Ruffles & Plaid

In January, I stumbled upon a sewing blogger (Leslie from Creative Chicks) who claimed to have found the perfect pattern and I even dedicated an entire blog post to all the amazing versions she created (see them HERE). Well, I finally tried the pattern (Simplicity 4927) with a plaid polyester suiting and cotton ruffle. I'm hooked on this pattern! Super easy. The only complaint I have is that I would prefer a zipper in back so it could be more tailored. With such a small back opening, the dress needs to be baggier than I'd prefer to be able to get it on the child.

Here is my version:

I am trying this again with a emerald green wool with gems around the neckline. I'll also add a zipper to the next version.

Here is the pattern:

I don't think it is in print any longer but you can by the downloadable pattern HERE.


  1. I want to see a pic with scarlett....

  2. I love your version of the dress. I tried to buy the downloadable pattern from the site you provided the link, but after contacting them i was told that they don't sell downloadable patterns. So, I did some googling and found a site were you can buy the pattern as a download. The link is:|186|186&pageCount=18&search=simplicity%204927&return=yes
    I hope it helps other sewers looking for it.

  3. Thanks Maria! I updated that link.

  4. its adorable, i love it with the suiting material.


Question or comment? I'd love to hear it!
