Pattern Details

Please note this prints on US letter size paper only, for UK and European A4 format please view the listing, Georgina's Dress European A4 PDF Pattern and Video Instructions. Your girl will love this dress and so will you because its very easy to make. It has a pretty heart appliqu which you will enjoy making with a bit of Bonda-Web. The back is as cute as the front either gathered or just simply A line. Because the front and back has a yoke you can mix and match fabrics to create a variety of fun looks. In the autumn and winter I would use a heavier cotton or even wool and style the dress with woolly tights and a long sleeved t-shirt. Whether you are an expert or just starting out the video tutorial will make it very clear what you have to do. If you are unsure if you can handle this pattern then simply watch the video to reassure yourself before you purchase the pattern. And for all those of you that love to keep all instruction neatly in a folder,my instructions booklet (attached to size 2) contains page after page with photo's just to make doubly sure you know what to do. The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away. Your pattern comes with all the sizes - 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut. Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit. No loose armholes that are cut too low or sleeves that hang of the shoulder. The Millie pattern pack includes: A pattern in PDF format ready to print on regular letter size paper with assembly instructions Detailed step by step photo tutorial Detailed video instructions on You Tube Fabric requirements To make the dress a serger is an advantage but it can be done without. If you want to reproduce this dress for your own small business I would be delighted. Please note that the patterns I design are not to be used for larger scale production. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Can you sew a curve? Can you stick to a seam allowance? Want to know how to finish a neckline? Want to know how to get facings onto an armhole? Then this is definitely a pattern for you!

Sewing has always been my hobby and my profession. I first trained as a tailor as a young girl after which I worked for some fabulous designers. To fit work around my son I became a teacher of Textiles and Product Design. When my son finished school and moved to the USA I decided to start my own business and do what I love best; draft patterns and teach beginners and advanced sewers how to make their projects look professional. I hope you enjoy my patterns and instruction. Now we followed our boy to the US and I get to sew in the beautiful Californian sunshine!
