    Great Summer Pattern

    Posted by Amanda Castro on Jul 9th 2017

    This pattern is such a great summer pattern. We love the maxi version. It's so cute and a really fast sew. If you are in search of a pattern with more than one option, this is the pattern for you. You can sew 4 different styles: tunic, dress, maxi, and romper. Don't forget to add the romper version on. It's a great addition

    I consider myself an intermediate sower, I make a lot of children's clothes but would say they are relatively simple patterns. This dress is beautiful, but I was worried to begin with. It turns out the pattern and tutorial are super easy to follow. I've also learned so much from making this dress which I love to learn more. I made this for my daughter and have had so many compliments on how adorable it is. It's a perfect fit, she loves wearing it and I can't say enough on how easy it was to follow. It's a must buy pattern and will be used again and again. We also love rompers so the free add on is perfect I'm really looking forward to trying that. Thank you Annelaine Patterns.

    Cute, fun and easy to sew!

    Posted by Mel on Jul 8th 2017

    The Firecracker is such a cute and fun design that looks great on! Quick and easy to sew, it makes a terrific project for a confident beginner. Love the ease of the PDF pattern - layered sizes make printing a breeze, and edge to edge page tapping is super simple! The versatility of the Firecracker is such a bonus - with 3 different length options to choose from, and ideas to further customise make it a worthy wardrobe staple!! And as if that wasn't enough, an additional romper add on pattern is also available! I've already made two garments for my little miss, and will certainly be making many more for summer :)

    I have already made 3 of the Firecracker dresses and my daughter (and I) are in love with them! The pattern is very easy to assemble and the tutorial provides excellent details, step by step! Can't wait to make a few more these for our summer wardrobe.

    Firecracker dress

    Posted by Danielle Till on Jul 7th 2017

    This dress is easy to put together, yet creates a stunning final product. My daughters have gotten a lot of compliments when they've worn their Firecrackers. It's great to have 3 length options for variety.

    This dress is lovely.

    We get comments on it from everyone. The criss cross straps give you so many options for styling and the variety of lengths paired with the ruffle option - and the romper add on - it's like having several patterns for the price of one. Quick, easy sew. This pattern is great for anyone from beginner to advanced!
