I LOVE the shape of the Carousel Vintage Sundress and Topper! The skirt has a great fit and flare due to its pieced skirt and ruffles. Pattern pieces fit together well and there was no "fudging it" to make pattern pieces come together. The bias-trimmed topper is cute and clean (on the inside and out). Also, as our weather is turning cooler, the topper will definitely come in handy! The tutorial was easy to read and follow and the photographs really helped me understand what I needed to sew/do next.
Overall, I really enjoyed sewing up the Carousel Vintage Sundress and Topper. It is a special dress- perfect for dressing up, or dressing down. It is easily personalized and best of all, Lil' Miss LOVES IT!!!
