You asked for it - a style that is wearable,versatile, and ADORABLE! This classic A-line can be made in top, shift, or dress lengths in sizes ranging from 6 months to 8 years, and is just perfect for customization with applique or embroidery.
With lots of photos and detailed illustrations, this eBook takes you through the steps of making a fully lined "couture-quality" garment. Surprisingly, this method is actually much easier than making an A-line with facings - there are less pieces to cut out, no seams to finish, and no hemming! Since all the loose threads and raw edges are hidden within the garment, you can even make an A-line that is reversible!
You may be wondering how Carla managed to fit full-sized patterns in the confines of letter-sized paper. This eBook actually contains a series of bodice templates that you will use to create your own pattern in the length you desire. You'll be amazed at how fun and easy it is! Best of all, you can make new patterns in different sizes as you need them!
In addition, this eBook contains important tips on fabric selection and finishing. Also provided are several different fastener options, including buttons, snaps, and ribbon ties. And, of course, patterns to make A-lines for dollies are included.
