Simplicity 1289: cute dress w/ purse

Good morning friends. Pictured above is another dress for my granddaughter. This one is a contemporary, modern style. It is made of 100% cotton fabrics. It is a mock 2 piece, with a solid chocolate brown dress section and pink, lime and red floral sleeves and ruffle collar. Wow, that added trim though- a cute little functioning "purse" sewn to the left side! The lime rick racking serves as a "strap". How cute of a design element is that! Granddaughter loves purses, and this dress. The pattern has several style options, including a dress pattern for an 18" doll. The fastener is a back neckline loop and button. To see a close-up view of the purse, the matching head band, and the pattern difficulty rating, follow the link below my signature.
Isn't this pattern just too adorable? Yet, it has that "big girl" styling. The head band is made of the pink floral fabric, with a purchased big pink flower hot glued on it. Overall, this pattern gets a pattern difficulty rating of:


  1. I love the idea of a "purse" on the dress! So cute -- what a blessed granddaughter you have! :-)


  2. The purse on a dress, so clever, and you can't lose the purse!
