All individually purchased patterns that are not part of a pattern bundle are now available for instant download. The Marci Peasant top or dress, a DIY tutorial PDF pattern e-book. This is a pattern to make the Marci Peasant top or dress in size 1 toddler up to size 6/7 youth. The dress is a loose fitting bell shaped dress. For a more fitted look, I also explain how to make a fabric belt or ties to tie the dress behind the back. Endless options. You can make it with long sleeves or short sleeves, with optional pockets or a hem ruffle. I include 2 methods of creating elastic casings and also how to use elastic thread to have shirred elastic at the neck and sleeves instead of a casing. With complete photos and instructions, actual pattern pages, not just measurements. Plenty of room for applique. For a fancy formal portrait gown, make it in solid black, white or even red. You will need a PDF reader program to view the pattern. There are 13 pages of photos and instructions. There are 3 pattern SECTIONS of pattern pages to print out. The pages print on regular 8.5 x 11 printer paper. Then all you need to do is tape the pages together and follow the tutorial instructions. This is an easy top or dress to make and I've included complete instructions and lots of color photos showing you how. The pattern piece for the hem ruffle is included as a separate PDF file.
*In addition to fabric, you will need basic sewing tools and supplies. Understanding of basic sewing skills. A little practice and experience with easy projects, knowledge of basic sewing terms. PDF reader program installed on computer, printer to print pattern pages. Wax paper or parchment paper to make copies of the pattern in assorted sizes if desired, markers. Sewing machine and or serger/overlocker, knowledge of clothing seam finishes using the machines you own. Scissors, measuring tape, thread etc...Plush toys or dolls will not require the use of a serger/overlocker and for most clothing it is handy, but optional.
**Regarding pattern printing, you do not need to print the entire pdf file with all of the pictures and instructions. Just print the actual pattern pages of the file and you can view/read the instructions on your computer as needed.
