Ever since I saw this dress pattern, I knew I HAD to have it. I waited forever to buy the pattern because They are pricey ($15.00) and I thought if I waited I would find a deal. However, when I heard the Jump Rope Dress was going out of print I decided to give in and just buy it and I'm sooooooo glad I did!! I LOVE THIS DRESS and the best part is that Lily does too:)
It's an intermediate pattern, but it was full of detail and helpful hints. It was my first experience with a collar, a placket, and buttonholes and I didn't have to rip one seam! I really love all the cute little details on this dress like the cuffed sleeves with the cute little tabs, the pockets, and the sash and belt loops. I think I might go back and buy the toddler sizes... Here are the photos of Lily loving her dress. And don't mind the blue marks on it; I didn't want to take the time to wash it before having a photo shoot. I was just too excited!!!:)
ps. I bought my pattern along with another one from fabric.com. I also bought two yards of inexpensive fabric so I could qualify for the free shipping for orders over $35. Oh, and the fabric I used for Lily's dress was purchased at a garage sale by my mom:) Thanks Mom!
