Lots of people have enjoyed my “Rose” pattern, available in girls’ sizes 2 through 12. Here are several versions of the dress for your viewing pleasure! 🙂

This was one of the two original dresses I made for my pattern. It appeared in Sew Beautiful Issue 134 in 2011.


It was made of soft white cotton sateen, with silk organza at the neck, sleeves, and hem, trimmed with Maline lace.

This is the other version of the dress in the pattern

035a 036

It is bubble-gum pink Thai silk, with cap sleeves, a bubble skirt, and smocked inserts at the neckline and sleeves.

Here is another version I made a couple of years later


016 015

You can see that this is made like the soft white dress, but in casual fabrics, a cotton print from Fabric Finders and tiny cotton gingham. The fringe flowers are an OESD embroidery design.

Finally, here is a dress from the pattern which I taught as a class a couple of times. It has the bodice and skirt of the first dress, with the cap sleeves of the pink dress. It is made of white Swiss cotton sateen and silk organza. Instead of lace, I embellished with Zundt embroideries, with careful placement across the seamlines.
