Until recently that is... I was contacted by Whimsy Couture and they generously offered me the opportunity to test out and review a pattern of my choice. I was already familiar with Whimsy Couture patterns and I knew exactly which one I wanted to sew...
The Petti Ruffle Tank/Dress Pattern and Tutorial! (I practically ran to Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon in my hot little hand!)
What a fabulous little pattern! The Whimsy Couture patterns come via email and you are able to download them for immediate printing and sewing.
I always make her dresses a little long so she can get a few years wear out of them. The combination of this fabric and pattern, she will be able to wear it for 2 to 3 years, I'm sure.
The pattern was well written and very easy to sew. I definitely recommend it! I am pretty sure this is my little girl's new favorite dress.
After I finished sewing this dress, I made a 2nd trip back to Hobby Lobby (with another coupon) and bought some of the yellow ruffle fabric. I sewed up three little tops, and added different colored flower embellishments for my daughter and 2 little nieces. (My Mom just left with my daughter to visit my nieces, so expect another post soon...)
