Pattern Review- The Sweet Little Dress and GIVEAWAY!

If any of you have been hanging around here for very long, you will know this dress.  It is one of my all time faves!

I am not sure I could count the number of times I have actually used my pattern-- I've had to re-print it many, many times.

I just whipped a few up for my brand new twin neices yesterday and how fun!  To make a baby size, it doesn't take that much fabric.   Scraps-- HELLO!  And so many combinations possible!  I am thinking it might become my 'go-to baby gift' (for girls, that is!).

Pattern Format:  pdf pattern

Sizes Included:  Sweet Little Dress for Babies- sizes 3-6M, 6-9M and 12M
Sweet Little Dress- sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T

What I Like About this Pattern:  Ummm, EVERYTHING!  The instructions are simple and clear without being overly in-depth.  A perfect starter dress for beginners.  And the possibilities for modifying this dress are endless!  Here are a few that I have made.



A few other ideas can be seen here.

And there are some AMAZING ideas on Project Run and Play.  Take a look at Kelly's Couture Cutie.

Anything I would Change:  I just need some bigger sizes!!!
