Perfect stash buster

I made the basic dress with high neck & short sleeves and it turned out lovely! The whole pattern fit nicely on a fat quarter with fabric to spare.

Instructions are so clear for newbie sewists with lots of detailed photographs. I’m looking forward to using more of my stash (all right, hoard!) of fabric to create more fun dresses and experiment with new styles

Super informative!

I just recently got a smartdoll and decided I wanted to use some of my stash of quilt fabric, this pattern is perfect for just that! The instructions are incredibly easy to understand and it’s a great starting point to learn to sew for dolls

Thank you!!!

There may be some overlap from my other reviews - ah, the joys of cut and paste!

My lone girl in this size appreciates that she can expect some Requiem Art designs in the near future. I appreciate that this is a cute and practical pattern that I whip up during commercial breaks!

This pattern, Level Up!, is fantastic for the step by step detail that has been provided, as I'm sure others have commented. It encourages those new to the craft and is a great starting point for those who are more experienced and/or creative. I should also mention that I hand sew many of the outfits I've made from your other patterns, despite having a sewing machine, so one need not be discouraged if they don't have a machine at their disposal.

Thank you for your work and generosity!


This is one of the first patterns I printed using my new printer and jeepers am I glad! The instructions where concise, clear, and very newbie friendly. Also due to the way it's written it feels like Requiem Art is sitting next to me telling me step by step what to do next and I love it!!! Can't wait to conquer sleeves next! 😁

Thank you for making this lovely tutorial and then sharing it with everyone! 🥰🖖
