My latest pattern test is the Isobel dress and top pattern by Violette Field Threads. I sewed a size 5 dress version for Dede with flutter sleeves, and a double skirt with bottom ruffle! Isobel can also be made top length, sleeveless, with side ties, or with a simple skirt.
There are endless ways to use trims and lace on Isobel! I added crochet lace on each side of the contrasting side panels. I kept my Isobel super traditional, using fabric from Joann's "vintage" line of premium quilting cotton.
It has a unique wrap skirt and double breasted back that can feature either 4 or 6 buttons. I love using wooden buttons whenever possible :D
