Hey bloggy friends! I have been working hard on my new pattern but I still have a good bit of work left. I have the pattern drafted out in sizes 18mo- 6yrs. I'm working on the instructions now. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to test the pattern for me? You will get the pattern for all sizes with instructions (it will be the rough draft) and when I have a final draft I will mail all the testers a final copy (you know... the pretty finished version). What I need from testers? Any suggestions for wording or better instructions. Chest and length for the child and size that worked best. A picture would be great, but is not required. I would really like to have a couple of testers for each size. So if you are interested chime in. I would like to know what size you would be making and your skill level. I am hoping to have beginners up to advanced sewers volunteer. I should be ready to send the first drafts in the next week or so (don't hold me to it LOL!). I LOVE THIS DRESS! There is no placket and no buttonholes! Does it get any better than that? View A is without the ruffle and View B is with. The front and back of the dress is the same. I have made several of these dresses in the last few days and start to finish it takes about two hours. PERFECT! When I get the pattern in the shop it will be available for instant download or in print. I can't tell you how excited I am about this! I have really enjoyed this and I am already planning other patterns. Sorry for the dark pictures, I took them inside at 10pm. The yellow dress is for Maddie. I made her a little flower garden on the skirt and hand whipped rick rack on the curved bodice. The pink and brown is for Miss Molly, I just used the two fabrics and added tiny rick rack to the bodice. I like the way these two turned out. I think that the next dress will be a heirloom version. What do you think of "Miss Molly" for the name of the pattern? I decided to add another picture of this version I made a few days ago. I know it is better to see the dress on. Oh and that strawberry design is in the shop for FREE! Run over and download one ;) Just click here.
