The Madeline Dress is here!!!
I am so very proud of this dress and pattern, words cannot express. I first got the idea for this dress when I saw a lovely number with a sloped front going upwards. With all of the stripes and wavy lines I am so interested in lately, this was a natural progression for me.
But I still wanted to do something more…
That is where the idea for the fun back came in. By keeping the back bodice sloped, but open, it gave the fun effect of a backwards collar.
But of course I didn’t stop there, because what dress would be complete without a little bow somewhere?!!
The bodice comes with 2 separate options for completion, Option One I like to call ‘the quick and dirty’ – have a serger? That is the route for you because you don’t mind some exposed bodice seams. Or Option 2, the more professional method for those of you who like to take your time to make an absolutely perfect product with all bodice seams completely concealed. Both ways yield an incredible dress, and there are loads of photos to help you along your way.
But the very, VERY best part? The digital images are only 4 pages! That is only 4 pieces of paper you have to tape together. How great is that?!!
I hope you like it as much as we do!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…Happy Sewing!
