Millie Rose Pattern Review - Double Ruffle Dress

Here is the Double Ruffle Dress by Millie Rose Patterns This pattern review is a little late. I reviewed this pattern at the end of last year. I loved this dress so much that I even used this pattern for my girls' Christmas dresses and then somehow this draft got misplaced. This really is a great pattern and it takes so much less fabric than most ruffly patterns but it still has that twirly girly look that my girls are always after. 

I made Miss Abby the size 5 and the fit is beautiful. She usually wears RTW 5/6. 
I had to take my pictures in the garage because I made this during a crazy snow storms we kept having in Ohio. Abby was in rare form and was all into choosing her own poses. I hope you enjoy. :)
The bodice has a great fit and has a nice finished look to it.
She calls this her princess pose.

The pattern calls for 2 rows of elastic in the back but I went with shirring instead. I prefer the look and fit of the shirring. The sweet sash finishes the look nicely.

I'll leave you with the outtakes that are my awesome little lady.


  1. Oh my goodness. She is ADORABLE. The dress is beautiful. Love the fabrics you selected.

    1. Thanks! I've been on a big grey/pink kick lately.
