The Cherry Blossom Dress by Mandy K. Designs

I recently got the chance to test the Cherry Blossom Dress by Mandy K Designs and I must say what a fantastic sew! Actually its been a couple of weeks and I've been aching to post about this dress. This pattern is part of the Aspiring Designers Challenge hosted by Pattern Revolution and the pattern is available as of today in their Craftsy shop and Etsy shop, and while you're at it check out all the other patterns Mandy K Designs has to offer becausee for now and for a limited time, they're all on sale, use the code "cherry20" for 20% off in the Etsy shop.

Let me start by saying what I love about this dress! The length is prefect for playing, not too long or too short. The sash is not sewn in so the dress can be worn without the sash. The original design, how many patterns have you seen use frogs. 

The details of the front insert are fun but do require some time. The frogs are decorative and there are buttons at the back for dressing.

Some of the pattern details:
  • Size range from 12 months to 14 years
  • Easy to follow instructions with tons of photos
  • Designed for woven fabrics
  • For beginners that are ready for a little of a challenge

I used cotton fabrics but it can easily be made with satins...how pretty it would be with a satin brocard!  

Until next time, xx.
