Pattern Testing: Sweet Simple Dress

Since the Sweet Simple Dress is live over here now, I can share one of the last projects I worked on in our apartment! (I’m in the process of moving and getting a house done/livable so there won’t be many (if any!) projects for the foreseeable future.)

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the photo that I posted when I did a pattern test for Allison over at Freshly Completed. As a pattern tester, I was provided with the pattern to test at no charge to me and remark on, thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you didn’t see the Instagram post, here’s another version

This pattern was pretty easily followed and put together, had a bunch of customization options and came out really adorable. Her instructions are clear and there’s nothing “funny” to do. This might even be fun for a child to do with a helper adult for ironing.

(If you’re wondering, the pattern comes with directions for customization which includes sashes, pockets and ruffles! I chose to use the daisy “ribbon” but it had to be hand stitched in and easily took longer than the dress took to sew. You can see more options over here.)

I think it’s available 6 mo to 4T, but it could be adjusted to fit others fairly easily.

I can’t wait to make more of these for gifts!

Thanks for the pattern to test, Allison! It was great as always. Can’t wait to see what’s next!

  1. I am always extremely impressed by anyone who can sew. When I was in junior high school, we had home economics for one semester. The first half of the semester was sewing; the second half was cooking. I aced cooking without even trying, but sewing–I killed myself during class and even spent time after school just to complete a simple A-line skirt with two pockets on the front.

    Even with the teacher’s help, the front ended up longer than the back, and one of the pockets was a bit crooked. I earned a B because I tried so hard.

    To this day, I don’t view someone who sews as a seamstress or a tailor. S/he is a clothing engineer.
