I keep coming back to this one pattern. It is Simplicity 1179, designed by Keepers Dolly Duds.
There just are not that many patterns for Samantha, especially ones that comes together easily and well.
I had wanted to make the Thimbles and Acorns A Piece of History Edwadian dress for my little cousin. After the Civil War dress version of the pattern turned out to be disappointing, I decided not to waste more time on that for right now, even though I had the fabric for the Edwardian dress already cut out.
I also realized that the sash would necessarily be a separate piece, and I did not think this was the best choice for a seven year old. It would be too easy to lose.
Instead, I made Simplicity 1179 and used some of the design elements from the A Piece of History dress.
I am really pleased with it!
It's a very pretty, princessy dress that should warm the heart of any seven year old.
Here is the link to the first dress I made with this pattern. It is even using the same fabrics!
Here is a link to the second dress that I made with this pattern.
I feel that all three dresses are pretty and unique, and I am happy with them.
