Pattern Review ~ Oh So Chic Harlow Monroe by Hailey Bugs Closet
I recently tested the Oh So Chic Harlow Monroe dress from Hailey Bugs Closet. Quite a mouthful, but what a cute, simple dress! This is a very versatile pattern with sizes 12mo-14/16 girls and it comes with tunic and dress length options for each size. Wear it year round - alone in the summer or layered over a t-shirt or turtleneck the rest of the year.
Abby is wearing the 10/12 tunic tester version but the finished pattern for tunics was going to be shortened a few inches. She says it's very comfy to wear and likes the big neck tie and contrast band at the bottom. It's a quick and easy sew like a pillowcase dress in a more modern style.
I've seen Christmas fabric versions and how about this Halloween version? Pretty cute!
