Clara dress

Enjoyed making the Clara Dress for my granddaughter. Had to make a matching bow. Then she ask to help make a mask. So we did.

Darling dress but...

The dresses turns out really cute and the fit was right on. I dint like the way the top was finished inside. The bodice is lined so there seems no reason to see the ruffle stitch lines and bodice seam inside the finished dress. I tweaked the second version to have an enclosed joining seam but did only one ruffle on each side as it was fiddly with the ruffles sewn only to the front.

My first ever VFT pattern!

This was my first attempt ever at sewing a dress, and I am so thrilled to have found VFT and their patterns. I have literally only seen straight lines up until this point, and I was able to do all of the bells and whistles of Clara thanks to the amazing step by step instructions! Will definitely buy many many more from you guys!

Love thiscpattern!

This pattern is lovely! Made my granddaughter a top and she adores it. I made her a "Alabama" top with embroidered elephant and the words Roll Tide on the bodice. She's ready for football season now! RTR!!

My daughter in law picked this pattern for her daughter’s birthday dress!

The pattern was easy to follow and the dress is adorable. I love all the sample pictures of completed dresses for each VFT patterns. They provide so much inspiration and so does the Facebook group. Keep up the good work.

Gorgeous pattern!!

Great pattern...I only ran into an issue attaching bodice to skirt/placket. The instructions weren’t quite clear that one of the finished ends of the bodice didn’t need to meet up with the finished end, but the attached end of the placket. It was my first experience with a placket! ☺️

Clara

I prefer dresses have a lined bodice and have piping at the waist. It’s finished, but not easily done. Also, would like a summary of directions so printing all the pages with pictures does not have to be done.

You have made the patterns clear and easy to put together by matching up the numbers and squares. The sewing instructions and pictures make them straightforward to follow; and the best part is the finished product! They are beautiful!
