Review by Laura
Hello! Great site!
You wanted reviews on modest dress patterns. I've used the
extensively and been very pleased. The Ohio Dress, #201, with or
without a cape, is an excellent beginner's sewing project, and the
directions are very clear. It's also really easy to adapt to petite
(me!) or however you need to. I've made probably half a dozen, and
gotten lots of nice comments.
The Canning & Kitchen Apron #222 is likewise very easy - only one
piece, not counting pockets, and looks good as well.
Their Little Girls' Everyday Dress and Apron is easy, too, with built-
in grow pleats. It didn't fit my 2-year-old so well, (too bulky in
the bodice, too tight) but larger sizes are great.
Their Chemise Slip #204 was an exception - too tight in the waist,
way too big in the shoulders, not so easy to adapt to different body
#020 Bloomers are a good basic pattern, very simple. For small girls
I might look elsewhere, but the ones I've made for me are perfect.
