Sewing Pattern Testing- Made for Mermaids- Sophie Dress Add-On

Posted by Heather at Sunday, March 22, 2015
Back in November, I had the opportunity to test Made for Mermaids' Sophie Dress PDF sewing pattern. Then, in December, Made for Mermaids had a sew-along that I participated in, using the Sophie Dress. Since then, I've made at least half a dozen Sophie Dress- including a Dolly Sophie Dress for Lil' Miss' Samantha Doll!

Well, the talent and brains behind Made for Mermaids, Megan, is at it again with an add-on pack to the already fabulous Sophie Dress!

Here's what the Sophie Dress Add-On includes:
-Directions/pattern pieces to do Short sleeves, Cuff Sleeves Cap Sleeves and Flutter Sleeves.
-Directions/pattern pieces to do a Sweetheart neckline, a ruffle bodice.
-Directions and measurements to do ruffle hem (on the skirt).
-Directions and measurements to make the Sophie Dress into a tunic.
-Pattern pieces are no-trim (which means there is less cutting- yay!).

The Sophie Dress Add-On is very versatile! I had lots of fun sewing up two different versions for this quick test. Both dresses are size five.

Sophie Dress Add-On Dress 1, features a ruffle bodice, short sleeves and exposed zipper back.

Once again, the Sophie Dress Add-On pattern is clear and easy to read. There are lots of pictures included in the tutorial that aid in the sewers overall understanding. The Sophie Dress Add-On pattern is meant to be used in conjunction with the original Sophie Dress pattern. Therefore, you must have the original pattern in order to use the Add-On.

I love when an already established pattern can become "new" again! That's just what happens with the new Sophie Dress Add-On PDF sewing pattern! While I've sewn up the original Sophie Dress pattern lots of times, the Add-On freshens it up and opens up a world of possibilities for more, different, fun dresses! I can't wait to try my hand at the flutter sleeve!
