Happy Independence Day - M6058

I have been crazy busy lately and haven't had time to do much sewing so when I get a moment do I sew something for myself? No, I decided to make the princess an outfit to commemorate Independence Day. 

She loved it, she kept looking in the mirror and running her hands over the dress when I put it on her.

Pattern Description: INFANTS' REVERSIBLE DRESSES, PANTIES AND HAT: Dresses A, B have elasticized front and back neckline, right shoulder strap and tie ends at left shoulder; dress B has hemline ruffle; panties A, B have elasticized waist and legs; panties A have elastic form self-ruffles; view A has purchased trim for dress and hat; view B has contrast ruffle at lower edge of dress and hat.

Pattern Sizing: S-M-L

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Definitely!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy instructions. The shoulder tie was more complicated that it needed to be but it was still not difficult.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I did get a blister threading all the elastic which was definitely a dislike.  It also seemed like it ran a little short or maybe my baby just has long legs.

Fabric Used: Cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? I might because it works up so quick but there are so many other super cute baby girl patterns out there.

Conclusion: Super cute, super easy pattern.  Give it a try.
