Simple and Sweet
This is a simple dress that looks really cute when finished. It doesn’t require many pattern pieces because most pieces can be measured and cut without a paper pattern. I did a sheer overlay and added one ruffle to the bottom of the simple dress - very cute! Looking forward to my girls wearing their dresses on Easter!
Ruthie Simple dress
Very easy to sew. I am a moderate experienced sewist.
I used some beautiful linen and made the tiered version!!!
Love at first stitch
Super easy directions to follow! I am a newbie and it was a breeze to understand. I’m hooked!
This dress is even cuter than I thought it would be. I struggled a little with the band for the bodice, but in the end it turned out! And my 4 year old loves it!
Go to summer top!
I made the top version and it was a quick, easy sew with the most adorable results! It’s definitely my new go to summer top.
Once again another simple yet beautiful pattern to follow. This particular pattern required very little printing and the directions flow seamlessly to create a beautiful and classic dress
I loved this pattern and love the dress on my little one.
Such a cute dress!
The pattern was easy to use and sewed up very quickly. I’ve bought several other patterns too and loved them all.
Ruthie Top & Dress
I absolutely love this pattern and my final product turn out so cute! Printing and instructions were very easy to follow. I am definitely going to be trying out more patterns from you.
Love this pattern!
The directions are very easy to follow and the dress and top are both sooooo cute!
Adorable and surprisingly fast!
I made the "plain" gathered dress with tie straps version, and I was very pleased with how this pattern came out. If you're using a directional print for the binding there's some mental gymnastics involved in making the print upright in the front, and I definitely had to rehearse the steps used to close the binding/cover the gathers a few times before I got what the instructions were getting at. But overall, this was a pretty straightforward, quick make and I was extremely pleased with the results!
Easy to navigate the website, lovely patterns to choose from and quick delivery via pdf once you have paid and ordered
I m planning to try this beautiful dress next week.
Dress came out beautifully I did an 8 year old length and 5 year old chest for my 7 year old daughter.
Granddaughters loved the tops and dresses
Four granddaughters loved the summery tops and dresses. Made two simple tops of cotton lawn and three dresses, one simple dress and two tiered dresses. I think the older girls loved the tiered dresses the most. First time I have made a tiered dress and am looking to make more.
I am just about to sew today and reading through the instructions I see that I don't have a necktie. I feel like that should be in the pattern pieces as I don't know how long or wide it needs to be. If someone could email me measurements regarding the necktie that would be wonderful. Other than this little problem, The instructions seem easy enough to follow.
Being extremely new to sewing I was able to successfully complete two of these dresses. Took a little longer for me, but I’m sure once I have more experience it will be much easier. Definitely a good pattern for a beginner.
I love this pattern!
It took a bit of time, but I managed to make several tops. My daughter loves her new tops very much.
