Narelle's Poinsettia Party Dress


The pattern is an easy and fairly quick sew and is suitable for a confident beginner. I sewed it from fabric cutting to finishing off in an afternoon. The bow is a fun detail and is easy to make. I didn't have the right interfacing, so my bow is a little droopier than it could be, but I added a few tacking stitches to the top of the bow and it still looks great!

The fabric for the bodice is Wedding Rosette in satin pink, with silky satin charmeuse in solid blush for the skirt and lining. the wedding rosette fabric was an impulse buy and has been sitting in my stash for a while, waiting for the perfect project.

Who did you sew this for?

My daughter

What changes did you make?

My interfacing for the bow wasn't very stiff, so I added extra tacking stitches at the top of the bow.
I used Velcro for the back closure instead of buttons or snaps.
