Pattern Review: Farmcookies Doo Wop Days

Here is another 1950s doll dress that I made from the cute turquoise kitty fabric.

This one is made from the Farmcookies pattern Doo Wop Days.

It's a popular pattern because one of the two dresses in the pattern, this one, is a facsimile for Maryellen's school dress.


This was a cute and easy pattern to make.

I used a think blue ribbon that I think helps to set it off visually in the "series" of dresses that I made for this fabric.

One problem that I had was sewing the ribbon on the curve of the bib of the dress.
I sewed in on, but it doesn't fully lie flat in places.

Maybe I should have done a seam on each side of the fabric instead of down the middle of the ribbon, but it is very narrow ribbon, so that might not have worked either.

This is the first time I have used a Farmcookies pattern, and I was pleased with it.

I would have liked if the dimensions to be cut for the skirt had been listed on the page with the pattern pieces as well as being listed in the instructions, but that is a small quibble.
