The Caroline Party Dress – A Pattern Review

Caroline Party Dress - Sewn By Knot Sew Normal

 

After testing patterns designed by Haley of Mouse House Creations for the Willow & Co. Wanderlust line, i just knew I had to have more patterns by her. They are detailed and easy to follow. She not only gives you the instructions she includes tips to make things easier. I have never sewn an invisible zipper and I was a bit nervous, but it was a breeze following Haley’s instructions.  All of her designs are so classic and beautiful.

The Caroline Party Dress is a fully-lined, with an invisible zipper and faux cap sleeves. This dress has the option of a Peter Pan collar, belt loops, in-seam pockets and a tulle underskirt. You could easily make this dress into something very casual or all-the-way dressed up, just by changing up your fabric choices.

I knew exactly what I wanted in this dress. I wanted a garden party-esque dress. I originally had this fabric set aside to make a skirt for myself, but I knew it would be perfect for the look I was going for. The purple/grey/yellow fabric came from the clearance section at Joann’s and the yellow fabric was some muslin that I threw in when I was dying some rib knit. I just love the soft buttery yellow that it came out.

Miss G absolutely adores this dress. She has worn it several times already and has asked for me to make her a fancy party version. I love that it is dressy yet comfortable. It is perfect for playing, cuddling and picking flowers. The fully-lined version is also perfect for Miss G, who doesn’t care for exposed seams in clothes.

Her favorite part of this dress are the in-seam pockets. Perfect for storing treasures in when we are out exploring.
