How to Lengthen the Bodice | Darling Ranges Sewalong

The Darling Ranges dress is a high waisted dress – this means that the waistline of the dress sits above your natural waistline. On most people it should sit somewhere just under the ribcage. If you prefer to have a lower waistband (probably helpful if you like belting your clothing!), here’s how you to lengthen […]

How to Add Darts to Back Bodice | Darling Ranges Sewalong

This is a last minute addition – but as I was making my samples for the sewalong I realised this might be an interesting and super easy variation for V1. As people have been making their Darling Ranges dresses I’ve noticed a couple have been leaving off the ties at the back so they can more […]

Darling Ranges

I'm getting a bit behind on blogging my makes! I have this and another to do. I've been pretty busy in the last week or so. I was visiting my friend in England, then I caught a cold; so I thought I'd spare the interwebs from photos of my red nose. I have no idea why this photo is so blurry! Anyway, I'd been loving Megan Nielsen's Darling Ranges dress for quite some time. I think the first version I saw was this one by Roobeedoo (Roo's notes on the bodice length were extremely useful). I…

FO: Oh my Darling Ranges Dress

I have a dress. It is not perfect, but it is everything I wanted it to be. I will be making more of these... starting this weekend! Things went wrong, things that may have been due to my inaccurate tracing or (dare I suggest?) a mistake in the original pattern... because I am not alone in having problems with the basic piecing-together of this dress in this size (XS). But the funny thing is, instead of wanting to throw my teddy out of the pram and rant on about how I could have saved £13 by…

Excellent timing on this dress, I finished just as the brief spell of sunshine ended! Ah well, surely the sun will come back soon.... I've had my eye on the Darling Ranges Dress pattern for so long, I'm so glad that I finally went for it. I paired it with some beautiful Anna Maria Horner Field Study Poppies rayon from M is for Make. First up, after seeing other bloggers' versions, I knew I should make a muslin of the bodice (FYI not something I normally do) I am SO glad I did! Based on my…
