Really nice pattern and easy to make
I normally makes clothes for other peoples babies but wanted to make something for myself. I chose this pattern and it was super easy to make with only 4 peices of fabric. I made the bikini length with the ruffle. I matched it with the paper bag skirt and it looks like a dress when together but both pieces can also be worn independently. I am a beginner sewing and usually use stretch fabrics so this was out of my comfort zone but I can't wait to make another.
One of my favourite patterns to date. So simple to construct and looks amazing on
Be Bold Top & Dress Pattern
This was the first item of clothing I ever made for myself, and surprisingly, it was pretty easy! I made the dress with rayon challis, and it is very light and comfortable.
Such a cute piece, easy to put together. I've already made it as a top with short sleeves and as a sleeveless dress with the ruffle. I'm planning to do the button down version next
I love this pattern. I actually created a sew along for this pattern on my YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/fUNSpiP0Vnk
I made one for me and one for my best friend.
The dress was easy to follow and sew but doesnt work well with DBP as I sadly discovered. Its too heavy of a fabric which pulls on the bodice. I do love my dress but need a lighter fabric
