Darcy Dress Pattern Tester Review


I voluntered to test this one by Bubby &Me.  The Darcy Dress  Comes in sizes 1 (18months) up to size 10 and has both the shirt option and dress option included! 




The pattern directions were clear and easy to follow and the designer listened and incorperated tester feedback excellently! I have perfect confidence recommending this pattern to you... Although I do wish she had an affiliate program lol.



This top is the PERFECT back to school sew! it is so fast and easy - literally 15 mins to cut and sew! Only 2 pieces and a neckband, the dress has only 4 pieces and a neckband. 

The dress version is PERFECT for using kid sized panels on as well! If you are like me - finding patterns to use panels on where you don't have to colour block can be tricky and a bit frustrating to find. So I really love this!


The twirl factor is great since it is a half circle skirt, and of course circle skirts mean NO GATHERING!!! which means a quick attachment! Of course, all the time saved gathering is spent in hemming a circle skirt... (Anyone want to sponsor or buy me a coverstitch yet??! lol. no? ok.. I'll keep saving my pennies.)


I love how nicely simple the top is, works fab for Free motion applique on the front (yes I'll be doing some of that soon!) and for showing off your custom knits - and it uses very little fabric so you can get a lot of use out of that custom knit!


I just love the diagonal hemline as well. It is such a great look for older kids and littles!


The top version is a perfect fit - not loose but not skin tight.  I think it is safe to say you'll be seeing a bit more of this pattern in my blog posts... 

All fabrics shown are from True North Fabrics
The Darcy Dress is on sale for the next 48 hours ! (NOT an affiliate link btw.. I just REALLY love the pattern)


Leave me a comment below! What's your favourite pattern for using those custom knit panels on?
