Lovely Finished Product!

Love how this dress makes up! Honestly the first time I made it I was confused, because I've never assembled a dress like this, but -- following the instructions carefully the first time -- it is actually very easy when you get the hang of it and I've made it in multiple times in multiple lengths! It's a favorite. Easy, but very showy!

Stunning Dress

I recently had the pleasure of trying the Cairo pattern and I must say, I am absolutely in love with it! I opted for the everyday version and was blown away by how stunning it turned out. The pattern's elegance is truly unmatched. What surprised me the most was how quick and easy the process was. Despite the intricate appearance of the finished product, the instructions were straightforward and easy to follow. This is definitely one of my favorite VFT patterns and I highly recommend giving it a try!

Lovely Finished Product!

I always have a little trouble as the pictures of the doll clothes supplied in the tutorial are of children sized dress and this is a little disorienting, but I persevered and, in the end it was kind of easy. Looks so good on Kit! Thank you or your wonderful selection of doll clothes.
