Hey everyone! This is Michelle from Falafel and the Bee. So happy to share this next pattern with you. I sewed up the Antalya dress for my younger daughter. I have to tell you that I really enjoyed it!
Rarely does a pattern surprise me with the construction, but this one did! It goes together uniquely, and easily.
The one place I did have trouble was with the exposed zipper. I had never (before this) installed one. I know... shocking! I am an incredibly visual person, and this pattern describes it, but it took me a few times reading it to get it. I did figure it out once I realized how the facing went in.
Other than that, it was really clear and easy to follow. I LOVE the end result with all it's details and sweetness.
The Antalya dress is available is sizes 12 months through 12 years.
This is a confident beginner friendly pattern written by Kid Approved for Willow & Co.
Two different back options are included.
I always go by my kids' measurements when sewing for them, and this one is spot on! I really like the fit on my girl. Roomy without being baggy. I sewed up a size 7 for my petite 9 year old.
My daughter loves this dress so much she wore it for Picture Day this week! I'd call that a success.
