April showers bring May flowers and along with flowers come DRESS WEATHER! We are so excited about spring and summer that we are showcasing some amazing dresses to fit all of your dressmaking needs! Today we are starting with the new Charlie Dress form Violette Field Threads. Be sure to check out the blog for the rest of the week as we showcase a new dress each day. Happy spring sewing!
My daughter measured into the size 6 (well, a half inch over, so I followed the recommendation of choosing the smaller size) and the bodice fit is terrific! She's really a size 5 for height, but I almost always size up for that, because I don't like her dresses too short. I'm glad I did because i think the length is perfect! I see a lot more Charlies in our future!
