Oh Noelle. I just love this pattern so much!! First, you can’t miss with a hi-low skirt. Second, how many layers of tulle do you want to add? My girls love the girly stuff. Third, you also can’t go wrong with a boat neck! Fourth, it’s the QUICKEST sew!! Especially if you’re like me, and don’t hem any of the layers 😁🙈 I usually hem, because I want my clothes to look finished, but for these stable fabrics that won’t roll or fray, I left them 🙂
Noelle is the second pattern in the Winter Dreamy Collection from Made for Mermaids. It’s for knit fabrics with at least 30% stretch. I used a burn-out velour for one, and liverpool for the other.
-peplum or dress OR layered peplum over dress with optional pettiskirt
-boat neck with stand up cowl
-3/4 or long sleeves
This is a quick and easy sew because there’s no gathering, the bodice goes together quickly, and the circle skirt attaches like a breeze. But the design, and the fabrics you can use make it such a showstopper! That’s my kind of pattern 🙂
You’ll want to grab it on sale now, I don’t think Made for Mermaids is planning a black Friday sale.
And I think we’re going to need more Sundays in December to get through all the amazing Christmas dresses these girls are amassing.
The pins that the girls have on their dresses were from my Grandma. I love that special touch, and the chance to use something that otherwise would have kept sitting in my drawer.
