For this dress, I opted not to make the long ruffled sleeves (using knit), but that option is included in the pattern making this dress ideal for year round wear. The wrap style skirt can be made in a top or dress length. I opted not to make the sash, but having a bow tie in the front adds an adorable touch! If you’re not a fan of the ruffles, you can leave them off completely or choose to add them only to specific parts, such as the neckline and bodice.
This dress is a wrap style, so it does close at the front bodice with 4 or 8 buttons. I chose to use 8 buttons, but my daughter did still show her undergarments when she was spinning or just playing with her dress and pulling it apart (which she enjoyed doing over and over). My suggestion would be to hand sew a snap around the mid thigh where the skirt opens to prevent the skirt from separating.
As with all Foo Foo Threads patterns, the instructions and photos for the Cinnamon Sugar pattern were very explanatory and would be easy for an advanced beginner to sew.
If you’re looking for an Easter or spring dress, add Cinnamon Sugar to your daughter’s wardrobe!
