Sew Ready for Fall: The Amy Dress by My Childhood Treasures

Today is our final installment of our Sew Ready for Fall feature.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.  How could we close out a fall feature without a Halloween inspired post right?  Rachel closes us out with the Amy Dress from My Childhood Treasures adding a fun and spooky vinyl transfer.  

Hi! Rachel here today with a fun sew for fall - I chose the Amy Dress from My Childhood Treasures for a cute look for Miss P. There are long and short sleeves (both dolman style) included in the pattern as well as two neckband variations (the basic neckband and a mock turtleneck). I opted for short sleeves and the basic neckband, and I sewed a straight size 6 from cotton/lycra knit - her measurements put her in a 5 for chest and hips but a 7 or 8 for height, but I was hoping she’d get a bit more wear out of this and was fine with it being a short dress. The fit is exactly as I’d expected - Miss P has some growing room but not so much that it looks shapeless or sloppy. We paired it with leggings made from a fun Vintage Lace custom print in brushed poly, and she’s all set for any October festivities!

Oh, and one more thing: I added a fun vinyl design from a cut file by Katy McKinley of Thread & Grain (, and she’s offering a special discount code for PR readers. You can use the code “PatternRevolution” for 15% off your purchase in her shop - from now through Sunday, 10/8! Thanks, Katy!
