This pattern is not my typical “go-to” dress pattern. I usually see these with some pretty monogram embroidered on the yolk. So I usually pass them by, for two reasons. I don’t have an embroidery machine, and monograms aren’t really my thing. I like them, I really do. But my daughters initials don’t exactly make a pretty monogram…how’s that for a terrible reason? Anyway, she is big into spelling lately. She wants to spell constantly, so I knew if we put her whole name on there, she would be in love. And I was right! She loves this dress! WE love this dress! It pays to step out of your comfort zone once in a while.
This dress is the next sew~a~long over at Whimsical Fabric Designs. And including this beautiful fabric combo, you will find 5 gorgeous fabric kits you can choose from to make this darling, timeless dress.
If you haven’t bought a kit from Danielle, you really don’t know what you’re missing. Getting packages from her is like, getting a beautifully wrapped christmas gift. I LOVE getting happy mail from Danielle. Trust me, you will too!! She has the best fabric choices and does a wonderful job of pairing up everything you will need. The fabric and all the trims, plus of course the pattern if you need it!
