I am quite excited about this pattern, the Paris Party dress is really not just a dress. You see it is actually a top and a skirt but you can make it as a dress as well. The pattern is available from Mummykins and Me by Rebecca Page.
I do love Rebecca Page’s patterns but she has really out shined herself this time. There are so many options with this pattern and to also have add ons to create some truly gorgeous outfits, enough to create a new wardrobe is WOW. To provide the FREE PATTERN by using the code when joining the pattern support group is very generous indeed. The patterns are available in sizes NB to 5XL so every one has certainly been catered for.
The basic patterns comprise of a top in knit fabric and a skirt in woven fabric. The top has 2 necklines and several sleeve options, 2 lengths. The skirt is box pleated with a zipper, it offers 2 waistband heights and 3 skirt lengths.
I chose the boat neckline and short sleeves, regular length in a bonded lace knit for my top and some gorgeous Jennifer Paganelli fabric for my skirt to create a classic outfit perfectly suited for a casual outing or for a more formal occasion. For my skirt l chose the regular width waistband and above knee length but as l am a little shorter than the height the pattern is designed for it sat exactly where l wanted it to at the knee.
The instructions are very easy to follow and the tip for placing the pattern to construct the skirt without the seam in the front was ideal for my skirt as l was able to make my skirt without disrupting the pattern of my fabric, yeah l was so happy about that.
Don’t be too daunted about making these pleats, the instructions make it super simple to create.
The add on options are a great investment to create the dress and add on some gorgeous options to add to the wardrobe. Options include a T shirt neckline, puff and gathered sleeves, lace top overlay, elastic back waistband, lining the skirt, tulle petticoat, ribbon hemline and attaching the top to create the dress, all this for an amazing low cost.
The patterns are suitable for all ages and sizes, uniquely fitted to hide the mum tum and for those of us who are a little older (my grandaughter tells me she still loves me even though l am old) you have to love 5 yr olds. So yes we can all wear this and feel awesome because l know l simply fell in love with this especially when l got so many lovely complimentary comments when l attended a party a few nights ago. So wearing the Paris Party was perfect attire to wear to the party.
