My newest pattern is done! It is the perfect dress for those hot days ahead! It is a ruffled halter dress that ties in a bow in the front. Super sweet and easy to make.
I need 5 pattern testers. If you can whip up this dress, send some pictures to me and give me some feedback by this Friday, please leave a comment with your email address and the size you can make. I'll email you with the pattern and more information if you are chosen.
*Pattern does not have paper pattern pieces to cut out - the dimensions of the pieces are in a chart. The directions are done tutorial-style with step-by-step color photo illustrations to help you along the way.
*Sewing level: beginner to intermediate Sizes available: 6-9months, 9-12months, 1-2 years, 3-4 years, 5-6 years.
*I hope to have this pattern up for sale by next week and then I'm going to make a Woman's version!

So this weekend my husband watched the kids for a few hours so I could have some alone time...some "me" time...some time to relax and be creative. That really refreshes me! Does anyone else feel that way? Since the weather is getting really warm down here in the South I decided I needed a new dress. I made a halter sundress with a ruched empire waist and a ruffled border. It was a little too "bunchy" and big in the chest area at first so I altered it some and now it fits perfectly! Thank goodness I had my dress form, Jeanette, to use. She looked cute in it, too. I think I'm going to wear this one A LOT! I'm thinking of using different material and making a swimsuit cover-up next. Oh I love Spring and Summer!
