SSP-032 Puff-sleeve leotard, overdress & underskirt for Patience.


Finally, I've finished a version of the Edwardian-style pattern fro Patience.

(This is also available for Ellowyne and Evangeline)

Patience looks adorable in it, and I like to give her big clumpy boots that poke out from under the ankle-length version.

Available in my Etsy shop:

My Craftsy store:

Or here on the blog: (via Sellfy)

Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates.  I always suggest comparing prices.



The leotard could be used with other Patience overdresses or pinafores, and the overdress and underskirt can be made in two lengths; floor length, or ankle length.   It would be very easy to adjust the length of the ruffles to adapt the pattern, or add a shorter skirt.


The cute leotard could be made with short puff sleeves, by just hemming the puffs and running a couple of strands of shirring elastic around the cuffs.



The leotard and skirt make a nice outfit even without the dress.  A ruffle on the leotard would give a nice Edwardian feel.


And as with the Ellowyne and Evangeline versions, the dress can be plain-fronted, or made with a mock lace-up front.

Now I have a yearning to draft something nice and simple.  this took such a long time!
