just did a rolled hem on my serger, fast and easy!
I almost forgot to tell you there is a bonus pattern for underpants as well, so your little one wont be flashing her underwear while twirling and twirling. I should mention that Anita is not wearing those in these photos cause as you can see it was cold outside so it was more fitting for her to wear thick stockings.
To get this beautiful pattern designed like I said by Candice Ayala who also is the mastermind behind Sewing Portfolios you have to buy issue 18 of One Thimble. That means you get 10 patterns for girls, boys and ladys plus a bunch of sewing related articles for $25.00 AUD – steal of a deal!
