Do you like layers, ruffles and asymmetrical lines? Is your daughter a fashionista with a supreme sense of style? This is the pattern for you. I tested another pattern (which was labored to perfection!) which is from Sew Straight Pattern Company. The pattern is called Etage (french for tier) It features asymmetrical flounces (3-4) depending if you want to make the dress or shirt. It can be sleeveless, short sleeve or half sleeve. It is a great pattern for tweens, and modest as it covers the back and arms if that is something you are concerned about.
This is not a fast sew. Let’s be honest. You need to be extra careful cutting the right way and keeping the pieces assembled in the right order, otherwise the flow doesn’t work. Make sure you do this one when you don’t have distractions, and you have time! However, don’t get that confused with difficult. It is not hard. You just need to pay close attention to the assembly. With that being said, isn;t high fashion worth the extra effort? I know my 8 year old loves it, and my 5 and 3 year olds will love it just as much!
And here is version 1 while the pattern was still getting perfected!
I still love how it turned out!
