The updated pattern now has a long sleeve option. I wanted to use the automatic embroidery stitches in my sewing machine as a feature, so I designed this little dress around that. You need to choose a small print or plain fabric that will allow the embroidery to stand out and use a glossy machine embroidery thread --- it's so easy to do and the effect is very sweet. The Shelley Dress is a stylish little summer dress with a hint of vintage appeal. The clean lines and fine detailing make it a true classic. Tucking is a feature on the front and sleeves with decorative machine top stitching. Shelley is very easy to make if you have some sewing experience --- the main requirement is accuracy and attention to detailing. It's important to follow the sewing tutorial closely. If you have never used the auto programmed embroidery stitches on your machine it is worth experimenting to see what you can achieve --- always check your machine's user guide for the correct setting adjustments. PATTERN FILE --- the pattern is a digitally produced pdf file and comes in all sizes, color coded and clearly labelled; all instructions for printing and assembling the pattern are included. SEWING TUTORIAL --- you will also get a step by step photo tutorial to show you exactly how to make the dress.
