It's such a unique and beautiful dress. I'm glad I found the time to sew this up in the midst of everything else because now I have Ty's Easter dress sewn up 6 months early. And that's a first to be done sewing something so much in advance.dress she said she wanted to pick the color. In the shelves of colored broadcloth, this periwinkle was the one she chose. The white came from an IKEA drape set that I had bought this spring to make her 2013 Easter dress, but ran out of time in the midst of life.
pattern design read spring to me. I don't feel like it is a very fall look so we will be saving it for spring. Plus it's about 6 months too big.
The only real modification I made to the pattern was to trace the faux cap sleeve of the Caroline Party Dress bodice onto the Secret Garden Dress bodice pattern before cutting it out. The back is just such an interesting detail I would've hated to cover it up with a sweater or put a shirt under it to cover her shoulders. I also tacked the tip of the flounce lower so that it could have room to fold twice down the back and not just once. Then I tacked the center outside of each of the bends so it would stay exactly where I wanted it.
The pattern is written so well that it has very professional finishes. It's definitely advanced in the way that you almost have to read every step as you go as opposed to how most patterns follow the same basic steps and you can do them with out thinking. The pattern uses an invisible zipper which also makes it really beautiful, but right now it's big enough that we can slide it on without the zipper. I'm definitely thinking of using it in the future with other slight modifications to fit my Ty's style.the pattern.
