HI! This is Sarah and I am here today with a review of the FooFoo Threads Enchantment Dress. If you have a gal that loves ruffles, like I do, then you've probably heard of FooFoo Threads patterns. If you haven't, then you need to check them out! My little girl is ALL girl and loves a ruffled and princessey dress and since she is just starting into school, she needs lots of dresses.
As you can probably tell, she really loves this dress. As a nod to the fact that she will be wearing it to school, I made the simpler version of the dress, choosing the tea length (there is also a maxi length option) and omitting the centrifice (there are directions on how to do this). I also did the "bustle" look ruffled back instead of the ruffled godets for my dress. All of these options are in the pattern and clearly explained as to when and how to adjust the pattern to make the many versions.
In addition to the 2 skirt lengths, 2 skirt ruffle options and 2 bodice options, this dress also features adorable ruffled straps that tie in the back. We decided to try it out with a long sleeve shirt under it as well, since we know winter will be here soon (brrrrrrr). I think it looks adorable with the shirt under it and we paired it with knee highs and boots for perfect cool weather versatility!
I think this gal is ready for fall!
This pattern is adorable, true to size and my little one loves it. It was not hard at all, and the directions included in the pattern are very detailed if anything is new to you, but it is time consuming because of all of the ruffles. With the versatility of wearing a shirt under it, this dress can be worn almost year round, so I know she will get a lot of wear out of it.
And it's clearly a play dress as well. :)
Note: This adorable fox and deer fabric is from the Good Natured Collection from Riley Blake that I picked up from Whimsical Fabrics.
