Channeling my Inner Barbie

Today, the Connie dress pattern is helping me soak the last bits of summer while channeling my inner Barbie. Of course in the process of making this simple yet glamorous dress, I had the opportunity to work with boning for the first time. Another first this year πŸ™‚


I honestly fell in love with this pattern even before I printed it out. The PDF pattern is only about 16 pages which means less cutting for me. The instructions were clear and straightforward, and there’s a video sew-a-along with this pattern. How great is that?


Items Needed for the Connie Dress:

  • Connie Dress Pattern
  • 2 yards of fabric
  • 16″ invisible zipper
  • 1/4″ boning
  • Coordinating thread & Scissors


When I put this dress on, I felt like a doll! It’s so cute and perfect for so many occasions. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fancy, fun project or a dress for an upcoming event. I love it!
