this Cario dress pattern I also purchased a 2-10. Bbeautiful patterns.

having a difficult time fitting the top of the dress (2 and a 6) to this skirt, a little confusing. And fitting all that 26 yards of tulle in the 6 waistband, along with the other 4 layers, lining, tulle, and chiffon layers. wedding flower girl dresses. I am struggling. the 2 looks like she is popping out of a cupcake! and I did the tulle as it said.

Cairo dress

I love working with the violette field threads patterns. They are easy to follow. I have at least 10 patterns so far and plan to get more. I purchased the Cairo pattern and made matching dresses for more granddaughters. They turned out beautiful and my granddaughter loves the dress. once she put it on she didn't want to take it off.
