Violette Field Threads Genevieve Dress Review

Lovely Pattern

The Dress is beautiful only issue i would say is that I am really sad that you dont have a Copyshop printing option, when it comes to printing your patterns the strugle is real... my 1" box is perfect but the overall print put together dose not measure to the measurments mentioned, i noticed because of de exact measurments givin for the lapel piece and then measured the printed They did not match! I would buy Just about all your patterns of there was a copyshop option

I will definitely be making more!

I love this pattern so much! It was the perfect Easter dress. I’m actually getting ready to make a dedication dress for my newest daughter using this pattern. And also bought the girl size as my oldest daughter outgrew the baby size.

Great dress!

The pattern was easy to follow and I really like that the dress is different from everything out there. Great style for my 8-year-old.

Violette Field Threads Genevieve Dress Review

Violette Field Threads patterns

I have made several dresses using the Violette Field patterns. The digital patterns are very easy to print and put together. Although I haven’t made the Genevieve Dress yet, I plan to in the near future. The last dress I made was the Elodie and it turned out beautiful!! The instructions are very clear, with photograph pictures also. I’ve never been disappointed with Violette Field Threads!!

Genevieve Simple Bodice

I bought this pattern because the extra bodice flounce appealed to me and it did not disappoint. I have already sewn the simple flounce option with sleeves and am delighted with how easy and quickly it came together. At some point I shall do the gathered flounce option and I can see the basic pattern being very useful with and without the flounce. I am always very pleased with any design I buy from you...admittedly not all worked so far but they will be at some stage.

Absolute LOVE

The dress came out absolutely beautiful!! The instructions were easy to read and the pictures that went along with each step were concise and made it so the project went together quickly and smoothly. I cannot wait to make this again!!!

Lovely interesting patterns.

Haven’t made it yet, but love the different options. Really looking forward to using this and rest of the patterns I have bought. Love the fact I can sell some items (using up my stash) as long as I credit you for pattern. Only slight query - why so many dresses for kids have low backs?

Enjoying the fresh style designs

Good. Proud of the unexpected granddaughter a her new duds. I'm having trouble getting emails and replies from you regarding a double order of a pattern. Attempt to contact the day it happened.
