Bluebell Dress: Pattern Review

This is a sponsored post.  This post may contain affiliate links.



If I were to transform a doll dress into something I would wear it would be the Bluebell Dress by My Childhood Treasures.  I love this combination of a cute and girly dress with a fun and comfortable hoodie.  Seriously, I want one!  I will have to live vicariously through dolls for now I suppose.  (Although, I do have the Lane Raglan and it shouldn't be too hard to add a circle skirt to the bottom.  I might just have to make this a reality.)


The dress was easy to put together, especially with the clear instructions.  As you can probably tell, I currently have no nice white velcro.  I've been meaning to go to the craft store to pick some up, but life keeps getting in the way.  I could just order some on Amazon, but I have the urge to explore the magical craft store aisles.  That's why you see those ugly black bits of velcro peeking out.  I tacked some in quickly so that Catherine could use the dresses.  This pattern is awesome though and I know that I'll be making more.  I definitely recommend this pattern.

I just have to say, I love how little fabric it takes to sew doll clothes!  During this Dolled Up Event I finally have found a use for my scrap bin!  (I'm sure you have one too -- it's filled with pieces of fabric too big to toss, but so small that they never really work for another project.)  These dresses are made entirely of scraps from fabric I got at Girl Charlee.  (You can see some of the fabric on Catherine's Hearts Hoodie and my Julia Women's Cardigan.)

  8. Love these patterns and it makes it hard to select just one. Would love the Pajamas and think the Blue Bell would be awesome to get as a dress or Jasmine.
