    This is just a variation of Heritage Doll Clothes’ Ruffled T-Shirt Dress.

    This is a cute dress, great style but I don’t understand the directions for the gluing. Especially at the neck line. What is it that I’m gluing?

  3. Laura says:

    This is a very cute pattern. Hopefully my daughter will be ready for sewing something like this soon.

  4. Jennifer Courter says:

    I love to shop your patterns, but with my slow internet connection, the video bogs down the other pics and I spend way too much time waiting on it to load (30 minutes and counting). Is there any way to be sure the pictures load first?

    • Cinnamon & Team LJC says:

      Sorry for the frustration 🙂 I will ask Ardently Admire for the image files and get them posted here, so you don’t have to watch the video to see the examples.

    This pattern is dreadful. It does not work in a woven fabric
    like the instructions said. The neck of the dress is WAY too big, and to make it fit the seam allowances have to be, like, an inch. The tank top option is even worse, the front is WAY too wide, and the arm holes are HUGE. This was very disappointing because the pattern looks really cute. 🙁

    • Cinnamon says:

      HI Celeste, Sorry to hear this. Are you sure that you have it printed at the right scale. I’ve seen this pattern made so many times and it’s turned out so cute!

  6. Danette says:

    I had the same problem as Celeste with this problem. I will check the scale in which it was printed; however, I did print several at one time and the others fit.

    Perhaps I missed something on this printing.

    I too was disappointed since it is so cute. I hope I will be able to rectify the issue.


  7. Valorie says:

    I have had the same problem as Celeste and Danette… the neck is way too big and when I tried to modify it, the rest of the dress did not look right. I do know my scale is correct since I have printed dozens of patterns and the rest have always fit well. This was very disappointing and I gave up trying after the third attempt. I have only tried this in knit, but am quite used to sewing with knits. Has the designer revisited this pattern and considered making any pattern corrections?


    • Cinnamon LJC says:

      HI Valorie, Sorry to hear this! We will pass along the information to Ardently Admire and see that we can get these issues resolved.
