Pattern Test: Autumn Grace
Here’s another pattern test-this one for Pigg#2. Pollywoggles Patterns has created a quick, comfy, classic pattern that is perfect for cold weather. The pattern is made for fleece so it’s like wrapping your child in a blanket except they can do everything they usually do.
The Autumn Grace dress
Pigg#2 is a very feminine girl. She would wear dresses and skirts every single day if she could. Not many dresses are very warm though and I hate to send her to school uncertain if she will be cold on the playground or not.
Pigg#2 is also very picky about the way her clothing feels. We have had many rough days because everything is ‘uncomfortable’. No further descriptions.
This dress passes both the criteria of warm and comfortable. And as a bonus, it is a really fast sew. Because it’s made of fleece, the seams won’t fray and you don’t have to finish anything really.
It’s a nice pattern.
One of the biggest bonuses for me is Heidi’s instruction for blending sizes. They are so very clear. Pigg#2 is 6, but I made a size 4T with a size 5 in length. And it fits very nicely. It’s fitted through the waist and flares out to make a very girly wide skirt. And the fleece holds that shape so well.
We are so happy we got to be part of this test! Wohoo! Bring on the cold weather. Pigg#2 is going to be happy, warm, and comfortable at the same time!
