    Hi there, I am wondering if any of you more expert sewers could lend this beginner sewer a hand? I am so excited to start the school photo dress for my 5 year old but am already intimidated by the assembly of the front pocket. Anyone out there happen to take photos along the way of the front pocket construction? Probably a long shot, but thought I’d ask. Thanks!

    Have you had a good read of the instructions? There are pictures in there that demonstrate what to do. Sorry can’t help anymore than suggesting that even though I have made this dress twice. All I can say is it isn’t as tricky as what is seems to be.

    Hopefully someone who has taken photos of the process can help.

    I have made this dress 5 times but it was before I started blogging thus I don’t have photos.

    The instructions are very very good,if you follow them carefully you should be fine.

    We are here to ‘hold’ your hand.

    Thanks! I read the directions when I was very tired last night:) Will read them with fresher eyes tomorrow, but it’s great to know I have virtual support. Thanks for the encouragement!

    I am just working on this and this pocket is CRAZY! I found the directions to be very clear if you read them carefully and really go step by step. The illustrations are great too. I have never done tutorials but I think I have it all set and I can take a couple pictures before I sew it all together in case it might help someone in the future. It must have taken quite a lot of trial and error to figure this pocket construction out!!! Really cool.

    Just another thought… I think the construction of this pocket is so involved… if I posted pictures would I be “giving away” the cool technique that most people can only get when they buy the pattern?

    We just had a request for a photo tutorial for this pattern, and I wondered if anyone has done one? A sew-along, perhaps? And if not, would anyone be interested in doing one? I need to choose between tutorials and developing some new women’s patterns, since I don’t have enough time for both right now. And the tutorial doesn’t have to done before the holidays or anything crazy like that…it can easily wait until January, if you’re considering.

    I could do that! I have been meaning to make another this winter in corduroy for my daughter.

    I would love to join a sew along for this pattern! It is on my pattern bust list for next year. Now I had better go and choose fabrics 🙂

    Great! And I’ve just remembered I have a vintage sheet put away for this pattern!

    I have been thinking of sewing this pattern and would enjoy and very much appreciate a sew-along/tutorial. It will be my first three-scissors pattern!

    Sharon, that would be wonderful! And we’d be thrilled to host it on our blog if you’d like. Whatever you prefer. Thanks so much!
