Simplicity 8304 and 9280 - Granddaughter Dresses with Ribbon Embroidery


A few posts ago, I shared how to do the Ribbon Embroidery in mySewnet software and now I have taken those embroidery stitchouts and made them into some beautiful dresses for my three year old granddaughters.

Here is the post on how-to and it is such an amazing detailed.  From the software to the attachment, I love the process.

My first one is the white heart that is a design in the software and I used the ribbon that was already on the ribbon attachment.  I did add the embroidery around the heart for just a bit extra.  I did use a tapestry needle and pull the ribbon to the back at the start and stop point of the embroidery

The pattern is Simplicity 9280 
I made a size 4 for the granddaughters, they are cousins and 2 months apart and best buddies. 

The second dress is the same pattern and I did a different stitch out, I set-up this heart  in mySewnet
and check out my video in this post  and I used a different size and color of ribbon in the attachment

The fabric is the softest cord from Style Maker Fabrics, I purchased 5 yards thinking I would make a Wilder Gown type dress.  I decided I really wouldn't wear that dress that much so I used it for the girls.

One more granddaughter needed a dress, she is 8 months old, I used Simplicity 8304 one of my go-to for under one.

I didn't want to add the ribbon embroidery to her dress, I know she would chew on the ribbon design.  So keep it similar to the others, I used the feature on my Pfaff Creative Icon for the ribbon stitch and it is such a fun look

  1. They are very cute.

  2. Nice and informative information . Once again, Bitcoin has bounced back and is currently trading slightly above $60,000 support zone against the US Dollar and the bulls are so much in charge to see btc to $65,000 and ahead. Its still a great time to day trade with the little you hold and its not still late to buy little btc and grow your portfolio as i have been doing with Mr Carlos Wilfred for the past 6 weeks now and i came to understand that you can make profit from the market at anytime and its even profitable when btc is bullishing so your portfolio can grow too. Mr Carlos Wilfred signals are so accurate and yields lots of profits, using his signals has made me 5.34 btc with my initial 0.7 btc which you all traders/investors will see is profitable. This is the most beneficial means of trading as experienced and he can be contacted via telegram @iebinaryfx or Gmail ( for inquiries
