Juliette's Dress PDF Sewing Pattern {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 


As a mother to a girl, I have been very concerned with many of the outfits that are sold in stores for girls, especially since my daughter is currently in 5T. As a result, I have decided that I want to try to get better at sewing, so that I don't have to rely on buying clothes at many department stores.

Juliette’s Dress, designed by Lily Bird Studio
is a vintage inspired dress. It is built-in panels with a rounded neck line and an opening at the back which makes it perfect for hot summer days. It has a fully lined bodice. It closes at the back with 2 small buttons or snap buttons. This sewing pattern provides the instructions to make a petticoat which makes this design look much better.
This pattern provides two options for sewing the dress; I chose option A, which has a full front panel, 2 front-side panels, 2 back panels, and 2 back-side panels. The dress is lined at the top, until it reaches the waist.

When I received this pattern, I liked that I was able to print everything out immediately, though I did have problem printing the pattern itself. I think my trouble happened because I was using a laser printer. I liked that the pattern has a wonderful tutorial to go with it; there are photographs of every single step. This helped me tremendously since I'm more of a visual learner.

The biggest drawback for me with this pattern is that the letters did not print in alphabetical order, and there were two "H's", so after that the letters were messed up. I ended up laying the pieces in a grid on the bed and cutting them out based that way.





I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
