Jen from iCandy Handmade joined the Once Upon a Thread fun at No Big Dill with this fabulous girl’s dress, inspired by the equally fabulous outfits worn by the main character in the Fancy Nancy books. And for those of us who want to make one of these dresses for own little girls, she shares a 3-part tutorial.
Go to part 1 of the tutorial to find out how to cut the pattern and pleat the top.
Go to part 2 to find out how to sew it all together.
Go to part 3 to find out how add the bodice lining, the back closure, and of course all of the fancy trim.
While you’re there, be sure to enter the giveaway for a Fancy Nancy bookpack! Deadline is April 7, 2011.
